Some people are born networkers, natural schmoozers who can’t take a trip to the grocery store without collecting three new business cards between the frozen food aisle and the checkout line. Even if you don’t count yourself among the socially gifted, the art of making and keeping the right business connections can be taught.
A free workshop from the folks at the Small Business Development Center of Northern California aims to teach precisely that. Stop by Pleasant Hill City Hall Wednesday morning to learn how to (from the city's website):
• Maintain relationships with current contacts
• Stay on top of trends and community happenings
• Grow as a person
• Gain new insights and ideas
• Connect with all sorts of resources on a personal level
The workshop will cover:
• What is networking?
• Networking venues
• Principles of networking
• Networking etiquette
• Common points of interest
• Elevator pitch
• Social media
What: Networking for Small Businesses
When: Wednesday, June 27, 9 a.m. - 12 p.m.
Where: Pleasant Hill City Hall
