Know To Grow:

The Fine Art of Virtual Networking
Presented by Jennefer Witter

Thursday, October 15, 2020
12 pm CDT
(10 am Pacific, 11 am Mountain, 1 pm Eastern)


You don’t need to be out-and-about to keep networking. Virtual networking – using social media as your networking platform - allows you to keep and grow your professional connections, even if you are home bound. When done strategically, it can skillfully generate your “unfair share”® of business-building connections and complement traditional networking practices. This seminar will provide step-by-step guidance on how to virtually network with impact; do’s and don’ts and provide a case history. LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook will be the platforms on which the talk will be focused. Networking is especially important for women. Studies have shown that women over 50 who lose their jobs are unlikely to be fully employed again. Of additional relevance is the fact that women have been disproportionally impacted by COVID-19, as the Wall Street Journal noted in a recent article.
