Networking has taken on a new form these days, but the effort is more important than ever before. Leaving the networking research and connections up to your EA is the best way to make those connections happen in an Executive’s busy schedule.
Current circumstances surrounding the global pandemic have changed the landscape of connecting with others because of the new limited ability to travel, whether it’s downtown or to another state. Technological advances have now given Executive Assistants ways to conduct networking through Virtual Networking Events, resulting in an even more preferable medium to many.
Participating in these events is beneficial to the Assistant in many ways, instilling confidence in the value of their role. Executives will benefit from the connections the Assistant makes, opening doors to new business relationships – vendors, potential customers/clients, peers and business partners. So how do you take the first step into the virtual networking world?
