With Sarona Wolter


Networking Masterclass


A 3-week masterclass – with tips for connecting confidently  and growing a network in a foreign country. 
If luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity , then prepared to get lucky. 
Last year I made a decision to bet on myself, I was stuck in my small circle and I knew that if I didn’t do something – I would stay stuck. I reached out to a friend to get me an invite to an event in Berlin. I had to pay the travel costs but I was able to meet some influential women who inspired me to dream bigger. 
It didn’t stop there, in fact it was only getting started. Within a few weeks I got another invite to an event in Davos. This was crazy! I almost didn’t go because it was so expensive. But it was also an opportunity that could be so much more than I imagined. After some coaxing, I decided to bet on myself again. I went and it was even wilder than the event in Berlin. I met rooms full of women who were influential change makers – women I could now reach out to and willing to support my endeavours.  The experience made me realise how much I needed to dream bigger. 
A good network speeds up your success. 
Join us on the Networking Masterclass to learn more on how to step out of your comfort zone. Whether it’s to get invited to some high profile events or simply connecting with like-minded people – this is the masterclass to be.
