If you are looking for a new job or simply want to expand your contacts, everyone repeatedly tells you to “network, network, network!” But it’s not enough to just sign up for a meet-and-mingle networking event in your field and hope for the best.
Networking is about much more than simply showing up, grabbing some free snacks, and passing out business cards. It’s about meeting people, sharing who you are and what you do, and gaining some valuable contacts and information that you can use in your job search or at work in the future.
Knowing how to make the most of it takes a little preparation and practice and that’s where networking expert Catherine Thomas comes in. Catherine is a Govenor at LEH and co-founder of Brand Love, a brand and businesses strategy consultancy.
She has worked in marketing, PR and communications for over 20 years, across retail, beauty, fashion and luxury brands, real estate and investment management in the UK, Europe and Middle East. Brands she has worked with include Charlotte Tilbury Beauty, Debenhams, Jaeger and Sainsbury’s.
So, if anyone knows how to work a room, it’s Catherine. Join her for some invaluable insights at Le Petit Salon, Balthazar Restaurant, 4-6 Russell St, Covent Garden, London WC2B 5HZ, after work on Monday 4 May 2020.
