You’ve heard that this business is about “networking” and “relationships.” But what does that mean? How do we actually build those? How can we use social media rather than be used by it? Learn how to create genuine, authentic relationships, on- and offline. You will come away with guidelines to step beyond the anxiety, confusion and intimidation produced by social media, and unlock the power of authentic relationships in your life and career.
