“Relationship building, when done right, is the cornerstone for long-term opportunity,” states Dorie Clark in this Harvard Business Review article. Since the pandemic began, networking has been more difficult than ever. For the shy introvert, zoom networking could have been a blessing, but overtime when we were beginning to get burned out by too many blue screens and too much zoom – networking just felt harder than ever.
Since the majority of places have returned to some semblance of normal with social distancing and vaccinations, it’s a great time to stretch your networking skills with these upcoming events.
