Building Your Personal Networking Plan
As women in technology, we participate in groups like WITI to build networks and find mentors to help us enhance our careers, build our businesses and empower ourselves for greater success. But some of us are shy, uncomfortable promoting ourselves or just not sure how to make the most of networking opportunities. Join WITI Houston to learn how to build your personal and professional network in an interactive learning experience led by one of Houston's business networking women gurus. This working session will teach you how to build your personal networking plan, give you some useful tips and tricks, and help you practice what you have learned in an accelerated networking roundtable.
