BAWiP | Networking for People Who Hate Networking

Hosted/Organized by: Bay Area Women in Publishing

Would you rather get a root canal than face a group of strangers? Does the phrase “working a room” make you want to retreat to yours?

Devora Zack, an avowed introvert and successful consultant who gives presentations to thousands of people at dozens of events annually, feels your pain.

At our next BAWiP event, we are lucky to have Devora share her wisdom around “Networking for People Who Hate Networking.” At this dynamic event, Devora will smash to tiny fragments the “dusty old rules” of standard networking advice. She will show how the very traits that make many people hate networking can be harnessed to forge an approach more effective and user-friendly than traditional techniques. Participants will learn customized methods of networking to fit their unique personalities.

Networking enables you to accomplish the goals that are most important to you. But you can’t adopt a style that goes against who you are—and you don’t have to. As Zack writes, “You do not succeed by denying your natural temperament; you succeed by working with your strengths.”

Don’t miss out on this eye-opening, impactful, and upbeat event! Infused with practical tips, the interactive format integrates diverse techniques with live time networking among participants.

**All attendees will receive a FREE autographed copy of the international bestseller Networking for People Who Hate Networking, 2nd Edition by Devora Zack (translated into 15 languages), including a self-assessment to help you understand your own temperament.**
