Joni Garza, SCORE Administrator 
Fort Worth - Chapter 120 

Building and Burning Bridges - 07/29/2019 - C0120 

Admit it! Networking can be a sincerely fake-smiling cold-hearted experience.  Giving someone the once over.  Determining someone’s usefulness or uselessness. Handing out business cards like a blackjack dealer.  Making mindless small talk.  And so on!    Precisely, why I preferred popcorn and binge watching “Law & Order!  I have a feeling, I’m not alone! But it doesn’t have to be this way. 

 This workshop will help you look forward to networking! Not convinced? Well, it will at the veryleast take the sting out of networking.

In this workshop you can expect the following:

  • Appreciating the benefits of networking
  • Discover your networking preferences – a customized approach
  • Dos and don’ts of building relationships
  • Relationship building techniques, tools, and tips
  • Identifying networking opportunities – looking beyond the crowded conferences

It will be interactive.  It is meant to be educational, engaging, and enlightening in a judgment-free zone!  

Workshop Fee $20
