    WIIM Webinar: "Putting Your Best Foot Forward": Making Memorable Virtual Impressions

    September 15, 11am-12pm ET.

    As a follow up to our professional development series providing you with insights about gathering the proper tech tools for your optimal WFH experiences, this month we are focusing on how to best leverage the various social media platforms to ensure that you're putting your best foot forward virtually. If you were preparing for an in-person meeting or networking event, you wouldn't think twice about ensuring that you had all of the "I's dotted and "T's crossed" as they say. That same attention to detail needs to be incorporated into your Virtual Professionalism Kit!

    Join us for this 2nd edition of our professional development series where we tackle this transition to putting your best foot forward in the WFH environment. We are pleased to have well-known technology evangelist, Dennis C. Garcia, Esq., of Microsoft, share with us strategic networking processes to put into place in your virtual environment, common sense etiquette "rules of the road" to incorporate into your virtual meetings and mindful collaboration methods to ensure that you're creating a comfortable experience for yourself and others in the virtual WFH arena. At the end of virtual interaction, you want that person on the other end of the virtual connection to have that lasting and memorable virtual impression of you. It's critical not only to your continued success within your industry but also to your career trajectory!

    Speaker: Dennis Garcia, Assistant General Counsel, Corporate, External and Legal Affairs, Microsoft

    WIIM CIRCLE - Continuing the Conversation ~ Putting Your Best Foot Forward - Part 2: Making Memorable Virtual Impressions

    September 22, 11am-12pm ET

    Let's continue discussing tips and tricks that you've found to help your appearance and presence virtually. WIIM Circles are roundtables and designed as conversation-based sessions. To encourage candor and preserve confidentiality, this session will NOT be recorded. We encourage web camera sharing as that helps build connections and trust.

    Registration is here - https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZwrfuqorjwsHdXyf6BkBev4apw5vlnro8QX

    We hope you can join us for both, but not essential as we will record the webinar and post prior to the WIIM Circle.

    Do let us know if there is a particular topic you would like to see us add to the calendar. We are open to suggestions.

    See you soon,

    Your WIIM Leadership Council
