Participants in the workshop look at their own social and professional networks through the eyes of their colleagues and peers. They explore how the people they know can practically contribute, in large ways and small, to their projects and goals. In groups of four or five to a table, participants share their ambitions, and explore their challenges. When participants let each other know what they are up to, they get access to resources they may not have dreamt possible.
Entrepreneurs, employees and stakeholders of small and large organizations around the world have participated in the workshop and have experienced the long-term benefits it produces.
At the end of the workshop, participants
- Know how to develop networks that match their goals
- Have tools at their disposal to utilize the networks of friends and colleagues
- Are competent in using social media in network strategies
- Find it difficult to leave - they have so many things they want to ask the other participants!
Companies and organizations are invited to request specific components to the training - for example on how to use networks in resource expansion, or how to map the influence of specific stakeholders on the outcome of your project.
