Millennials and Gen Zs are invited to learn the fine art of networking at an upcoming event hosted by The Huddle.

The Huddle is a new platform created by coaching company Clarendon Wallace, aimed at providing professional support for Bermuda’s next generation of leaders.

How to Build Your Network: Successfully & Authentically You, will give Millennial and Gen Z professionals the tools to stand out and build lasting connections, which they can take with them throughout their career journey.

“I’m extremely excited to bring this second instalment of The Huddle to young professionals on the island,” said The Huddle founder Lorene Phillips, Clarendon Wallace chief executive officer. “Anyone who has had a successful and long-lasting career can speak to the value of having a powerful network for support, learning and to aid in one’s professional growth.”

She said that while building your network is extremely important, the act of networking is not necessarily a skill that comes naturally to everyone.

“When done incorrectly, it can feel uncomfortable or even inauthentic at times,” Mrs Phillips said. “Through this event, we hope young people can see networking as an opportunity to show up genuinely and build real, meaningful relationships that serve not only you, but the person you’re building connections with as well.”

Other panellists at the May 15 event will include: Craig Bridgewater, Butterfield Bank group head of finance, Bill McCormick, Selling From The Heart, sales trust coach, Samara Wilson, human resources support/ administrator, Artex Risk Solutions and Aaron Phillips, Allied World, associate underwriter.

The Huddle was officially launched earlier this year with the aim of addressing topics that low and mid-level careerist find important.

The first event, held in January, discussed salary negotiations and how to find work that aligns with your purpose, while other events in the near future will look at topics such as branding yourself professionally and communicating effectively.

“I believe wholeheartedly that The Huddle will create impact for the next generation of leaders, here at home in Bermuda and abroad,” Mrs Phillips said.

“While the hour long event tends to fly by in no time, I trust that the critical and timely information we provide will answer some of the top questions our attendees have and will serve them for years and maybe even decades to come.

“Networking is a power skill and each of our panellists can share direct examples of what networking can achieve personally and professionally, so this is bound to be an engaging and impactful event.”

How to Build Your Network: Successfully & Authentically You will take place virtually on May 15 at 3pm.
