Ignite curiosity and inspire action

Are you feeling disconnected from others? Having a hard time to connect with the people you need to connect with?

The ability to build and maintain effective social networks is one of the most useful skills you can master during your studies. Networking skills can not only help you find your desired career, but also potential business partners, or friends.

In the Networking Masterclass, you will further explore this skill, and will be expected to attend two networking events, to apply what you’ve learned.
In this masterclass you will: create a personal networking action plan, lead an effective networking conversation, maintain and utilize your network, develop a strong personal brand.

Session 1: You and networking

In this introductory class, you will explore how networking can be beneficial for you and analyze your current strengths and weaknesses when it comes to networking and develop an action plan of what and how you want to improve. Furthermore, you will learn about different networking opportunities in Rotterdam, and you will be asked to attend one of them in between the masterclasses

Session 2: Networking Conversations

We all struggle with starting or joining the conversation or transitioning from seemingly endless small talk to productive conversation. In this session, you will practice initiating, maintaining, and closing networking conversations. Additionally, you will develop a short personal pitch, so you know how to effectively answer the questions like “what do you do?”.

Session 3: Personal brand and network

How can you utilize and maintain your current network? In this session, you will learn how to create and communicate a personal brand on social media via interaction and content creation. Moreover, you will explore how to utilize networking skills to create and maintain connections for the future.

Maria Francesca Burger       

Is a student of the international bachelor economics and business economics program. A multicultural background in German, Romanian and Dutch has permitted her to not only learn many languages but also connect with a variety of people. Being a co-founder of CAN Rotterdam, she started establishing well-known networking events. The ability to network, maintain connections and turn to people with whom she can grow has fascinated her and got her into several internships like at PwC. Currently, she is also looking into a self-made system of accountability partners with whom she forms alliances to grow.
