Let’s be real: networking is important but how many of us truly understand it?

As we enter the working world, we are often encouraged to build our “networks”, and to tap on these connections to further our career. How does this really work? Isn’t it all transactional, to bridge connections just so we can reach out for help? If I hardly know of people within relevant industries that I want to work in, am I going to be left behind in the networking curve compared to my peers?

This deck hopes to give you perspective towards network building, so that you may understand the key principles of a lifelong craft of creating meaningful connections.


  • Developing a new perspective to understanding networking and the process of meeting new people
  • Strengthen your communication skills to talk to people more
  • Focus on building meaningful friendships to build your community support in the workplace
