Deep Networking and Relationship Building
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

If you think networking is about schmoozing at cocktail parties or sending a flurry of LinkedIn invites to people you don't know, think again. This interactive session will feature investor and author, Kelly Hoey, as she provides innovative insights into strategies that will help you form genuine relationships and harness the power of your network to accomplish any goal, from advancing in your career to landing a coveted account to successfully attracting new clients.

The strength of Kelly's connections and networks explain how this former attorney pivoted to become a much sought after speaker, seasoned investor and published author. Her carefully crafted journey has led to appearances as a panelist on CNBC's Power Pitch as well as the honour of being named one of the "25 Smartest Women on Twitter" by Fast Company and being listed as "1 of 5 Women Changing the World of VC/Entrepreneurship" by Forbes.

The hashtags for Build Your Dream Network: #BYDN #dreamnetwork #BuildYourDreamNetwork

The first 25 people who arrive to this session will receive a free copy of her book Build Your Dream Network. If you'd like to purchase a copy of the book beforehand, you can also order it online.
