July’s Young MCA event was a fun and interactive session which provided attendees with an opportunity to develop their approach and style to networking.
The session was delivered by Lee Warren– a corporate trainer for over 10 years and one of the UK’s most popular magicians.
Lee provided insight into the breadth of attributes which make a successful networker, in addition to the networking pitfalls that many of us fall into. He reminded us to think about our own ‘Personal Brand’ when interacting at events.
There is always an opportunity to develop your networking skills whether in a professional or personal capacity. From a development perspective, the key is to think about how networking supports both your own development and the development of your organisation (e.g. with clients).
