I am a true believer in networking but also believe that it should have added value.
Grant Thornton has figured that out too and created two professional networks for women.
One network met this week and was treated to a presentation about EQ by Amazing Leaders.
The premise of the evening’s lesson was emotional capital will distinguish one company from another and those leaders who have high EQ and develop that within their team will leave their competitors behind.
After performing several exercises, participating in discussions, and learning from others we were invited to network over drinks and really nice food. It was dinner time after all. I left with a few business cards, a feeling of empowerment and the knowledge that, that was time well spent.
Let’s kick off Fall with a business and social networking event designed to help you reach your goals to grow your business, find partners, launch joint ventures, start a business or make a new friend.
