Online Networking (Anti-Sell Style) | Cardiff Met Centre for Entrepreneurship Webinar

Baixar para ler offline

On Wednesday 22nd April I was the guest on a webinar hosted by Cardiff Metropolitan University's Centre for Entreprenurship.* In this version of my Anti-Sell talk, I focused on giving online networking tips, especially in light of the Coronavirus/COVID-19 and therefore the fact that the lockdown has put a hold on offline/face-to-face networking opportunities.

* The original plan was to run a networking workshop for Cardiff Met students - at their Cardiff Llandaff campaus - in mid-March, but it was inevitably postponed due to the lockdown.
