Whilst there is an art to networking, the challenge is in maintaining and growing relationships that matter.
Irrespective of whether you are a student, graduate, first jobber or school leaver, being able to leverage your connections is a skill that will benefit you for life.
During this session, we will bust some networking myths, show you how to approach strangers at a networking event, help you find new contacts in unlikely places and talk about how to foster relationships that matter.

Who is generationYOU?
Over the past 3 years, generationYOU has created a thriving community of millennials: students, graduates, young professionals, school leavers and dreamers, with one thing in common >> a strong desire to unleash their potential at work (and in life)!
Our role is to facilitate the sharing of knowledge from the experienced (think managers, mentors and entrepreneurs) with Australia’s youth.
We do this through original content, events & conferences, an online digital program and also a hands-on training program.
