Networking – connect with other practitioners

Active networking is vital to your practice and career growth. It involves meeting and getting to know people who you can assist, and who can potentially help you in return. Networking:

  • is about building relationships over time to create strong industry and business connections

  • is about sharing, not taking. It is about forming trust and helping one another toward goals

  • is an excellent source of new perspectives and ideas to help you in your role.

  • can help advance your career by increasing your visibility and help you get noticed

  • can open doors to new opportunities

  • can help you learn from peers, exchange best practice knowledge, and stay abreast of the latest field developments

  • can help you gain the advice and support of experienced peers

  • can help you influence with positivity

  • can help build your confidence
