Network for Success! Leveraging Social Capital
Presenter: Lynne Coggin
The strength of your relationships, networks and sphere of influence has a profound effect on your success. Participants at this event will discover key elements for creating a strategy to develop a strong network.
In the past, ASTD has hosted events to guide you through the “how to” of networking. In contrast, Lynne Coggin’s presentation focuses on the “why” of networking and the importance of building strategic relationships. Lynne will help us develop an action plan of how to leverage our social capital. Social capital as defined by Dr. Ivan Misner, known as the Father of Networking,” is “the accumulation of resources developed in the course of social interactions, especially through personal and professional networks.”
Attend this event if you are a workplace learning professional who:
- Seeks to improve yourself and expand your resources.
- Interacts with others who are potential resources.
- Desires an action plan to build a strong network.
- Wants to capitalize on your contacts for the benefit of your professional growth and development.

**NOTE SPECIAL LOCATION AND TIME FOR NOVEMBER MEETING**
Back by popular demand, Speed Networking returns to ASTD Northeast Florida chapter! As the corporate equivalent to speed dating, speed networking is a structured, lively and effective way to make many new professional contacts in a short period of time.
Countless ASTD members say that one of the main reasons they join ASTD is for networking. By fully participating in this meeting, we guarantee you will come away with at least three new worthwhile contacts.
Here’s how it works. Participants move methodically from one station to the next, round robin style, introducing themselves quickly and spending just a few minutes getting acquainted. There is no time for in-depth conversations; participants identify who to seek out later, whether it is at the conclusion of the event or with a follow-up call or email.

Networking is an essential skill that helps you maintain your professional edge, keep current on industry trends, find clients, and advance your career. It is one of the most requested meeting topics from our local chapter members each year.
The November meeting will focus entirely on connecting with each other.
Many of us are connected virtually on “Linked In” , but this is your opportunity to really get “Linked To” your ASTD colleagues.
