  • The difference between resilience building and “stress management”
  • What stress is doing to our brains and why resilience building is necessary

Navigating a New Way to Network - Online!

Topic: Marketing/Sales            Provider: The Greenhouse and SCORE

OnDemand Recording From Small Business Week

Social distancing has thrown off the typical networking strategy: attend an event, find an acquaintance, be introduced to someone new.

Online networking can be your ultimate disrupter – and that’s a good thing! This new, and soon-to-be, ‘hybrid normal’ gives you an unprecedented opportunity to expand your circle of influence, ‘test-drive” new groups, better define your target market and hone your elevator speech – all from the comfort of your own home or socially-distanced office.

This interactive workshop will cover:

– How to continue the conversation after everyone has logged off
– What’s your follow-up strategy (do you need one?)
– What NOT to do in online networking
– How best to set up an off-line discussion
– What’s ahead on the networking horizon

Tune in for an informal discussion on productive and profitable ways to be an effective online networker.

NOTE- Since this was a recorded event, when the group leaves into breakout rooms, the recording will be blank, please fast forward to 48:00 mark and 56:00 marks during these times.
