Join The Circle on Tues 14 May for a very special free workshop exclusively for women!

You’re invited to a networking event.

What’s your first reaction? …. Exactly!

Networking is necessary for our business and career success, yet few people look forward to it or do it naturally. People who are too keen to sell themselves end up looking desperate or slimy.

In this workshop we will look at practical, professional and ethical techniques to network. The trick is not to think about it as selling,but as meeting interesting people and spreading good karma. It will come back to you!

Date: Tues 14 May
Time: 6 – 9pm
Location: Amnesty International 17-25 New Inn Yard EC2A 3EA London GB (map)
