About this course

Both in the professional world and outside, we all love those who manage to successfully connect, network, and maintain strong-value relationships with those who surround them…no matter what the cultural or sectoral barriers might impede them!

For this reason, UNITAR is hosting a 3-day training on THE ART OF CONNECTING AND NETWORKING, held online from 9 to 11 August, in which world-class experts in emotional intelligence, international etiquette, experience-building, and intercultural analysis will be offering you their exclusive insight on how to turn you into a true relationship-builder and natural networker…!

The  workshop provides participants the ability to enhance their daily professional and social performances by reinforcing their understanding of The Art of Connecting and Networking.

Combining hospitality-related modules with Leadership skills, this workshop allows participants to understand their current leadership style and methods to enhance their social performance; will address the objective frames through which different cultures can be perceived, therefore minimalising cultural misunderstanding; and will encompass the social faux-pas in different cultures.

By doing so, participants will accumulate the necessary knowledge and skillset to build up long-lasting and impactful professional and social relations under any circumstances or constraints.

The workshop will be held fully online through live sessions using the “Zoom” platform. The material presented in the e-workshops will be interactive and group discussions, quizzes, and assignments will be given for participants to further advance their knowledge.

Furthermore, UNITAR staff will be present to assist participants with any questions they might have. Participants who have successfully attended  all e-workshops will be awarded a Certificate of Completion.

Participants can include high school students, university students, young professionals, business leaders, and international servants of all backgrounds.
