Lunch Session // Working Your Network, Susan Mumford of Be Smart About Art

  • Impact Bazaar 394 Broadway, Floor 5 New York, NY, 10013 United States (map)

Building a network that delivers results is paramount in today's world. The good news: this can be readily achieved on a global scale. The bad news: this requires your most valuable asset, time.

In this lunchtime lecture, entrepreneur Susan Mumford, who hails from Arkansas, has made it in London, England, and is now developing not one, but two, businesses (a not-for-profit and social enterprise) in New York City / USA, will provide essential insight into how you, too, can build a network that nurtures. Having been described as a "prolific networker" by the Financial Times (Aug 2010), and not having known a soul in the UK when she first arrived, she understands all too well the importance of this activity - and how to make it fun and rewarding, too. Susan will be available for questions following the talk.
