Networking 101 | July Education Event

  • Windsor Heights Community Center 6900 School Street Windsor Heights, IA, 50324 United States (map)

We're all networking all the time.  You do it in your workout class, while you’re grabbing a coffee and when you’re waiting for the bus.  Those who make it look effortless translate that casual attitude to their network and networking events.   

Join CREW Iowa and iaWia as we co-host "Networking 101" with Danny Beyer.  This fun and interactive luncheon will show how easy it is to network no matter how comfortable, or uncomfortable, you are with it.  Learn how to get through boring small talk and build relationships that will result in both professional and personal success; Find how easy it is to get out of bad conversations; Become conscious of the network you have and use simple strategies to utilize that network better.
