Primary event: Networking for Introverts
Does the word 'networking' make you uncomfortable? Do you believe it has something to do with introversion? The truth is, some of the best networkers are introverts, but it's our mindset that needs work on. Join Bobby Umar, 5x TEDx speaker and author of "How to Network Anywhere, Anytime, with Anyone", as she shares his best insights into more mindful networking, and creating relationships that foster great meaning and wellness. Learn to build, grow and leverage your network. Discover how to make a lasting impression, grow a large network of contacts, nurture mutually beneficial relationships and maintain authenticity in person and online, including practical tips to leverage platforms like LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Even if you are an introvert in a new environment, Bobby can teach you how to leverage your introverted superpowers and be one of the most memorable people in the room.
