Thu 10Sep2020

This Zoom session looks at how networking works for freelancers, and how we can make the most of it online and in small groups.

From 10:30 until 1pm

Venue: Webinar via Zoom

Hosted by FEU Training

Now that there are fewer opportunities for face-to-face networking, it’s even more important to make sure we’re being as clear as we can be about what we have to offer our clients and customers.

This short workshop looks at basic rules of effective networking, whether online or in person.

The first section looks at:

  • what networking is really about, and why people often get it wrong
  • how to prepare for engagements with potential clients
  • getting ready for post-lockdown events - good practice for online meetings with clients.

The second section looks at:

  • what people find when they google you
  • how to polish your online profiles
  • tools to help you use social media efficiently
  • where to find out more
