Lunch and Learn!

We all have stories we like to tell ourselves about what we can/cannot do. Nowhere do the stories get louder or more untrue than when we start talking about networking. The “I cannot” and “that’s not for me” stories run rampant and ruin our professional relationship-building opportunities in the process. Adding to the angst is that, unfortunately, there are many professionals and business owners who have not properly nurtured their networks to leverage them effectively in times like these.

In this session, authentic networking strategist Patricia V. Hayes will help you face the networking myths that are negatively impacting your confidence and your professional/ business growth. Using 30 years of professional expertise gathered as an attorney, registered lobbyist, and an executive in large statewide organizations who have established major strategic partnerships and collaborations, Patricia guides you in the importance of creating professional relationships that last and how being authentically you builds networking confidence.
