How to Not Hate Networking

November 7, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

How to Not Hate Networking is a practical and lighthearted seminar targeted to the design/build professional that reminds us that it’s not what we know, it’s who we know.  Anita takes the audience through a discussion on why so many of us hate networking and why we shouldn’t, then reviews different networking avenues and the benefits of each.  Participants will leave with a list of specific suggestions; including tips for introverts and extroverts, ideas for one-on-one networking and the importance of follow-up. 

Speaker: Anita Erickson, CEO STILE Studio
Anita is an entrepreneur with a passion for connecting people.  After a 20-year career in marketing she founded the Red Chair Workroom, the first-ever co-working space dedicated to the design/build industry.  Her latest venture, STILE Studio was created to support, connect and inspire design/build/real estate professionals in Austin, and to promote Austin as a world-class design destination.  Well-known in the industry in Austin, Anita wants to help everyone learn to embrace networking as a way to increase business profitability and personal satisfaction.
