Online Networking

Grow your Business with Online Networking

Why do I need to network? What is the benefit of networking online?

As important as networking is to growing your business, most people recoil at the thought of attending these types of events and see ‘networking’ as a dirty word.

The good news is that networking online is not only possible but even preferable. Doing so can bring big advantages for you and your business by expanding your network of contacts, developing relationships, and opening up new opportunities.

Adela will show you how to re-frame the way you look at networking and how not only can you improve your networking skills but also actually enjoy the thought of connecting with new contacts (even if you’re an introvert!)

During this session, Adela will guide you through her proven strategies to use when engaging people online, particularly through social media platforms and how to make new connections to grow your business network.
