Learn about the practical aspects of building a network and value in keeping it strong.
November 3, 2010, 7-8 pm central
Presenter: Alan Tecktiel, HR Director - Corporate Human Resources - McDonald's Corporation
"Whether in my role as an HR Director for McDonald's Corporation, as a University of Illinois alumnus, or in miserable existence as a Cubs fan, I have finally learned the value of having a strong, healthy network...and I learned it the hard way.
The way people connect with each other has changed rapidly with the growth of the internet and social media. I have NOT written the definitive book on networking, but will nonetheless tackle the rapidly changing landscape of how people connect with each other. The discussion will cover the mutuality of networks, review basic networking principles and process, and relate some of my most important networking encounters along the way. I'll discuss what continues to unfold as we develop connections virtually and in-person, noting the power and peril of tools like LinkedIn and Facebook. Finally, I will hit upon the virtue of living a network-enabled life."
Alan Tecktiel wants most to focus on answering your questions or responding to your challenges about building your own human networking backbone, keep your network networked and live a network-enabled life, so there will be time for questions at the end of the session.
