Conquer Summer Networking: The Art of Effective Conversations

The key to building a successful creative career is the conversations you create along the way. In this interactive workshop, we’ll do a fast-and-furious introduction to the art of effective conversations.
Networking can boost your professional talents, influence, satisfaction, and opportunities. And while some think of it as a self-promotional and necessary evil, we’ll look at it from another view: a rich opportunity to connect and create new possibilities. Participants will leave not merely inspired but also more capable, with a concrete set of practices and approaches for turning strangers into allies.
