Join us for this webinar to hear from a range of speakers and their top tips.



Entering a room full of strangers can feel daunting at the best of times. The thought of then navigating that room in order to make new contacts and spot future business opportunities can send some people into a cold sweat  - and yet others make it look so easy. What's their secret?


Join us online for a high-energy, interactive, online panel discussion as we use 90 minutes of our lock down time to fine tune our networking skills. We'll explore the ways in which our speakers network: how do they successfully navigate crowded rooms in order to build - and strengthen - new business relationships? 


We'll aim to answer the following questions and more:

  • What's the secret to getting a complete stranger to want to talk to you for more than 30 seconds when there's a room full of acquaintances all vying for their attention? 
  • How do you join a huddled conversation that's already in full swing?
  • What do you do when you've forgotten the name of the person you're about to introduce to a colleague? 
  • What are the dos and don'ts of successful networking?
  • What are your top tips when organising a networking event?


We are joined by a fantastic panel to answer these questions:

  • Dawn Hallybone, Education Consultant, 2Simple (Chair)
  • Amanda Duncan, Founder, Scribeasy
  • Nina Iles, Head of EdTech, BESA
  • Remi Toyobo, Head of New Business, Bett UK
  • Jessica White, Senior Consultant, Eduvation
  • Bukky Yusuf, Senior Leader and Science Lead, Edith Kay School


You will be sent a link to join this webinar a few days before the event.
