This session with Benedicta Banga of Leadher Initiative will show you how to create better networks using technology.
People who are successful in their careers have mastered collaboration through networking. They get things done faster and achieve more because they know the right people that can support their goals and provide solutions to their challenges. When they don’t know the right people they tend to know someone who does or are able to connect with people they need and build the relationships quickly.
Networking, like public speaking is one of those activities people dread and will do anything to avoid. When done incorrectly it stops any great connections happening but done correctly it will provide mutually beneficial opportunities to help each other.
In this workshop you will learn:
How to get over your fear of networking
Who to network with
Using technology to grow a relevant network
How to build your relationships
You be able to use this information to create a networking strategy that works for you so you can build a relevant network faster

About Trade School
The Trade School network is a collective of self-organised barter-for-knowledge schools across the world. Trade School began in January 2009 as an experiment by a group of artists in New York City who wanted to celebrate local wisdom, mutual respect, and the social nature of exchange.
Trade School Digbeth is a local chapter of this initiative driven by the Impact Hub Birmingham community and friends. For more info and other upcoming Trade School classes, click here.
