The Nuts & Bolts

We will address your mindset with a Rise & Shine exercise designed to get you to identify all the thoughts and feelings that bubble-up when you think about networking.

 

You will get strategic tips on how to break through pre-networking anxiety by walking through the Top 5 Networking Fails and how to avoid them (with stories & examples). We will also help boost your confidence with an exercise designed to bring out your strengths (particularly when you feel tongue-tied or you’re getting a touch of ‘get-me-outta-here’ fever!

 

We will cover everybody’s favorite: how to insert and remove yourself from a conversation without feeling super awkward (though examples and practice situations).

 

NOTE: We are not interested in overselling this workshop. We are managing the max number of people who can attend so you will be able to learn in an intimate, safe environment – with time for individual questions and attention.

 

Personal Stylist Natalie Owens will walk us through a “What Not To Wear” specifically designed with the Halifax Professional in mind.

Because really, Halifax has it’s own thing going on #amiright?

 

We will give you Business Card & LinkedIn Profile best practices to get you representing yourself professionally – and in a way that feels genuine.

 

BONUS: If you book when we offer our spa services and professional headshots package you get 3 different posed photos within 3 days. Check out these examples:

We will cover Best practices for following up with leads after networking events & Pro-tips for remembering names

 

AND of course – we will do some situational networking where we give you common networking challenges and you work through them with your new skills in a safe environment – instead of trying them at a real networking event for the first time

 

BASICALLY you’re going to walk out of this workshop with a newfound confidence and comfort about how you present yourself professionally – and that has a direct impact on the types of genuine connections you will make. And isn’t it really all about the relationships?

 

Why Not Wing-it?

Want to learn to fly a plane? Become good at anything? You have to prepare and practice.

Our workshop is packed with exercises, activities and proven tools, followed by a trial networking event so you can practice your skills in a safe environment and see instant results.
