Strengthening your network is essential no matter where you are in your career. This can be a daunting skill to hone as it takes initiative, time, and finding an approach that works best for you and your goals. There are different approaches for various career levels, as well as different approaches for online networking versus in-person networking events, like here at The Diana Initiative.</p> <p>Each speaker will share a story about one way networking has impacted them. Each speaker is at a different place in her career. Two of the speakers have pivoted to cybersecurity within the last five years and one is in a senior leadership role. After the three speakers share some of their stories and how networking impacted them, they will discuss specific Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures (TTPs) of effective networking for both in-person and virtual interactions. Additionally, strategies around what to do next after networking, how to balance, and how to say no to requests will be discussed. Finally, the speakers will close with a group structured workshop where there will be time to practice the learnings from the talk.
