    Holidays are one of the best times to network because they tend to be the times that we are most social.  The parties and events you attend are filled with people with whom you have something in common—a family member, a friend, a work connection.  This also means they are filled with people who are equipped to help you make a change.  You need to be equipped to enable them to be helpful to you.  This involves having your messaging about what you are looking for ready, ideas for what will be helpful, and a willingness to ask for their help!  

    Takeaways will include:
    •    Outlines and practice messaging.
    •    Ideas for re-framing networking in ways that make it more interesting and fun.
    •    Practical tips about how holiday networking can be reciprocal.
