April 2020: The Art of Networking | BostonSpeaksSeries

About this Event

What's the one thing professionals count on to widen their circles, keep tabs on job opportunities, and stay up-to-date on the trends in their fields?

NETWORKING.

Unfortunately, many professionals lack networking experience - usually because getting started is intimidating. However, every ounce of data is screaming that a large professional network is a significant asset capable of dramatically accelerating your success.

Don't worry; networking doesn't have to be difficult or distressing.

You'll get actionable advice when you join us on April 3rd for a live #BostonSpeaksSeries webinar on the Art of Networking.

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN:

✓ How to Start Building Your Networking Skills

✓ Barriers to Effective Networking

✓ How do you "Network" Online

The BostonSpeaksSeries is a panel breakfast series for the entrepreneurial and business community. First Friday, every month. Learn more about BostonSpeaks.

STEVE VILKAS,

THE DOT CONNECTOR

I began my professional journey as a socially awkward, imposter syndrome suffering, untrained and unsure young man with potential which had to be extracted out of me like a pearl from an oyster. It took the mentors, members, and indeed the whole entrepreneurial + innovation ecosystem to convince me that I wasn't a networking loser but someone who deserved a seat at the table and the water cooler. I leaned into the goodness of our people, and the people rewarded me amply for my confidence. Now I'm the Dot Connector, and all that means is I'm trying to give back - adding value as a thank you for all the kindness.
