- Networking is the art and science of building quality relationships. Now, when you go to these careers event or industry events or networking events, it's really important that you're building quality relationships with people that could really impact your career. Now, often they'll be lovely and you'll have a really good time, but you have to remember that they're busy, okay. They're going to be busy. They've got short attention spans, and sometimes they can be a little bit selfish. So we need to make sure that you really, really communicate your value to them and you grab their attention. So this is what this course is going to cover. We're going to understand the psychology of building relationships. We're going to understand the employer, client and how they react to a sale, understand what is needed to make a real impact when networking offline, and in conclusion, we're going to stand out for all the right reasons. We will do this by showing you how to understand the product you are selling, and that's you. We call this developing your personal brand. We want you to look and act confident, body language and handshakes, so important. Confidently answer the question, "So what do you do?" This is your elevator pitch. Develop you social and emotional intelligence. Make a real connection. We will also give you advice on what to do and what not to do at these events to make sure that you leave a good impression. Although this course focuses on what to do in actual networking events, so specific events, you have to remember that networking happens all the time. It can happen anywhere, in the most randomest places. Could be at a wedding, at a train station, at a party, you just don't know. I met somebody on an aeroplane that became a very, very big influencer in my career. What we're going to do today is we're going to really teach you how to use all of those skills in any situation to make sure that you build quality relationships and leave a lasting impression.
