Do you want to see more results from your networking efforts?

Then Join ICF-NJ on February 23rd for
Networking 101 – The Class You Never Took in College”

Like a lot of things we have learned in life, we’ve learned by experience, by trial and error. Learning that way can be very valuable. But, it’s often the long road to take. In today’s “go go go” world, we can’t afford the time to learn by trial and error. Mistakes teach valuable lessons but can be costly.

Networking no longer means something you do with computers. Networking is how the world gets things done, whether it’s to find a dentist, a new job, someone to paint the house, or to secure new business. To be successful at it, we need to know the basics, learn the rules, and do it right from the beginning.

We need a class and we need a coach! So we’re going to have a crash course in Networking 101. Those who attend will leave with a suggested reading list and some tools to begin the process of becoming a Master of Networking.
