Networking. It's dreaded, it's hated, it's not always fun. Fear not though! We've got a post coming later this week on how to make it 100x more fun, and to test out your new skills, here's 5 local events and tools you can use for growing your network.
(With today being International Women's Day, the majority of these events come from companies run by women, are targeted for women, or include a panel of women only speakers.)
MARCH 8TH/15TH/22ND: Rock Your Business Plan
Get the support of Futurpreneur while you hash out your business plan. The best bit about workshops? Meeting people in the exact same situation as you, in a much more relaxed and informal fashion. Rock that network and gain skills at the same time!
MARCH 23RD: Improve your public speaking skills
Here in the office at the end of the month, YWIB is hosting an event to discuss public speaking - something that can be applied to those networking events you're planning on attending! Get your presentation and speaking skills down with an intimate workshop taught by Genicca Whitney.
MARCH 27TH: Grow your personal brand
Attend an event that focus on growing your personal brand, and meet likeminded people while you're at it! Vancity Business Babes has an event just for that on March 27th. Reserve your spot here and head downtown to surround yourself with powerful women!
MARCH 30TH: Women in Tech
A panel discussion with women from companies such as Slack, Saje, Hootsuite and more. This panel profiles some of the leading ladies in tech. They'll be sharing personal experiences, advice and how they achieved their career successes.
