Video Training Course: Networking for People Who Hate Networking
Networking for People Who Hate Networking

Much networking advice assumes that you need to be an off the chart extrovert to succeed. Nothing could be further from the truth. In this video workshop, Devora Zack proves that real networking means working with – rather than fighting against – your natural personality.

This video shows you how to forge meaningful, lasting connections in all kinds of situations, not just formal networking events. With the help of engaging exercises, you’ll learn techniques for cultivating your networking “A” game, while remaining true to yourself.

Learn how to make a positive first impression and how to end a conversation gracefully
