Love it or hate it, virtual networking is here to stay. If you’re a business owner, networking is critical to growing your business; in fact, 73% of women entrepreneurs we surveyed say access to new networks is essential to their success.
Virtual networking can be an effective way to save time and reach new markets. So how do you ensure you make valuable connections without feeling like a salesperson?

Meet the Panelists
After a successful career in the world of IT, a little over 10 years ago, Sue took the leap and left her corporate job to follow her passion and train to become a professional life coach. Accredited through the International Coach Federation at the PCC level, Sue now specialises in helping others make inspired professional and personal transitions.
One of the biggest challenges Sue faced as a new business owner was learning to overcome her resistance and become a proficient networker. She joined networking groups and gradually reframed her view of networking and became much more comfortable with it.
Over time, Sue learned to love networking, although she realised it was still something that was challenging for many people. She decided to do something to help them. Her Networking for Success workshop was originally developed to help newcomers to Victoria integrate into the city, make friends and find work. Soon her coaching clients in career transition were clamouring for access to this material too. Since then, hundreds of people have completed her course and found a speedy path to becoming more confident and proficient at networking.
Sue is now a passionate advocate for the need for everyone to build a strong and supportive network as she believes it can transform both your personal and professional life.
