UBIS Workshop: Networking Skills
Networking is key in finding a job or in pursuing a career. UBIS, in partnership with Mike Johnson, writer and expert in talent management, has designed a unique workshop to give participants a practical tool box to be successful. The content includes: What is a network? What can it do? How do you set it up? How do you cultivate and nurture it (grow it) and what is the likely result? In addition to this we will provide you with new ways to extend your network, though social media and most importantly face-to-face interaction. Topics include: How offering free advice helps build a network for you; How doing research helps build a network and makes you a “person of interest“/ “Go To Guru”; What is it going to cost you; How to set a budget; Getting others help – “You develop your own network”; Going live with a publication that will ensure your reputation; How to make it yourself; How to do this though social media; Creating a “buzz” about who you are and what you can offer.
