Join us on Tuesday, June 20 at Cleaver & Cork for a PRSA Speed Network event presented by Eric Morgenstern, APR, Fellow PRSA, chief executive officer of Morningstar Communications.

KC is a who-knows-who town. People prefer working with people they already know. Networking is a skill that everyone – new and seasoned professionals – can improve at and utilize all the time.

Networking is not finding a new job. Networking is not a sales call. According to Eric, networking is the establishment or strengthening of a personal relationship with no predetermined end-in-mind that will eventually be a win-win for both parties. In essence, networking is when you plant a seed, water it and hope it sprouts one day.

Eric will share 10 tips for networking success, including how to give and get – a strategy to move each conversation forward and make authentic connections. Takeaways also include strategies for asking excellent questions and being remembered (in a good way). After all, memorable first impressions hold great value.

At this event, we’ll ‘speed network’ (similar to speed dating, but in the professional sense) and walk away with tangible information about every attendee!
