Course Name: GLOBAL NETWORKING

 

 

 

Course Description: How do you feel about your global networking around your student peers?

Is it big enough? 

Is it filled with influencers and overall interesting people?

Do you feel like you could reach out at any time and get help when you need it?

If you said yes to those previous questions, you are in a very small minority. Most people, unfortunately, feel as though their network is inadequate and ineffective for their academic and future goals.

Did you know that 85% of new academic entrances to certain lerning pods, centres, institutions come from personal connections?

Did you know that 74% of new partnerships started with founders that knew each other for at least 3 years?

In this course, we're going to talk about how you can grow and improve your global network today. By first starting with the existing connections we have, we'll show how virtually anyone in any situation can actively increase their network size and reach.

In this course, we'll cover how you can:

  • Build your first relationships and start your network

  • Develop the right skills to talk and interact with people

  • Look beyond your present surroundings to evolve your skills, education, and relationships in your environment.

  • Raise your profile and take leadership roles at school or other learning centres.

  • Grow your influence using tools and platforms online

 

Why would you want to expand your global network?

  1. The more people you know, the more opportunities you'll have. That applies to starting a company, finding interesting internal projects, and even excelling well academically and socially.

  2. A larger network means more opportunities to gain guidance and access to mentors. Guidance in your future and life is a hugely under-appreciated tool for success.

  3. Networks provide support when times are rough.

  4. More access to influential people means more access to future and HubPod School provides tips and tricks. Being effective at school, your business or other activities you are involved in is as much about learning through experiences as well as learning from others in comparable positions.

  5. The more people you know the more your perceived status. Being well connected is often considered a respectable trait. 

In this course we have a large collection of external resources designed to help you grow your global networking and starting at a young age. Not after when you graduate from university or college.

Who this course is for:

  • Anyone interested in growing their network and meeting new people

  • Anyone who wants to meet influencers and receive support & guidance from them

  • Anyone interested in raising their own profile and status within their industry

Class Experience

In this class, students will learn all the basics of global networking amongst their peers. By the end of this class, students will know everything they need to build your network some who will become friends, peers and down the road professional allies.

**Class Policies***

1) My classes are interactive and are primarily based on the Socratic learning method. Students are encouraged to have fun, speak up and ask questions during class and sometimes even debate. I will make the material relatable and incorporate concepts and materials that align with their likes, dislikes, and interests.

 

2) Students must have working cameras and microphones in class positioned to both see and hear them. This makes each class much more engaging and social.

 

 

3) "Punctuality is the soul of business” - Thomas Chandler Haliburton.

Lateness is very destructive to business. We expect each learner to login at least 10-15 minutes before class begins because we will always start promptly on the hour which is 9:00 am (EST). Students will be given a grace period by 9:05 am to log in after that the instructor must continue teaching. If there are no students in the class 15 minutes after the class starts the instructor will exit the class for the day.

 

4) I know in this Zoomed-out world we are in, people will get anxious and fidgety during sessions—That's normal and expected.  However, it is unacceptable for a student to become rude, disruptive, belligerent, combative, and confrontational.

 

Things like spamming the chat, muttering obscenities, displaying rude gestures, make threatening remarks or behaviour, or displaying and causing disruptions with the camera are not tolerated.  A student will be given an initial warning, and if they continue to be disruptive, they'll be moved to the waiting room. If the disruptive behaviour persists, they'll be ejected from the class and will have to watch the recording. All students deserve to learn in an environment free from disruption.

Homework

No formal homework is assigned. But instructor will give challenges to the students and then present to their peers. All students will be graded on their work.
