VIRTUAL NETWORKING IN THE AGE OF SOCIAL DISTANCING: CAN WE STILL CONNECT?

This presentation directly addresses the new world we are experiencing as Bruin Professionals members, and what we might face going forward. What is Zoom etiquette:  should we eat or drink during Zoom meetings, what is ideal background and lighting, and is it acceptable to multi-task?  BP Minis, which used to be done with meals or drinks, are different now.  Who should facilitate them, how long should they be, and what is the best way to end them?  Body language will be considered, as well as appropriate attire for Zoom meetings and how we might deal with “hybrid” meetings when conference rooms limit in person attendees.  We are in a new world, with no assurances that we will return to the way things were before.  Other basic networking skills like elevator speeches and testimonials will also be addressed in light of the virtual world we all live in.  Attendees will be given concrete skills and behaviors that will improve our abilities to connect and be successful in BP.
