How to Network and Build Strong Relationships for Civil Engineering Professionals

In this session, you will learn the importance of networking and receive strategies that you can use immediately to start building strong relationships. Not just 'business card' relationships but ones that will yield enjoyment and opportunities for years to come. Business development is a key component in the CE field, and the strategies in this session will help you to improve your business development skills, and increase your value to your firm.
