“Life is about the people you meet and the things you create with them” — Holstee Are you looking for a more fulfilling job, thinking about a career change, launching a new business, or wanting to attract new business or clients? If so, one of the most critical factors to your success is building a strong and diverse network. The foundation for every job and business is engaging and building relationships with people, and networking can be the single most powerful tool you can use for accelerating your career or business, growing your impact as well as increasing happiness in your work. In today’s rapidly-changing, hyper-competitive working world, networking is vital to creating new career and business opportunities. In fact, over 70% of jobs are found through networking and 40% of job seekers say they found their dream job through a personal connection. For entrepreneurs, a strong network is a key source for new clients, partnerships, and advice. However, most people don’t like to “network” and often feel uncomfortable doing it. This is because of the common form of networking – going to events, swapping business cards, and gathering meaningless LinkedIn connections – simply doesn’t work. We need a form of networking that focuses on meaningful connections and strategic relationship building. This is what Networking with Purpose is all about. In Networking with Purpose, Marcos Salazar will share strategies, techniques, and lessons learned in building a diverse network of thousands of professionals, entrepreneurs, and creatives from every background and industry to grow Be Social Change into the largest social impact community in New York City. Marcos will show you how to build enduring, mutually beneficial relationships by providing value to others and sharing your authentic self. **SPACE IS LIMITED** *Doors open at 6:45 PM, class starts at 7:00 PM sharp* WHAT YOU’LL LEARN How to build your networking in a purposeful, authentic, and meaningful way – while having some fun during the process!
