FEI Career Services, Tuesday, June 13: Networking Skills for Executives


Dawn Quesnel, Coach DQ and Founder of Career Life Balances, engaged 42 attendees at the FEI Career Services event on Tuesday, June 13th in a dynamic networking exercise.  For three minutes, each person partnered with another to present their story, including a hobby.  Following this one-on-one, each person then introduced their partner to the entire group and recounted his or her story and hobby.  Dawn facilitated the group introduction with messaging throughout that highlighted her salient tips toward developing trust through networking:

  • Plan Ahead
  • Be a Good Listener
  • Follow-Up

Networking is about relationships, ask questions and listen carefully.  Have a message with clarity so you enable the listener to connect.  Use examples in your story – describe the situation, what action you took, what were the results.


Through planning, listening and follow-up, help that person help you.  And likewise, through helping others, you benefit yourself.
