Intentional Networking: Soft Skills Workshop

When:  May 22, 2024 from 02:30 PM to 04:30 PM (MT)
Associated with  CFA Society Calgary

Networking is an important skill that fosters growth at every career stage, yet is often underdeveloped and overlooked. Networking can feel overwhelming at times, especially when you’re the “newbie.”

Whether you’re new to the CFA journey, a seasoned professional embarking on a new career track, entering a new industry, adapting to new ways of interacting with colleagues, or new to the city, authentic connections can enrich your life through professional growth and personal satisfaction. Develop skills and intentionality that help to build or activate your network.

This interactive 2-hour workshop showcases the value of intentional networking that doesn’t have to feel awkward or forced. Attendees will learn how to:

  • Overcome networking fears
  • Understand the benefits of networking at various career stages
  • Apply key networking strategies tailored to everyday life
  • Differentiate yourself and leave a lasting impression
  • Maintain and nurture your professional network

Participants will be invited to assess their current network and identify enhancement opportunities, strategically aligned with career goals. You will walk away prepared to cultivate genuine relationships and understand how to nurture them throughout their career.
