Virtual Fall Leadshare Luncheon: Networking Basics for a Virtual World

One effect of the 2020 pandemic has been a huge disruption in how we network. As in person events were cancelled we faced a new networking reality. Meetings shifted online and Zoom rooms replaced meeting rooms. While this change allows us to continue to connect, it does present challenges and questions about how to effectively network in a virtual environment.

In this interactive talk Eric Byrd, SBDC Manager, will share some simple and effective ways to get the most out of online networking. Eric has been coaching professional networking for over 10 years and will help you get ‘back to basics’ using new technology. You will leave the session with 5 Top Tips to help you stay connected with your existing network and 3 Simple Steps to keep building your network for your business.
