Networking Beyond Connecting, Following, and Friending

Speaker Tom Nielsen and Davis Erin Anderson

Facilitated by Tom Nielsen, Member Services Manager and Davis Erin Anderson, Community Engagement Manager at METRO.

Let's face it: in-person networking is tough. You need time and focus for quality networking--elements that are absent on social media and in short supply at professional happy hours. At this networking event, we’ll harness our collective experience to create a list of networking best practices as part of a lively, interactive agenda. You'll make new connections and leave with:

  • strategies for starting a conversation with an unfamiliar colleague -- as well as gracefully exiting
  • a toolkit of go-to topics for easy conversation
  • a handful of colleagues with whom to follow up

We believe that great advice can be generated from a room full of our colleagues. Please join us to share your own networking tips and tricks at this facilitated event!
