Our Structured Networking sessions are the complete opposite of general networking. These are expertly curated, guided sessions which help you engage with ease, connect authentically and create an experience of dynamic learning about self and others.
Shazaf has thought of really creative and unique tools to get total strangers in a room to connect without any qualms of title, background, gender or age. I was genuinely impressed at how "non-transactional" this evening was, as folks were able to find out more about the real me in a couple of hours than they would have probably discovered at a traditional "Crop circle" in our corporate lives. Go for an evening of fun, great food and laughter!read more
It was a great session and really fun. I had no idea what to expect when I arrived but in the two hours, I learnt more about the other people in the room than I ever believed I could. During traditional networking sessions you only get to speak to a select number of people, and on some occasions even stuck with the same person! Shazaf's tips and exercises were great in getting everyone actively involved and interacting easily. Also, in traditional networking, I would never have found out a fraction of the information I did from the people I met at the Beyond Networking session. It was an informative evening and gave me some great new tips for more effective networking in the future! Forget the business cards people and find out more than just someone's name and occupation! Give it a go!read more
Recommended! Definitely worth my time and money!You’re leaving the session not full of business cards, but full of interesting insights and shared ideas.Through Shazaf’s guidance, participants explore the psychology behind networking as an activity and how to bring more meaning to it, how to create deeper connection with people.Haven’t looked at my watch for 2 hours+. Thank you, Shazaf!read more
If you are looking for a meaningful networking event, then this is the one. People were themselves, in a cozy and relaxed space, sharing genuinely and spontaneously about their journey. It was not about the job title but rather about real people learning from each other! Shazaf conducted the event so naturally, making everyone belong. A must-do if you are not a fan of networking events! A very special gathering!read more
Not just another networking event! Very well structured yet very relaxing that opened up everyone’s personality and all was willingly shared ideas/thoughts into the discussion. I’d recommend everyone to at least go to one session - I’d go to more! Well done Shazaf! See you in Hoi An!!
I participated in Linkked’s Structured Networking held at 500 Start Ups, and it was amazing! It gave a new approach to networking that I have never seen before. I was honestly very surprised on how much Shazaf's methods work. The atmosphere was very relaxed and everyone was truly engaged with one another. It is a great way to meet and network with intelligent and interesting people!read more
This past evening had to stay late at work and was told a group would stay on my floor for 2 hours. Given I work on one of the top floors of 1 World Trade Center, I thought it would be another group of brokers snacking on finger food brought in to sell space by property manager or another group of med students graduating and snacking again on finger food and joy of billing for life health insurance companies. It was not, it was just a group of Columbia Business School Graduates, about 25, coming for again finger food and supposedly a networking event. Thought again it was as meaningless as the gorup of real estate brokers coming with rolex watches and pumping prices per square foot. It would be a noise of mindlessness. Suddenly that room became all quiet and a moderator took leadership of the group, First, she said she would introduce herself at the end and started to talk about the importance of networking properly in life defining the why how and when , how it impacts careers centered on project blocks and had suddenly in a second phase all members network in parity and discover themselves and learn about themselves. She was using spectacular tools and will not reveal. It was such an enriching collaborative symphony At the end she introduced herself and all clapped and I also did clap. It was a spectacular workshop and I would recommend it to anybody unless they wish to become a monk at ST Martin du Canigouread more
Skeptic... I have organised 70+ networking events, so seeing all these 5 star reviews, even after having met Shazaf, left me very skeptic. Paying for a networking event? Never done that either, and not inclined. She has an Ed.M in Psychology and years of experience, but organises events... suspicious. Ends up, I registered, paid, went, and really loved every minute of it. Go there to have a conversation with people to get to know them for real, go there for a real engaging human conversation where people never value you for your job title but for who you really are. It was indeed a 5 star evening.read more
Excellent experience at each of the three events I've attended. The thoughtfulness and care that Shazaf puts into each event really shows. She creates an environment for you to make lasting connections, and you leave feeling great about yourself! Highly recommend!
If you haven't attended a Linkked networking event yet, sign up for the next one now. You'll see, it's nothing like anything you've experienced before. I was part of the last Sip & Tips and was thrilled with the event's content and guests attending. Made so meaningful connections that evening! Looking forward to the next Linkked event Shazaf.read more
Amazing event! I learnt a lot, made new friends and got tips and support for my dreams. It was Shazaf's unique format and facilitation, intimate setting and diverse crowd that made this special. Highly recommended!
First time I attend a networking event and walked away feeling that I made meaningful connections, not just with the facilitator, but with the other attendees. I actually had fun... lots of it! Can't wait to attend the next event.
