Every time. Understand how to become embedded in a network quickly and how to maximise return on investment with every membership. In addition, learn etiquette and productivity rules such as how to enter and leave conversations, how to read people, how to progress past the event and when you do, who pays for coffee?

You will be a VIP at the 24/7 LinkedIn networking party where you are the star attraction.
