Tips and Tricks for Networking

SCWIST recently has the pleasure of hosting Sue Maitland, PCC for Overcoming Your Objections and Leverage the Benefits of Networking.

Networking is an essential skill in today’s fast-paced and ever-changing world. It can make a huge difference to the opportunities you uncover and the support and success you experience in your career. Sadly, many people have an aversion to networking and our workshop leader, Professional Life Coach, Sue Maitland, was one of them. Now she’s a passionate advocate for the benefits of networking and even developed a workshop Networking for Success to help others embrace making powerful connections through networking.

During this event, participants learned how to:

  • Uncover the barriers that stop us from networking
  • Re-frame their perception of networking
  • Understand the benefits of a strong and supportive network
