How to build a professional network & speed networking

With a busy schedule, networking can easily fall to the bottom of the priorities list, even though the higher up you go in your career, the more valuable your business connections become. 

In this session, designed especially for R3, you’ll receive practical guidance which you’ll be able to apply right away, on how to make the most of networking events. This will include how to plan in advance, what to say to initiate and maintain a conversation, and top tips on how to follow up. 

As a result of taking part in the session, you’ll feel more confident meeting people within the industry and comfortable having new business conversations.
