“Success is no longer just a case of who you know, but who knows you.”

Melitta Campbell, Business & Communication Mentor for Women.



Networking is key to professional success. It enables us to find potential clients and opportunities and to share knowledge and experience.


This event, organised in collaboration with OWIT Lake Geneva (Organisation of Women in International Trade in Switzerland) and The Geneva Communicators Network, provides practical tips on how to build and maintain a strong professional network.


At this seminar, Melitta Campbell, Business & Communication Mentor, will share her advice on how you can develop the “powerful habit” of networking. Hulya Kurt, President of OWIT Lake Geneva, will demonstrate how you can make a Network Wheel mapping your connections to identify your network’s relative strengths and weaknesses.


You can then participate in an interactive networking game animated by the Geneva Communicators’ Network.
