In a world where “networking” can be seen as a dirty word, this lively and informative 2 hour masterclass offers a fresh perspective on making connections and building your network.

The ability to build connections with people is at the heart of personal and professional success, and this last year has tested our ability to maintain and nurture our networks more than ever. This seminar led by Oli Barrett will teach you the principles of building a more effective network, to help you unlock business opportunities and build success in the professional sphere.  With inspiration, exercises and practical tips, you will gain the confidence to think about your network consciously and recognise the broader value it brings.

Learning ideas and techniques which can be put into practice immediately, this masterclass will be valuable for everyone from the experienced connector to the person starting out on a new stage of their life’s journey.   

You will learn:

  • the secrets to connecting with people through “long shots”

  • the best ways to keep in touch

  • how to get more from the real-world or virtual events - even if you dread them

  • the art of making life-changing introductions

  • the benefits of being more connected to attract opportunities and make things happen

The teaching will be a mix of lecture style and live exercises, with the stories, practical exercises, tips and techniques shared in this masterclass teaching you how to build a better network, in both the virtual and real world.
