Networking for the Young Professional

Join us for this year’s Emerging Leaders Series focused on Networking: Building Your Core Business. Our spring session will focus on learning more about your own networking/communication styles through completing the TriMetrix DNA Assessment followed by a session to interpret how your results impact your ability to network with others.
