Webinar: How to create your career networking opportunities
About the webinar
In the framework of our 30th anniversary, Children Change Colombia is pleased to invite you to the online webinar "How to Create Your Career Networking Opportunities" .
This event is jointly hosted with the Anglo-Colombian Society ( and the Cambridge University Colombian Society (CUCOL).
Join our guest speaker Betty Encinales- an award-winning entrepreneur, Women in Fintech Power list recruiter and TEDx presenter on Thursday 14th October at 6:30pm via Zoom.
The relationships you build or fail to build, follow you throughout your career. Your professional contacts can be incredible advocates for you; they can give you access to new opportunities, provide a wealth of information and help you get where you want to be. Without a strong network on your side, career progress is likely to be much slower and harder.
In this session, you will learn:
- What a powerful professional relationship actually is (and what it is NOT)
- How to create authentic relationships that go beyond surface-level acquaintanceships
- Non-traditional ways of expanding your network (without attending “networking” events)
Tickets are a £5 donation to our work and can be purchased HERE
