Join an interactive workshop to discuss how simply being you is the key to differentiating yourself from others.

  • Explore your comfort level with being “yourself” with potential clients
  • Identify how you can connect with potential clients in a more mindful and meaningful way
  • Understand keys to demonstrating your authentic personal brand on social media
  • Create an action plan for using authenticity to market yourself in the next 30 days

Who Should Attend

  • Independent consultants or small agency owners seeking to grow their practice
  • Job seekers who are looking for the right work culture
  • In-house communications professionals who want to be more authentic at work

Bonus: Stay for a Meet & Greet with SF IABC Board Members
This is the first ICR of the 2017-18 board year. Join us after the event for wine and networking with SF IABC board members. We want to get to know you and hear your ideas on how we can better meet the needs of the ICR community.

Connecting communicators around the dinner table

As professional communicators, we all know that simple ideas can be the most powerful. Imagine the value of placing nine SF IABC members in an intimate private dining venue, serving them dinner, and launching a conversation on a fascinating communications topic.

Since 2003, SF IABC has offered a unique professional development and networking program called Networking 9. Featuring a handful of small-group, dinner-discussions each year, Networking 9 gives participants the opportunity to explore new ideas, share real-world challenges, and build deeper IABC relationships.

If you’re interested in participating in a Networking 9 event, please contact Jeff Leslie or Corey Connors, our program directors. Each participant pays for their own meal and the events typically run from 6 – 9 p.m.
