Workshop: Networking Secrets from an Ex-Wallflower™

Networking is a major part of achieving any career or business goal. Yet introverts and others are apt to avoid it, even at the expense of their dreams! It’s time to change that.

Learn from a former wallflower how to make networking easy and fun.
It’s possible!

You’ll come away from the brief workshop with:

  • Relaxed shoulders.
  • 5 secrets to make networking work for YOU.
  • A refreshed view of your next steps for networking.
  • New connections

This presenter doesn’t force you to be who you’re not. She provides realistic strategies to work with who you are. ~Anonymous

I feel like you demystified networking for me, and helped me to see it from a different perspective. I now see it as relationship and community building, and it’s actually fun. ~Lisa M.

Val Nelson, Career & Business Coach: Besides sharing my own experience of going from hating to enjoying networking, I will share what I have found works when providing coaching for introverts.

You can hear some of my story and tips in this brief radio interview:

What Will It Be Like?

This is an interactive workshop, but there’s nothing scary and nothing forced on you. (Read how a previous workshop went.)

We’ll have a combination of discussions, individual worksheets, group activities, paired exercises, and optional open networking at the end. Everything is designed with introverts in mind, and my graduates have all found it easy to participate.

That was very easy to attend without worrying about having to be put on the spot. ~Anonymous
