Solving for X- Unraveling the complexities of networking
Saturday, June 23, 2012 from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM (EDT)
The Solving for X Workshop
Is "networking" a dirty word for you?
It is for a lot of people. This class is not about the networking you know. It's about the networking that you don't.
Careers in the arts are built and survive on relationships. In order to develop those crucial connections you need to be a relationship architect and use the tools that you have to connect with the contacts you need.
This workshop is about finding and using those tools so that you are on the tip of everyone's tongue in your industry.
You'll learn how to tap into the network that you currently have and how to grow that network to help you reach your goals.
You'll learn how to turn a one on one meeting into a fountain of opportunity.
You'll learn about the psychological principals that are running behind the scenes of every interaction you have with a member of the industry.
Most importantly, you'll learn about managing your relationships so you can get the most out the network you currently have and the network you have yet to build.
The next workshop will be Saturday June 23rd from 10am-12pm
Seating is strictly limited.
The Location will be at Paul Michael's The Network Studios on 242 West 36th st.
Schedule 10am-11:30am- Workshop 11:30-12pm-Active networking
See below for what others had to say about the seminar.
"Whether you consider yourself a social butterfly or socially awkward, Solving for X has something for everyone. Today it's all about “who you know,” but nobody ever tells you “how you know.” Michael breaks down the idea of networking into manageable ideas and then has you implement them through fun exercises. It's a lesson in anti-schmoozing. It really helped me realize where my strengths lie and what I need to work on so that I can make the best of building relationships with those within the industry. And on top of it, he's super awesome! So that helps, too. :)"- Sarah Jacobs- Actress
