Networking for Success

Recommended Prerequisites

No prerequisites are required for this course.

Course Overview

Self Paced Short Courses

Business networking is an effective and efficient way for business people to connect, develop meaningful relationships, and grow their businesses. These achievements don’t come through a direct sales approach, however. They come from being interested in helping others, in listening, and in purposefully meeting and introducing people to one another. In this course, you’ll learn the essential ingredients for business networking, including in-person, people-centred connections and online spaces such as LinkedIn.

Learning Objectives

  • Introduce yourself in a meaningful, memorable way, even if you’ve never worked on an elevator pitch before
  • Be goal focused about networking so that you make the most of events you attend
  • Apply the concept of give first and be helpful as part of a system of reciprocity
  • Use strategy and systems in order to network effectively
  • Leverage the availability and usefulness of the Internet, including LinkedIn and Twitter
