Registration Information
Online registration is closed.

In this workshop you will learn how to brand and pitch yourself to get the most out of any networking opportunity.  It will provide you with the tools necessary to successfully engage at the July networking event with New York Chapters of the Association for Talent Develoment (ATD), Orgnaization Development Network (ODN) and Socieity of Human REsources (SHRM).

Whether you’re marketing yourself for new job opportunities, perfecting your consultant pitch to attract clients, or just want to connect with colleagues in your current role, this workshop is for you. Create opportunities and generate interest with a powerful, concise “30 second pitch” that instantly communicates the value you bring.

The session leads will walk you through the basics of identifying your “brand,” perfecting a memorable personal pitch, and getting the most out of July’s (or any) networking opportunity. Using an action learning approach, you will rehearse your pitch with colleagues, receive objective feedback from our panel speakers, and tweak your pitch before swapping places with your colleague. Sort of a "speed dating" approach to pitch practice. In the process, you will get to network with others in attendance.

If you have a pitch already prepared, feel free to bring it -- otherwise, you can craft one during the workshop (bring something to write with).
