Virtual Seminar: Networking in the New Virtual World

We are delighted to have invited Ms Suman Balani, a senior executive with 30 years of leadership experience in Payments, Technology, and Healthcare services for an event for the Women @ ACI Singapore. Suman will be speaking about NETWORKING IN THE NEW VIRTUAL WORLD that is very relevant post covid-19 where face to face interaction is limited.

Program Synopsis

We have been constantly reminded to build our social capital and networks of influence to build resiliency in our careers.  Connecting with new people has always required some effort for many of us, more so the introverts amongst us.

In our previous world, more often than not, it was those chance social face-to-face encounters that made it easier and served as fertile ground to connect and grow your wider circle of influence.

The world has since changed - those social opportunities that were open to us, are now no longer possible. The question is, how do you network in the current virtual world? Suman challenges us to change the way we look at networking in the new normal and offers tips and ideas of doing it completely differently and in a way that can be even more impactful.

The event details as follows:

Date :              Thursday, 12 November 2020

Time :             6.30pm - 8.00pm

How would you benefit from the session?

  • Reframe your mindset on networking and begin to see it as an intrinsic and essential part of your professional life.
  • Understand the importance of networking for building a resilient career
  • Gain new insights, best practices and tips on ways to better grow your network, especially in this virtual world.
