ProfDev: Art of the Schmooze

Are you ready to stop wasting time networking?

Join Socializing for Justice for a  fast-paced, fun & interactive ProfDev (professional development training) on the Art of the Schmooze on Tuesday, January 3, 6:00 - 8:30 PM. 

Fee: $15 advance/$30 door is split with the trainer.
Limited space - register ahead of time 
Credit cards accepted online and at the door.
Newcomers always welcomed!

Art of the Schmooze
Forming and cultivating relationships is at the heart of any successful fundraising campaign, volunteer drive, committee effort or community building activity. This training will give you the confidence to pursue your personal and professional goals - from the importance of shaking hands and making eye contact, to tips on the best opening line and how to exit a conversation gracefully. An amazing side benefit is that you'll learn how to create a welcoming community space by keeping an eye out for outliers, considering yourself a host instead of a guest and knowing how to compliment someone without "othering" them.
