Recap: Putting together what we’ve covered so far:

In Module 1 we covered the #1 secret to great networking: Be Yourself. We also covered some of the principles behind why this is important and have referred back to this idea throughout the course so far.

In Module 2 we covered the #2 secret: Help Others First and why that is important. We also covered some of the Do’s and Don’ts of Networking, looked at two presentations which mainly covered some of the experiences of networking when it is not done effectively, then looking more at the Do’s and Don’ts what we should do instead with some interaction via this exercise invited via email.

In Module 3 we looked back again at the Do’s and Don’ts (particularly to make sure you got all of the material in case you didn’t do the interactive exercise) and a little more at Networking events and what to do instead. The what to do instead part is secret #3: See Every Interaction As A Networking Opportunity.

That is a good amount of content to cover how, why and where to network, with plenty of exercises and analysis to help you in that regard.

This final module is all about how to manage your network going forwards now that you have the skills and confidence to network effectively.

Before we cover managing your network, here is a brief talk about what we’ve covered so far:
