Speaker: Barbara Boldt

Topic: Networking for Success Across Cultures


Networking in Berlin may not be networking in Munich let alone Detroit. What we consider to be networking, what we expect to get out of it and how we go about it can vary a lot between cultures. In this 45 min. interactive session we will explore how networking varies between Germany and the US and practice some techniques for networking successfully in the US.

GPWA’s Business Networking Fair – The place to have been!

Fred Hoffman, Christina Griesser, Rica Lade, Beate Turner

On March 22, 2011, the German Professional Women’s Association held a business networking fair at the Marriott Southfield.  Although an ice storm was looming that evening, the turnout was fantastic along with the synergy and enthusiasm amongst our exhibitors and countless guests.

Once you entered the transformed ballroom into a large showroom at the Marriott, you were able to visit over 30 exhibitor displays and discover their products and services.  Many exhibitors had the opportunity to network with each other. Some of our members also discovered what their fellow club members do for a living.

After taking a tour of the showroom, everyone enjoyed a delicious dinner buffet with dessert in an adjoining banquet room of the hotel.  You could hear the interesting table conversations about the networking fair and their personal connections to the GPWA organization and to Germany as you enjoyed the delicious food.

 

Drawing

After dinner, we all returned back to the showroom.  Each exhibitor had the opportunity to introduce their company or organization at the podium.  All exhibitors were asked to donate a prize for a drawing.  Before each company introduction, business cards were drawn for the prizes.  We would like to thank our exhibitors, Lufthansa and Warsteiner for their generous drawing donations.  Almost everyone was able to take home a prize and gain a great understanding of the exhibitor’s products and services.

Was ist Networking? Professionelles Netzwerken oder die Kunst des Gebens und Nehmens

Ein Beitrag von XXXX

Gut funktionierende Gruppen und Verbände, die berufliches Netzwerken zum Ziel haben, fördern gemäß Definition die gegenseitige berufliche Unterstützung unter ihren Mitgliedern.  Das Netzwerken in der German Professional Women’s Association (GPWA) dient primär der gegenseitigen beruflichen Unterstützung. Hin und wieder ergeben sich erfreulicherweise auch richtige Freundschaften beim Netzwerken in unserem Frauenclub.
