Building Your Professional Network in 2021

February 16, 2021 | Webinar

Attend for Free

Building a diverse and supportive network is the most important thing you can invest in for your personal and professional development.

In fact, a recent study by LinkedIn showed that:

  • 80 percent of professionals consider networking to be important to their career success.
  • 70 percent of people in 2016 were hired at a company where they had a connection.
  • 61 percent of professionals agree that regular online interaction with their professional network can lead to the way into possible job opportunities.

However, most people don’t like to “network” because the common form – going to events, swapping business cards, and gathering meaningless LinkedIn connections – simply doesn’t work.

What you need is a networking strategy that focuses on building meaningful connections that leads to new opportunities for growing your career or business.

In this webinar, serial social entrepreneur (founder of Be Social Change and For All Drinks) and career coach Marcos Salazar will share key strategies and techniques on how to build inspiring and purposeful relationships as well as ways to leverage your network to advance your career or business in authentic and mutually beneficial ways.

Build skills in:

  • Networking
  • Relationship Building
  • Career Growth
  • Providing Value
  • Elevator Pitches
  • LinkedIn and Social Media Networking
  • Growing Your Network at Conferences and Events

This webinar is for you if you’re:

  • Looking for a new job
  • Wanting to change careers
  • Looking to grow your business
  • Searching for collaborators or partners in your work
  • Wanting to increase your visibility as an entrepreneur or thought leader
  • Seeking ways to attract new clients (for example: creatives, artists, consultants, coaches, agents, and speakers)
  • A student or a recent grad building a foundation for your future career path
  • Someone who doesn’t enjoy networking as you’ve been taught to do it
