About Webinar

The holiday season always brings a lot of activity – office holiday parties, seasonal events, neighbor get-togethers – and while the season is a time for cheer, for many the prospect of these festivities leads to nothing more than dread.

But the holidays are actually a perfect time to engage, network and build stronger business and personal relationships. So, instead of avoiding it, how do we embrace the "Season of Giving" to build relationships one holiday party at a time?

In this webinar, Rhoda Rahaii (’09), Director and Lead Consultant at Ferrazzi Greenlight, talks about the most effective ways to connect with others and advance your career during the holiday season – while still enjoying the time of year. Using principals and research from author and CEO Keith Ferrazzi’s Never Eat Alone and Who’s Got Your Back, Rhoda will discuss the most effective ways to re-frame holiday networking and will share insights on how to build an authentic network during the holiday season...and beyond.
