Present Yourself More Effectively: Tools for Improving Your Networking and Self-Promotion
How do you come across to others when you meet them in settings important to your career? This presentation will prepare you for making strong introductions and connections when networking and interviewing. Attendees will be introduced to strategies for working with the the whole self to help energize and focus before interviews and networking events. They will also learn techniques for relaxation and for using body language to your advantage. In addition, Laura will provide insights for developing effective verbal and written introductions.
The goal is to energize and inspire participants, provide them with effective self-presentation strategies, and prepare them to think quickly on their feet so that people will sit up and listen!
