Networking is the most honorable and valuable endeavor in which you can engage, because it is built on a spirit of generosity. At its core, networking is all about crafting win-win alliances where both parties provide value. You may think that “networking” can only take place in person, but this is a myth. In fact, most networking takes place from afar, and in some cases, the individuals may never even meet in person. In this webinar, we will discuss strategies and tactics for finding new collaborators and building mutually-beneficial partnerships with professionals across the globe (and perhaps on some exoplanets too.). We will utilize various methods to find and reach out to people, and start and nurture those critical conversations which can birth amazing collabs. Let’s network.
