Networking at any type of event can seem daunting but it doesn’t have to be. Once you make the shift in your mind that networking is an act of honor and generosity, where you are seeking to add value to another party’s endeavors, you start to see how networking can be leveraged to craft fruitful and exciting alliances.

This same mindset is applied in the virtual conference environment, while accounting for and even leveraging certain technical and logistical parameters. In this webinar, we will discuss how to network at virtual conferences, and the steps you can take before, during, and after to ensure that you are strategically positioning yourself and your new collaborators for success.

We will discuss how to actually find people and start conversations during the conferences using elements of the platform, and we will address what you should do immediately following the conference to keep the conversations growing, flowing, and going.
