Improve Your Networking Skills

The Garden State Woman Education Foundation (GSWEF) has developed a novel approach to breaking down resistence to networking.  Hosted by  Judy Chapman, Founder of Garden State Woman, veteran networker Jack Killion shared tips on how he approaches networking.  The workshop was held at the Park Avenue Club in Florham Park.

The purpose of the workshop, attended by corporate as well as individual business people, was to stimulate the thinking of the participants on innovative ways to use networking opportunities to enhance their professional as well as private lives. The two hour morning session was the latest education program offered by the GSWEF.  Participants were invited to send in their expectations for the event beforehand. The interactive program was tailored for the attendees which included a job seeking MBA graduate; one of the scholarship recipients from Garden State Women; as well as a variety of others with specific goals and objectives.  

Comments from the group: ...take a chance, you never know...if you don't plan it, it won't open to new opportunities...get out of your comfort zone...don't be afraid of cold calls...always follow can I help you.
