05/29/2020 - Making the Most of Networking Opportunities
Heather Hollick was our presenter for our May Chaptering meeting via webinar. Heather is a speaker, writer and coach. Heather defines a network as connections and links between people, networking as building and nurturing relationships in meaningful ways and the combination of all the relationships in your life as defined by the freshness and strength of those relationship. Anything that freshens or strengthens a relationship for you is networking. Strengthening is the constant exchange of favors and information. Most of us think of networking as attending a conference or meeting, attending events or meeting new people. There is also the myth that extroverts are better networkers. Heather shared with us some of the differences between an introvert and an extrovert. Introverts are oriented “inward” and their stimulation comes from inside or introspection. An introvert often needs time to think in order to formulate their thoughts; not necessarily “talk it out”. An extrovert is oriented “outward” and their stimulation comes from outside or external sources. Extroverts often need to verbalize their thoughts to formulate them. Heather believes that the most powerful question you can ask when networking is, “What are you working on” and not, “What do you do?”. Asking a person what they are working on opens up a bigger dialogue and may include what they do for a living, but doesn’t limit the conversation. Heather’s presentation was very interesting and the time flew by! If you are interested in more information on Heather or wish to participate in a workshop, please go to
