Best Practices in Professional Networking

Join us on Monday, May 21st at Alliant Energy Center as our guest speaker Lori Gibson, Organizational Development Partner for UnityPoint Health-Meriter, will share best practices for professional networking, then guide us through an interactive session that puts those best practices into action. You’ll forge meaningful connections with other members and guests of AAF Madison, and walk away with new skills and confidence to thrive in any networking situation.

This is also our Annual Meeting where we will elect the 2018-19 Board of Directors. We invite all past AAF Madison Presidents to attend this meeting to recognize them for their contributions to the organization. We are also celebrating 30 years of the Madison Advertising Federation Foundation! MAFF has awarded 160 scholarships to students over the past 30 years totaling $138,750.

Lori has spent her career helping people better understand their communication style, improve their relationships at work and increase their positive influence. She works with people at every level in the organizations she’s been a part of, from entry level to CEO – and she’s learned that one thing they all have in common is their need to be self-aware, humble enough to learn from others, and assertive enough to step out of their comfort zones and make connections with others.  Learning from others and building a network of diverse people is not only a key to success, but one of the most rewarding things a professional can do!
