As the largest regional chamber of commerce in WNY, we bring approximately 4,500 people together each year via an unprecedented number of events, meetings, and workshops. Designed to facilitate networking opportunities, encourage business development, support professional development, and drive business advocacy, there is a BNP event for every member of your organization. 

2024 BN360: Networking for Task Focused People

Tuesday, February 27, 2024 (12:00 PM - 1:00 PM) (EST)

Description

Networking for Task-Focused People

Do you want to be more comfortable at networking events?  

Do you want to brush up on your networking skills after the isolation of the past few years?

According to CNBC, "up to 70% of all jobs are not published on publicly available job search sites, and research has long shown that anywhere from half to upwards of 80% of jobs are filled through networking." 

This 45-minute interactive session will give you tips for planning, attending, and following up on business-related events. There will also be time for questions during the last 15 minutes of our hour together.
