IE Business School マスタークラス及び懇親会 3/9(金)開催

IE Business School “How networking will/can change your life.” By Entrepreneurship Professor Nazza Ciccarello

There are several important success factors in the business world of today. Some of them are common knowledge, but not all of them are given the right importance. One of the main reasons people decide to enrol into a leading business school is to enlarge their network. Unfortunately, most of these people end up with a group of mere acquaintances, rather than a network of professional connections. Networking is a key activity that needs both time and commitment in order to be effectively and efficiently organized. In this session, Prof. Nazareno Mario Ciccarello Fanfani will talk about the importance of networking and how it is the single most powerful marketing tactic to accelerate and sustain success for any individual or organization.

Take advantage of this Master Class to gain a clear overview of what networking IS and is NOT: offering an opportunity VERSUS asking a favor! The master class is followed by networking cocktail.
