FREE masterclass will share top networking tips

Talent United, the employer engagement initiative run by Barnsley College, will host a free masterclass this month on perfect elevator pitching and techniques for networking success.

The informal event is open to all and takes place on Thursday 5 March, 9.30am to 12 noon in The Hub Space at Barnsley College’s Old Mill Lane campus, Church Street, Barnsley, S70 2AX.

The session will be hosted by Elaine Mitchell, a coach, speaker and author with a passion for confident communication. Elaine has been in business for over a decade, helping business owners to find their voice whilst being creative and authentic in business.

The masterclass will cover ways to get the best out of your networking efforts. Elaine said: “This session is ideal for anyone who has to network as part of their role. They will leave with a powerful pitch and a set of skills and techniques that can be transferred to any networking situation, empowering them to speak with confidence at any event.”
