Build and practice your networking skills

January 15, 2010 – For immediate release
If you are looking to build and practice your networking skills, check out the next Community Organizations in Recreation and Education (C.O.R.E.) workshop on Thursday, January 28.

Networking is an important skill for any individual and organization. In this workshop you will learn how to build and maintain relationships with contacts, which in turn will help you develop opportunities for your organization. Specifically, you will learn how to:

Distinguish between networking and selling
Appreciate the benefits of networking
Feel comfortable and confident in meeting and chatting with strangers and potential clients in small or large-group events

Originally created in 2007 by Genworth Financial Canada to help clients in the real-estate and mortgage industry build their business, this workshop can help anyone looking to build their networking skills whether they work in the for profit or not-for-profit sector.

Facilitator Robert Low is certified as a trainer through Powerful Presentations, and he is a leader in the delivery of RECO workshops to help realtors maintain their licenses. Rob joined Genworth in 2005 and has delivered more than 84 training sessions in 2009 alone.

The C.O.R.E. workshop will be held at Town Hall, 1225 Trafalgar Road, in Community Room 2 from 9 a.m. to noon. A networking lunch will follow the workshop. Cost is $25 per person for C.O.R.E. members or $50 per person for non-members.

To register for the workshop or for more information on becoming a C.O.R.E. member, contact Louise Veres at 905-845-6601, ext. 3154 or email

C.O.R.E. is a membership-based program that offers Oakville community groups support in delivering their services to the community. For more information, please visit the target=_blank>C.O.R.E webpage.
