Friends Who Are Going
Event description

Description

This interactive workshop will be led by Marsha Shandur, founder of Yes Yes Marsha and will include exercises to help you shift your mindset and ENJOY networking. Marsha Shandur is a Networking Mentor - which is a fancy way of saying she helps grown-ups make friends. She shows people how to build meaningful business and work connections that move their career forward faster - and that feel like real friendships...because they are. This seminar will also focus on the following topics:

  • how to walk up to a stranger at an event (and know what to say)
  • how to remember people's names
  • the best question to ask someone you've just met
  • how to keep the conversation going
  • eye contact and physicality
  • how to say goodbye in a way to foster further contact (and why that's so important!)

This event is part of BioLinc's Kick-Starting Entrepreneurship program and is open for Niagara youth ages 18-29 to attend.

Marsha Shandur is also a Storytelling Coach. As the organiser, curator, host of, and story coach for True Stories Told Live, Toronto's biggest storytelling show, she has coached over 70 storytellers, taking their personal stories from a confused mess to a compelling stage or video piece. She herself has told stories at everywhere from The Toronto Storytelling Festival to Portland's WorldDomination Summit - to a live audience of 3,000 people.

Throughout her career as an event organiser, radio host, podcaster, author for Bloomsbury Publishing, music supervisor for hit TV shows (like The Inbetweeners), and the kind of person who does things like running solo marathons, she has featured on Forbes, the BBC, CBC, The Art of Charm and Mashable.
