How To Be The Session
Everyone Can’t Stop Talking About!

Explore with Sarah ways to integrate Connexity (community + connection) into your program design to create lasting value and be the session everyone can’t stop talking about!
- Identify at least two networking exercises to integrate into your program delivery.
- Understand that networking is one of the best ways to foster new learning.
- Discover how to use peer-to-peer learning to create better takeaways and lasting value.
