Event Description

Welcome to the next series of the Community Business Workshop!

About the workshop:

Finding the right connections can prove to be exhausting and maybe overwhelming. However, if we pay close attention, we realize that we are making connections every day. Whether it is taking a stroll in the park or getting a cup of coffee, we will most likely run into someone and start a conversation. At this workshop, you’ll learn tips to networking with the goal of creating meaningful connections whether it’s a professional or personal setting. We will discuss types of networking and where to find opportunities to socialize.
