Networking events can sometimes be the worst, even for the most extroverted among us. Who do you talk to first? Where do you stand? Do you have to have business cards? What if you don't have a straight-forward answer to the dreaded question, "what do you do?"
Networking doesn't have to be a necessary evil, when done right it can actually be - gasp! - fun. Mastering how to network like a pro (without feeling like a slimeball) is one of the most important things you can do not only for your career but for your personal life as well.
From knowing how to start a conversation with a stranger to understanding how to effectively explain who you are and what you're all about without having a mini panic attack, you'll pick up a few solid networking skills and then immediately put them into practice with other awesome people just like you. Led by Baily Hancock, professional friend-maker and collaborator extraordinaire, this mini talk/mixer will leave you feeling ready to take on any room of people and start networking your way to a better life.
