Creative optimism - a networking science?

Emily J. Hart, Founder of Change the Name & Director of Business Development at Seating Inc

Do you ever experience a 'vibe' from someone, before they even open their mouth to speak? That is because there is a science behind our energy fields that we are all keenly aware of... but rarely talk about. Let's talk about it! The more we understand our energy fields, the more we can ensure we are giving off the vibes we want, while also respecting the energy fields of others. With the science of creative optimism in your professional (and personal) toolbelt, you can successfully develop balanced and harmonious connections and relationships. Talk will include practical tips and exercises you can begin utilizing right away!
