Facebook and Myspace wont land you a job or help you grow your business. Get back to basics and learn how to build your own personal network! Join the Oregon Entrepreneurial Network for a two-part event, exclusively for graduate students, aimed at providing you with the skills you need to build a successful network and successfully leverage your contacts.
Start with a roundtable discussion led by Bill Etheredge, a long time entrepreneur, recently retired VP of Sales for Tektronix, and currently Principal of WCE Consulting Group. Learn the ins and outs of personal networking including how to strategically build your network, how to present yourself effectively, and how to manage your contacts.
Then head over to Backspace for free entry into OEN's September Pub Talk, put your skills to the test and begin building your network by engaging with local entrepreneurs, investors and service providers.
Cost: $35 for non-members; Free for student members. If you are a student member and unsure of how to log in, please contact Larry Williams, OEN Web/IT Manager, at 503-222-2270 x 17 or [email protected] and he can take care of your registration.
