    Speed Networking with 40Plus!

    What does networking look like in an online setting? With the increasing use of breakout rooms, you may find yourself in one-on-one or one-on-few situations. How do you tell your story quickly? How do you learn important information about others and get their contact details  in a brief amount of time? Join us to practice these essential skills.


    The 40Plus Monday Speaker Series is sponsored by the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority (FCEDA). FCEDA's Talent Initiative Program provides great resources to connect our 40Plus members to hiring companies, agencies and non-profits across Northern Virginia through https://workinnorthernvirginia.com/
