Presentation Premise

We have overused, misused and abused the term “networking” to describe what is essentially the socializing that’s required when we are in any room with others.

The term “social” has been co-opted by the digerati. Now we have social media, social marketing and social networking but what does social really mean?

It’s communicating comfortably and effectively, having informal conversations while mingling face-to- face.

Connecting with people at any and every gathering, event or meeting is essential for our professional and personal lives.
