Alana Muller is an expert in networking for success. Muller will share practical tips from her recently-published book, Coffee Lunch Coffee and companion blog, CoffeeLunchCoffee.com, and will lead participants in a variety of networking exercises.

Who should attend?
- Community members seeking advanced networking skills
- MNU students, faculty and staff
- Novice networkers and job seekers
- Seasoned networkers wanting new ideas to add to their networking toolkit
- If you’re business student attendance is a no-brainer. Majoring in another area? Networking is an essential life skill that will help you in your life and career, no matter what you are studying
- Introverts who feel awkward in social settings will find this practical workshop may be the key to unlocking new life experiences and connections!
