#NYC1u: How to Network in Real Life and Social Media

Start: Thursday, June 25, 2015 3:00 PM

Do you find networking hard or worse, insincere? Is it difficult to remember faces or in what context you met someone? Is effective follow up something you could use pointers on? Learn how to use digital tools and old fashioned charm to answer these questions and take your networking skill to the next level. Using digital tools like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn combined with the ethos of Adam Grant’s 2013 Award Winning Book “Give and Take,” this session will give you tips and systems for successful networking. Part presentation, part demo, part workshop – this session will allow you to utilize the skills you learned around effective networking with your fellow conference and planning participants.
