Networking for Introverts
March 8 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Networking. We all have to do it at some point. Do you dread small talk? Does the thought of walking into a bustling room make your palms clammy? We’re here to help. We’re pleased to host Colleen Cartwright from Matrix Theatre Company for a workshop-and-networking gathering. Using techniques from the theater world, you’ll learn how the process of preparing for a performance can help you gain the confidence to start a conversation, make small talk and work a room for contacts. Begin the evening networking on your own—making note of your approach and how you feel. Segue into an interactive workshop of tips, tricks and exercises with plenty of opportunity for questions. We’ll continue with more networking using what you learned and end with some reflection. We’ll have plenty of snacks and refreshments.
