Why are introverts better at building lasting networks? Why is faking it a bad strategy? What do extraverts have to learn to grow better relationships? In this workshop we will learn how to captivate our audience, by deconstructing the perfect pitch, making a great first impression and how to build lasting relations. Change the networking game from the superficial business card exchange market to growing professional (and personal) relationships that will help you throughout your future career.
In this workshop you will learn how to structure a perfect pitch that can capture your target audience and go from a presentation to a conversation … and perhaps an invitation. You’ll put the theory in practice and get feedback on your efforts. We will cover different types of pitches and where what is best used. We will talk about how you can make it ‘natural’ so you will actually use your pitch.
Furthermore we will learn networking strategies that you can personalize to meet your personal style and connect with people you actually like. You will learn how you can leverage LinkedIn to maintain and expand your network with purpose. How to start conversations that build real connections. During the workshop we will put all the elements together into a plan that you can use to become a better networker, both as an introvert or an extravert.
