KU Quarterly Workplace Culture Summit

Turn Traditional Networking Upside Down

Register for Free

In today’s global economy, your employees’ networks are your company’s network. Learn how to diversify your own social networks and explore practical tips for building and nurturing a meaningful, mutually beneficial professional network.

The most effective networking is often done one-on-one in your everyday interactions at work and beyond, not at high-profile events. And it doesn’t have to feel “fake” or inauthentic. In fact, authentic networking is focused on helping others. At this quarter’s KU Workplace Culture Summit, you’ll learn how to:

Increase your networking effectiveness

  • In just 15 minutes a day, leverage technology to nurture your networks over the long-term – from LinkedIn to email
  • Diversify your networks and help others do the same with research-backed practical strategies

Coach your teams to make the most of their connections

  • Build more diverse and inclusive organization-level networks
  • Discover key types of network connections – identify your own network position and how to increase your visibility and influence in your network

Leverage networking to build new business and community partnerships

  • Ask questions that spark meaningful networking conversations
  • Discuss workplace policies and practices that inadvertently inhibit effective employee networking both internally and externally
