Course overview

When you have a million and one things on your to-do list already, preparing anything in advance can seem like an extra chore you just don’t have time for. It can be tempting to leave things to chance. But, even if you’re pretty good at thinking of things on the spur of the moment, when you’re networking, taking time to prepare will make a big difference.
