What Will I Learn?

  • Distinctions between mentors and sponsors and how to develop and nurture both types of relationships to advance their own growth and career path.
  • Be empowered to position themselves as sponsor-ready for key sponsor relationships and increased visibility and opportunity.
  • Be equipped with a new mindset about networking and learn key skills to more effectively and confidently interact with others, build authentic relationships and engage in a way that adds true value.


You are always hearing how important networking and nurturing key relationships are to your career and success, but sometimes actually stepping out and doing it can be hard. Genny draws from her 17+ years of working with women to equip and empower you in this session with a new mindset about networking and building mentor and sponsor relationships to help you truly own your career path. You will walk away with new insights about finding networking opportunities that fit you, and you’ll learn key skills and “social hacks” that will help you more effectively and confidently interact with others, build authentic relationships, and stand out in a way that adds value and propels your success.
