March 5, 2013: Women’s Energy Network, Networking 101
Whether it’s for personal or professional development, “networking” is now a part of all of our lives. But 99% of us don’t know what to do, when to do it, where to do it or perhaps more importantly, who to do it with. Please join WEN for cocktails, appetizers and an interactive discussion regarding the answers to these questions and an opportunity to practice what you’ve learned with one of the industry’s professionals, Mary Hendrix. Mary is the Director of Business Development at Jackson Kelly PLLC and has over two decades of experience in the area.
Location: Mad Mex, 2 Robinson Place, Robinson Township, PA 15205
