Top tips for members: Networking and building relationships through conversation

Last week, we had the pleasure of hosting public speaking specialist Shil Shanghavi, who shared his personal journey and insights into building relationships through conversations, employing effective storytelling techniques. 

As the bedrock of successful business lies in relationships, trust becomes paramount. Developing trust hinges on how we communicate with our teams, clients, and peers.

In a dynamic 1-hour interactive workshop, Shil delved into enhancing our conversational skills by incorporating storytelling into our communication approach. If you missed the session, we recommend catching up by watching the recorded session by clicking the video link below (MGI members need to be logged in to access).
