Description: Employees and guests of the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) hosted Derek Dickow to present, “The Art of Networking,” on Tuesday, June 6, 2017. The presentation helps people become more effective at an upcoming event, engaging at a conference, and gain confidence to stand out in any crowd.

The audience filled the auditorium to learn from the “master of networking” and learn important tips to make lasting connections. Derek shared his methods for effective networking and proven industry secrets through an engaging presentation, and provided an interactive strategy to help the MEDC team grow.

“Derek gave his presentation at our annual business unit meeting. Derek was enthusiastic and kept the group involved in the presentation,” said Executive Assistant to the Vice President, Lavonne Blonde. “Everyone in attendance mentioned one or more of the tools/ideas Derek presented as something they will be able to use daily while meeting with business.”

Dichondra Johnson, Business Development Manager for the MEDC, learned a lot of new tips, even as an experienced networker. “Derek presented ‘The Art of Networking’ to my divisional team at the MEDC. His presentation full of candor, helpful and timely. Though a seasoned ‘connector’, I found his visual tools helpful and were positive reinforcements on building a stronger network. I would definitely recommend him to groups seeking executive leadership development, those that serve young adults with budding careers, or any competitive business professional seeking relevant professional development opportunities.”
