10:00 AM – Welcome and Announcements
10:05 AM – Today’s Presentation --  “Networking in the Flesh” with Gary Schall
Covid restrictions are easing, and with the days getting longer, there will be more opportunities to network with others. This presentation delves into how to work a networking event. Don't be that person who tries to hand his or her business card to everyone in the room hoping that someone might be able to help you. Learn how to make actual connections with those you might be able to help, and get better traction when you do hand out your card.
In addition to learning how to work the room, you'll also get tips on how to find events (most are free) to attend throughout the year to help promote yourself. Nothing beats making connections face to face. This will help you find more ways to make those connections.
Today’s Speaker
Gary Schall has been a long time member of LVP, having served as both the Marketing Chair and Executive Chair of the organization. He spent 21 years helping the newspaper industry identify their true needs and assessing how to address them. He recently started his own company and now does the same thing for LinkedIn. He assists people and businesses spruce up their LinkedIn profiles to help them get noticed. His LinkedIn workshops cover everything from setting up a complete profile to staying active on LinkedIn to get the best placement possible in LinkedIn searches. He also offers individual profile reviews for more detailed and specific guidance.

“Work Search Buddies: Finding success with a little help from a friend”
Do you ever have trouble getting motivated to start your search in the morning? Are you not getting the results you want from your resume or networking? Are you frustrated and ready to quit your search? Maybe a buddy to lean on will help keep the motivation going and give you the important feedback you need to keep on track, be more productive, and find success in your search.  Learn the “hands-on” steps needed to find and successfully utilize a Work Search (Accountability) Buddy. This presentation is a companion to my 2020 published book under the same title.
