Networking: how to make your ask a give

20 Oct 2022
6:00pm - 9:00pm BST

Many believe they are great at building relationships but when it comes time to make an “ask", whatever that ask may be, they often fall short. Not being able to ask for that opportunity or introduction, or ask to represent a client, go on a pitch or be considered for a promotion, leadership role or increased compensation, can significantly impede your success.

At this event, join Debbie Epstein Henry as she takes you through how to master the art of the ask, whether in-person, hybrid or virtual. The trick? Listen and get to know a person’s needs, interests and challenges. Rather than frame your ask as a favour, you will learn how you can be a resource. You will leave armed with action steps and inspiration to provide value while learning to ask for what will propel yours, as well as your colleagues’ and clients’ , careers forward.
