If You Think Yesterday’s Networking

Still Works, Think Again


If You Think Yesterday's Networking
Still Works, Think Again

Hopefully we all acknowledge that networking has evolved and that it’s no longer just showing up with a handful of business cards to give out and, in return, receive a handful. Today we need to provide value up front. We need to concisely communicate that value without “selling” or worse, “throwing up.”

Learning Objectives:

  • Obvious – you want to grow your network
  • You think networking and selling are the same thing – wrong
  • You want to be more effective in your networking
  • Learn tips to meet more people
  • Culture matters – know the culture of the organization & people you are networking with

This meeting will be hosted on Zoom.


The EPI Local Chapter is different than other groups because it brings together a diverse group of professionals from a wide range of specialties that can naturally work collaboratively on exit planning, succession planning, value growth, transaction or any engagement from both sides of the equation. The chapter meets regularly to network, reconnect, grow knowledge, and sharpen their skills with a common goal: Change the outcome for transitioning business owners. Make plans to join us for future events and connect with the local leadership by visiting www.EPIWisconsin.org.
