The Power Of Networking In A Post COVID World
As we, hopefully, exit from the health crisis of COVID19 we will enter a jobs crisis and companies will be reconfiguring their staff structures and individuals will have to reconsider their career options. There will be considerable disruption and turbulence but also opportunity. In all of this your network will be critical. But networking is not taught at school or college and companies don’t have strategies for it. Kingsley will share The Networking Institute’s precise 4 step process on how to build a strong and diverse network and the attitude changes, alterations in behaviour and new skills that will be needed to do this successfully.
Having lived and worked in 6 countries over 25 years Kingsley has came to appreciate the importance of networking but it was a learned experience and not something he was good at when younger. As his career progressed, the qualities needed to get a job in the first instance became less important and relationships became more important. Kingsley will share his insights and appreciation that networking is about ‘giving not getting’ and that opportunities don’t hang around on clouds – they are attached to people. Join this session as Kingsley illustrates the relationship between the greatest skill in networking and serendipity. Are there any advantages to COVID19? You will be not be disappointed with the take-aways – what will online connections bring in 2021 – more time, energy, money and less carbon footprint through virtual networking?
