Often thought of as a 'natural' skill, many of us struggle every day to make connection, lasting business relationships and need to be reminded that we are all a little awkward some days. Have a real-time discussion on keys to overcome some anxieties, tips to be open for that next relationship and being a voice to tell your story while also connecting with others' stories. Interaction HIGHLY encouraged!
