The whole world looks familiar but feels very different for us all. A lot has happened the last couple of years that both affects our existing networks and our ability to build a network. Many of us are new in our jobs, new to Central Oregon, or have a new working environment all together. So many of us find networking and making connections awkward, but even if you are an extrovert, this year of social distancing has our people skills feeling rusty. We have also experienced collective stress, grieving, and isolation.
How can we effectively connect given all this?
Come spend an hour with Julie Harrelson, Managing Director at Cascade Seed Fund to have a refreshing conversation about networking. Our YP crowd has not stopped talking about Julie’s incredible networking session in 2019 (I think someone even networked their way into a new couch?).
It is high time we have her back to help us ease back into our lives and networks as we move (slowly) out of the pandemic world.
