The Magic of Networking: Secrets to a Sustainable Career is a one-of-a-kind career development workshop for students. Your host is Brian Miller, a former globetrotting magician turned author, speaker, and TEDx celebrity. Brian combines short TED-like presentations on the art of human connection with actionable tips, techniques, and strategies for building meaningful relationships in social and professional settings. Students will have multiple opportunities throughout the event to implement Brian’s techniques as they learn them, networking with fellow students, faculty, alumni, and local business leaders. They will feel a significant transformation in conversation skills and comfort level in just two hours, setting them up to succeed in this new connection economy. Give your students the tools to connect with anyone; their futures depends on it.

Topics include:

  • Three ways to start a conversation in any situation;
  • How to form connections by asking meaningful questions;
  • Four ways to remember someone’s name (and why it really, truly matters);
  • Reflective listening skills.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Understand the difference between networking and spamming;
  • Discover the perspective-taking technique used by master communicators;
  • Implement strategies for connecting with anyone;
  • Develop resiliency against failure.

Length: 2 hours (includes 30 minutes of open networking at the conclusion).

The show went great! Our student staff loved him and said it was one of the best keynotes they have had for training in a long time! Brian was so great as usual. I had accidently messed up the time that I thought the students were arriving so he had to set up around the students and he was so gracious and easy going about the mistake. He even stayed after the show a bit for about 30 students or so who wanted to chat with him and he gave them a little extra magic too.
