Public Course: Networking and relationship building

We all know that the construction industry thrives on sustainable personal relationships, which means that strong personal connections are hugely important. 

This course is designed to give delegates practical tools with which to confront their fears and distrust of networking and help them go on to build strong and constructive professional relationships.

Who this course is for

This course is for partners and directors of architectural practices, as well as senior staff who find themselves meeting new people and needing to impress them, on behalf of their practices.

Course format

As with all Colander training, this course is workshop in its style. It draws on Daphne’s personal expertise, as well as proven theory and advice, supported by group discussions and activities. 

Numbers are limited to allow a lively, interactive session and make sure that the teaching is relevant to each delegate; all delegates receive a comprehensive set of bound course notes.
