Networking, creating a foundation of personal contacts who will provide support, feedback, insight, resources, and information, is essential if aspirational leaders want to offer more, have more impact and deliver on their personal, operational and strategic goals. However, it is often cited as the thing that most women business leaders face with dread.
This event will explore tools and techniques to enable you to network and build effective connections in a way that is unique and authentic to you.
This will include a session delivered by Ellen Ross, Neuroscience Negotiator and Consultant at Company Cortex:
"The brain makes up 2% of our body weight, but consumes 20% of its energy"
Whether you’re an aspiring entrepreneur, already running a growing business or dreaming of starting a business, networking is key on your journey to success. During this session, Ellen will be exploring the gender differences when it comes to networking and why you should be using your innate biological skill set as a women business leader to help you build your effective network.
This will be followed by a panel made up of some of our women business leader customers to discuss the challenges and opportunities they’ve faced in building their own effective networks.
We’ll explore how to:
• Challenge the misconception that effective networking is a predominately male trait
• Understand the value that you bring to your network
• Prioritise your time and resources to invest in a few activities that will enhance your network
There will be an opportunity to network with your counterparts throughout this event to help build your local network.
