Rethink Your Views on Networking and Learn to Forge Genuine Business Relationships

A strong network is one of our most important career and business assets. And yet, most of us relegate networking to the bottom of our to-do list. Even worse, we wait until a career emergency to hastily slap together a viable network to help us in our hour of greatest need.

If you want to pursue your dream career, networking must become a priority. But how do you know where to begin? How do you build strong relationships in an authentic way? And how do you get over your deep-seated fear of putting yourself out there?

J. Kelly Hoey, author of “Build Your Dream Network: Forging Powerful Relationships in a Hyper-Connected World,” offers a comprehensive roadmap for building a powerful network that yields real results. She’ll give you practical, actionable insights and tips that you can use right now to create a network that provides opportunities and accelerates your career.

In this class, you’ll learn how to build your network and:

  • Reach out to people with confidence.
  • Know what you want and where you’re going.
  • Map out your linear or nonlinear journey.
  • Navigate career crossroads and passionately pursue uncharted paths.
  • Find high-quality connections in every aspect of your life.
  • Act with generosity in your business relationships.
  • Be intentional about your networking—24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

    Wow! I have been connected to and following Kelly since I had the pleasure of seeing her speak live a year ago. When she posted she was doing a CreativeLive I cleared my calendar for the day and I couldn't be happier that I did! Kelly takes the 'blah blah blah' that we hear every day when it comes to career advice (whether seeking or building) and turns it into tangible, meaningful, and interactive opportunities to find what works for you, what gets responses, and teaches you how to level up. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. I loved it so much after watching the live production, (and already reading the book, and listening to the audible) I bought the class to refer back to. Let's go!

    I couldn't recommend Kelly Hoey's book and course enough! She is passionate about community building and networking and her teaching style is entertaining and extremely informative with actionable tips in my business coaching. I recommend her book to my business coaching clients all the time in my lectures at colleges and for my clients. You have only so much time, and this workshop will be an investment in your career and business you won't regret. Thank you, Kelly!

    I'm an extrovert, but the word "networking" tends to give me a squicky feeling. The concept feels kind of phony, but thanks to Kelly and her tips, I can look at networking through a new lens that will enable me to come across as more authentic, and to think of the process as genuine. I recommend this course to people who aren't the biggest fans of networking, regardless of what kind of personality they have.
