It’s not what you know, it’s who you know. Success in business and the workforce means having a network of contacts at your disposal. Engineers and early stage entrepreneurs especially can sometimes be introverted and/or lack the people skills necessary to allow their ideas to be heard. In social and business meetings, learning how to work a room is critical. Our speaker Diane Darling is a nationally renowned author and speaker. Spend an evening with Diane to help you gain confidence, approach people, learn the networking Dos and Don’ts, and achieve the success you deserve. And, most importantly, network!
