Joan Gillman is widely known not only in the Madison area, but internationally as a business advocate. We are enthusiastic that she will be joining us at the third and final presenter of this year's American Marketing Association's Career Development Breakfast Series.
Networking is not about "schmoozing" and handing out business cards to everyone! It's an art, and learning how to master it will boost you to new heights!
Networking offers one of the best ways of finding leads for new business and a valuable component of career advancement. You want to be viewed as a resource for business development advice and a source of leads to career or business opportunities.
In this third and final session, Joan will teach us about the secrets of achieving networking success and how to use them!
