speaker troianello cindy

80% of new jobs come from our personal, professional, academic or familial contacts. While networking is beyond important, many of us struggle with effectively creating, sustaining and utilizing a strong network.

Cindy’s workshop will teach you the skills you need to psych yourself up for an event, work a room, develop contacts and be remembered afterwards.

This interactive workshop will also allow you the opportunity to network with each other and share our own networking best practices.
