Although the old adage, "It's not what you know but who you know that counts" is not a firm basis on which to build your career, it is true that your ability to build relationships with influential people both inside and outside of your company has definite benefits. You know the importance of creating a good impression and raising your profile with those who can have a positive impact on your future success with the company, but how exactly do you go about achieving this? Not surprisingly, appropriate communication plays a large part. In this course, you will learn how to improve your skills as an interesting and interested conversationalist and how to overcome the inherent shyness that many people experience when faced with a room full of strangers. The course also gives practical strategies for "networking" effectively in common business environments such as trade shows, conferences, or business socials. Armed with these skills, your confidence will soar, and you will cruise through events and gatherings that may currently fill you with dread and foreboding.
Anyone whose career or results would benefit from forming valuable business connections with influential people within and outside an organization
