What comes to mind when you hear the word NETWORKING? Do you envision a world of opportunity or do you feel awkward just thinking about it? Are you looking for innovative ways to make connections, and ultimately make a plan to do so?
Join NEW Twin Cities for a Connect Event featuring Ebony Wyatt from her namesake brand, Ebony Wyatt Speaks LLC. Ebony is a General Mills Corporate Leader, small business owner, and creator of the “Building Your #BadAss Brand” and “Building Your #BadAss Network” seminars.
During this event, Ebony will share pro tips to Network Like a Boss, including sharing who you are, what you need from the connection and what you are trying to accomplish. We’ll help lay the groundwork for that perfect elevator speech that will roll off your tongue as soon as the opportunity presents itself!
