net·work·ing  [net-wur-king]  noun
1. a supportive system of sharing information and services among individuals and groups having a common interest: Non-profits in the community use networking to help themselves manage more successfully.

Networking is about people openly sharing knowledge with others, with the largest obstacle to success being the “sharing” and “others” components.  We all have knowledge, but as humans we’re just not sure how to best share or receive it.

In this entertaining and interactive session you’ll receive up to one billion dollars’ worth of networking activities and tips that you’ll be able to immediately put into practice the rest of the day. Through a random window of boring lecture and harrowing activities, this session will help participants better understand what networking is and how to be comfortable doing it. Why flounder when you can fly?

We’ll talk about planning, preparation, action and follow up.  Then we’ll work through some real-life examples, play some games, practice, and send you off to conquer the world.  Or at least send you off ready to share and learn with others!
