Workshop Content

We have all heard the saying, “it’s not what you know, but whom you know” and it’s certainly true that to create new work opportunities and maximise your potential, it is important to meet the right people at the right time…and make the right impression.

To help you do so, this workshop will provide you with key tips and tools on how to ‘network’ successfully, face-to-face. It covers:

  • understanding how networking works
  • how to choose and prepare for a ‘networking’ event
  • how to make a positive impact
  • how to avoid common mistakes.

Learning outcomes

By the end of the workshop you will have:

  • gained and improved your networking skills
  • re-defined your skills to make them work better for you
  • learned how to be more comfortable in ‘uncomfortable’ situations
  • be more confident to go out there and meet new people.

Tutor: Selina Brown

POLITE REQUEST: if you are successful in obtaining a place on this workshop and, due to unforeseen circumstances, you are unable to attend, please let us know asap because we have others on the waiting list who we can allocate your place to. If you do not let us know this will disadvantage another member. Also, we may lose the funds that enable us to provide these workshops to all members including yourself.

NOTE: 1. If we were to postpone or cancel this workshop due to unforeseen circumstances (this has happened only twice in five years due to tutor illness and a tube strike), we will be unable to reimburse any costs such as pre-booked travel expenses. If this were to happen in the future, we will email and telephone you as soon as we know that there is a cancellation and attempt to re-schedule the workshop asap. 2. We are required to undertake a short equality & diversity survey, which you will need to fill in before or at the workshop. The information provided will be treated in the strictest of confidence and processed in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998 and will help in our commitment to E & D.

IMPORTANT: Unfortunately we cannot always offer everyone who applies a place due to high demand. We set up a waiting list and contact people if there are cancellations. If you do NOT receive confirmation that you have secured a place, please do not turn up on the day because we will not be able to admit you. However, please keep applying because we work hard to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to attend at some point.
