Millennials and Generation Z are invited to learn the art of networking at an upcoming event hosted by The Huddle.

The Huddle is a new platform created by coaching firm Clarendon Wallace, aimed at providing professional support to 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 they can take with them throughout their professional journey.

“I am extremely excited to bring this second episode of The Huddle to young professionals on the island,” said Lorene Phillips, Founder of The Huddle and Managing Director of Clarendon Wallace. “Anyone who has had a successful and lasting career can speak of the value of having a powerful network for support, learning and helping to grow professionally.”

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

“When done poorly, it can sometimes feel uncomfortable or even inauthentic,” Ms Phillips said. “Through this event, we hope young people can see networking as an opportunity to truly introduce themselves and build real, meaningful relationships that will serve not only you, but the person you are connecting with.”

Other panelists at the May 15 event will include: Craig Bridgewater, Butterfield Bank Group Finance Manager, Bill McCormick, Selling From The Heart, Sales 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 careers find important.

The first event, held in January, discussed salary negotiations and how to find a job that matches your goal, while other events in the near future will address topics such as professional branding and effective communication.

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

“While the hour-long event tends to fly by in no time, I’m confident that the critical and timely information we provide will answer some of our attendees’ key questions and serve them for years, if not decades. decades to come.

“Networking is a powerful skill and each of our panelists can share first-hand examples of what networking can accomplish personally and professionally, so this event is bound to be engaging and impactful.”

How to Build Your Network: Successfully and Authentically You will take place virtually on May 15 at 3:00 p.m.
