"Networking 101" Workshop Presented by Corporate Wingman, LLC

Networking is not an event; it is a process in which you never know which contact will take you to your goal. There is really no secret to building your network of contacts. There are a lot of resources out there giving tips and tricks on building business networks and expanding your realm of influence, but there are some basic principles to follow that can have a significant impact on how successful networking events and strategies are. 

There is a certain 'art and science' to networking. If you are a business owner or a salesperson, it is imperative to learn how to network effectively; your financial success may depend on it! You don't have to be a natural-born extrovert or even an expert in your field to be able to approach a stranger and make a connection! 

This workshop was presented in May, but we have had MANY members request for the same workshop to done again. Kelly Jan of Corporate Wingman, LLC will walk through the basics of how to network more effectively. Learn tips regarding choosing the right events, what to wear, rules about food/drink, approaching a crowd and more. Once you learn, practice and eventually master a few basic techniques, you will realize networking can be fun and even very profitable! Stop wasting valuable time and money by attending events and walking away with nothing. 

The Business Education Program is free to GRCC Members and a $10 fee for non-members. Space is limited and breakfast will be provided.

To register you must call the Chamber office directly by dialing 703.707.9045.

About the Speaker:
Kelly Jan
Chief Marketing Officer
CG Marketing |

Many people call Kelly Jan a “master networker.” As an active member of the Greater Reston Chamber of Commerce for over three years, she has been involved in multiple lead roles of committees and Leadshare and also serves on the Board of Directors. At home her involvement includes everything from her home owners board to volunteering as the marketing director at a local not for profit golf club. Kelly has found that if she helps others succeed, in turn, she succeeds.

Kelly figured out that by asking “how can I help you?” instead of “how can I help myself?” she was able to build a referral network that increases her business on a daily basis. Recently, when asked what her favorite part of her “job” was, Kelly answered “connecting others.” With the help of her husband Andy, Kelly was able to form her newest venture, Corporate Wingman. Kelly is now able to assist small business owners and large corporations in growing their business through networking.
