Description

Although everybody knows how important networking is, not everyone has an easy time doing it. But charisma, soft skills and communication are skills that you can develop even if you’re introverted or shy. That’s what we do in this course!

If you want to find more contacts, clients or friends as well as build / expand your network, but if you’re not exactly a super sociable extrovert, this course is for you! Here you will learn simple methods and tips & tricks that you can easily use at networking events. This will help you meet new people, show your personality and charisma in the best light and build real, long-term relationships.

Keywords: Networking; Business Networking; Communication Skills ; Soft Skills ; Making Contacts ; Nonverbal Communication ; Charisma ; Introverts ; Winning Clients ; Making Friends ; Meeting New People ; Social Anxiety ; Social Skills ; Networking Events ; Building Relationships ; Business Relationships ; Maintaining Relationships

You will learn

After you’ve completed the video course, it’s time to apply everything you learned. The class project consists of two parts. 

You can do the first part in front of your computer. Visit event platforms and find at least 12 events taking place in your area in the next 3 weeks. The events should be relevant to you – either because you want to meet new people from that specific industry / subculture or simply because they might be fun.
Write all the events down with the corresponding dates and times.

Now it’s time to choose which ones you will attend. Make sure to attend at least 2 events per week. When choosing the events you will attend, keep in mind what we learned in the video course: The types of relationships you build will often depend on the types of events you attend. Put these events into your calendar.

Now it’s time to get down to real work. The second part of the project is attending the events you chose and putting everything you learned into practice. Approach at least 3 different people or groups at each event. You don’t have to exchange contact data with everyone. Prioritize quality, meaningful conversations and real relationships over mere quantity. However, make sure to approach at least 3 people or groups at every event in order to stay active and (if necessary) keep pushing yourself out of your comfort zone.

After you’ve attended 6 different events and approached and had conversations with 3 different people/groups at each event, you have completed the project!

If you wish, you can take photos of yourself and the people you meet at the events. Upload the photos to share your progress and motivate other students in this class!

You can also write about how you felt during the events as well as how you overcame any unpleasant social anxiety to show others they are not alone and encourage them.

Have fun!
