Overview: Face-To-Face & The Digital World™
With Gayle Hallgren-Rezac & Judy Thomson
“There’s a temptation in our networked age to think that ideas can be developed by e-mail and iChat”… That’s crazy. Creativity comes from spontaneous meetings, from random discussions.” It is ironic that Steve Jobs, creator of the ubiquitous iPhone, believed in the power of face-to-face connecting. In-person connecting builds trust and rapport and often allows us to find solutions that numerous back and forth emails cannot accomplish. But the digital world (email, texts, tweets, social networks) is an essential part of effective networking today. Done right it makes networking and staying connected even easier. This session gives you tips on both!
If building high-trust relationships with customers, clients or members is your mandate, this session will give people the best ways to develop meaningful relationships and then maintain them! This session also gives tips on how to strengthen relationships using LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and other social networks and apps. Led by two of Canada’s top networking experts and co-authors of Work The Pond!, Gayle Hallgren-Rezac and Judy Thomson, Face-to-Face & The Digital World is the perfect networking skills session for today’s work environment.
