Network Like a Boss

Karen Milliner, Professional Networker, Speaker, Coach and Body
Language Specialist, Professional Networking Services, LLC

Developing an intentional communication strategy isn't always a priority. We think about it when we are going to specific events; but, are you challenging yourself to be effective all the time? Networking is a full time, 24/7, effort. Become more aware of your communication style and how to improve not only your message but your corresponding body language as well. In this session you will take away the key components of neurolinguistics and how it can be specifically utilized in not only your professional but personal networking efforts, understand the semantics of word choices and their uses and learn the art of knowing when to talk and when to learn from others.
