Event description

Description

I HATE NETWORKING is a surprisingly fun event designed to encourage creative people to get to know each other, while also acknowledging the horror that is networking, and sharing a few tips at the same time.

Networking is a vital skill if you work in the creative industries, but many practitioners also consider it to be the stuff of nightmares. Sweaty palmed posers all trying to out-do each other in the bragging department? NO THANK YOU!

I HATE NETWORKING is an event that combines the educational elements of learning how to network with an opportunity to practice the skills in a safe and friendly environment, all the while embracing the discomfort of the whole process and having a laugh.

Tips that will be shared include:
• Mastering the art of the introduction
• Overcoming shyness, awkwardness and the urge to run away
• Dealing with wankers and other difficult people
• Getting the follow-up right
• Choosing the best networking events
• The all important follow-up!

You'll learn how to network, and then practice your new skills while enjoying some tasty canapés and a drink.

Who should attend?
Come along if you’re a creative practitioner, and/or in an arts businesses of any size. You could be a freelancer, a soloist or from a larger organisations looking to expand your networks. You should also attend if you hate networking, but you know it’s a skill you need to learn.

What do I get? All participants of this workshop also receive:

  • Printed materials to help in class;
  • Lifetime access to a dedicated I Hate Networking dropbox folder full of additional resources and help;
  • The chance to meet other local people just like you.

The workshop is relaxed and informal, you can ask all the questions you’ve never been able to ask before, and participants will also be given ample opportunity to meet other creatives just like you!

You also get free advice! All NSW participants are entitled to 4 x 1 hour CHAT sessions, with a creative industries business advisor, 100% subsidised by Business Connect and therefore at no cost to you (no, there’s no catch!).
