About the Networking Powerhouse Series

Have you ever felt awkward, frustrated or just plain scared about networking? I have. On a summer night, in 2009 I sat in my parked car on a street in San Francisco attempting to gather up the courage to go into a networking event and talk to total strangers. I was terrified, stubborn and resistant. I started the car twice to leave. Only to turn it off, knowing I had to go meet new people if I wanted to succeed in my dreams.
After psyching myself up for 20 minutes, I finally walked into the event. I spent the next few hours hopelessly attempting to connect with people who didn’t care who I was or the value I had to give.  I stumbled over my words, endured uncomfortable silences and felt simply miserable.


It was that night that vowed to never let that happen to me again. I learned all I could about networking skills, reading books and watching videos. I attended 2-3 events a week until I felt fully confident and comfortable at events.
Today, I can walk into a room and tell you exactly who the highest leverage people are. I can jump in and out of conversations with ease and keep conversations going long after the event is over.


From speaking to WCS members, a lack of confidence in networking skills is a main hindrance to their success in the field. That I why I have organized a monthly networking series, exclusive to WCS, is a way for you to learn these same skills in a controlled, safe environment first, then at a live cleantech networking setting that same night. 
You will learn the same techniques, tactics and tricks that the pros use to make networking, easy, fun and most of all effective. I’ve studied many networking masters and distilled the main points down for you.


Time/Date/Location:

  • For most sessions we will practice a module privately, then walk as a group to a cleantech networking happy hour where we can practice the skill that was taught.
  • San Francisco, 1st Tuesday of each month @ EEFG 3rd and Mission
  • 5:00-6:30pm
  • Live Networking 6:30pm-8:30pm
