Dec. 7: Webinar to Teach How to Make Networking Fun, Productive, Less Stressful

With more than three-quarters of all business transactions involving some form of networking, the webinar, “Taking the Strange Out of Meeting Strangers,” will teach participants the basics of networking and how to make it fun and productive, not stressful.

Presented by Professional Women in Building, the webinar will be held from 2:00-3:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday, Dec. 7.

This webinar will teach participants how to develop their 30-second elevator pitch — a short summary that quickly defines their product, services or company — break into the crowd and focus on quality, not quantity.

Participants will learn how to:

  • Become comfortable in networking situations
  • Make networking enjoyable and productive
  • Identify contacts that are meaningful for you and your business


Linda Hebert, of Diversified Marketing and Communications, based in Pleasanton, Calif. — with expertise in strategic planning, design and implementation of community marketing programs and corporate branding strategies — will lead the webinar.

Participants can earn one hour of continuing education credit toward their designations.
