Athens (Greece) April 21, 2016: The Women in Business (WIB) Committee of the American-Hellenic Chamber of Commerce hosted the 7th Women Leader Luncheon with Prof. Danica Purg, President, IEDC.
Professor Purg discussed taking networking to the next level – connecting for success. She challenged the audience to understand that networking is creating a fabric of personal contacts who provide support, feedback, insights, resources and information. Operational networking, personal networking and strategic networking empower us to achieve both our personal and professional goals. Networking is not easy—it requires a large amount of energy, but neither should it be “contrived,” it should be a natural part of our relationships. Networking, according to Professor Purg, can be used to turn crisis into opportunity, or a perceived disadvantage into an advantage.
