Sidney Meet Up Women’s Networking is proud to present our next workshop with Pauline Penner of JumpStart Business Solutions


Our next workshop: Networking 101 and Writing a Business Plan

I have a hard time talking to strangers. I don’t want to interrupt people if they are having a conversation. It seems so awkward to break into a group. Everyone seems to know each other already. Some people are so pushy- how do I get myself out of this conversation? I have to plan my entire day around networking, and sometimes I don’t even meet viable contacts.


Admit it: you have participated in this internal dialogue – before, after, even during a networking event. But before you go scrambling off to your next event with a fistful of business cards and your elevator pitch running like a ticker tape feed in your mind, attend this seminar and learn the 11 essential tips to make the most of your efforts.

Pauline Penner, owner of Jumpstart Business Solutions, is a business advisor in Victoria who gives emerging entrepreneurs a jumpstart to get their business going in the right direction. Pauline will present “Networking Tips to Build Better Business Relationships“. Pauline is a firm believer that networking is absolutely crucial to building your clientele. In order to make the most out of your networking efforts, there are some simple guidelines to get you started.
