This noon I attended #CanadasEnergyCitizens for a BBQ hosted by Steve Rennick and his team Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP) to kick off The Calgary Stampede
Thank you to master #networker Al for the invite.
Jeje finds it hard to network. #linkedintips to overcome her fear of networking.
1. Mentally plan for the event.
2. Set up a goal – meet 2 new people and reconnect with one you know.
3. Smile. It’s universal.
4. Have some opening liners. For today’s event, I client to ask another person if they had been on the rally.
5. Have a quiet #Chai moment or go for a quick little walk to recharge, as you will not bring your best self to your next commitment.
6. Reach out to your new connections on the following day to meet up again after a couple of weeks. Look at their LinkedIn profile, send your new connections an article or a post that could benefit them.
The key to overcoming your fears about networking is to practice a little bit every day — & to do it when you don’t need specific help. Karen #TedTalks (link 1st in comments)
If you’re an introvert, what networking strategies have you found to overcome your fears?
What happens when people of different faiths and #culture – #Muslim #Jewish #Sikh #Hindu #Christians #FirstNations and #LGTBQ come together?
Share a message of #inclusion #coexist and #hope
Meet Saima Jamal #Humanitarian latest #TedTalk speaker share her message of Anti-Hate Anti-Racism
#Canadians celebrate #diversity and #multiculturalism, however, it is also creating a lot of tension. It is very important that we come together and solve this problem.
Gathered at the event last night were also Calgary Police Service RCMP Foundation discuss #xenophobia and how to bring about change against hatred in all its forms.
LinkedIn is the largest social network for working professionals with new connections growing every second.

My Golden #PersonalBranding #LinkedInTips
✔️Create a hook = share a story
✔️Create a storytelling background banner image. I used Canva.com
✔️Share your WHY in the ABOUT you section in 1st person. Who you are, what you do, what others say about you and how to contact you.
✔️Catchy tagline with your unique value proposition
Contact info up to date? With the new positioning people are more likely to click.
✔️ Add your phone number
✔️ Add your email and website info
Many make this networking mistake of connecting with only people they know.
Brigette golden tips:
✔️Never network based on your current situation, but your destination
✔️Don’t judge someone by their job title
✔️You never know where the road will take you. Be open to connecting with new people. The world is your playground!

Few weeks ago I was going through a very difficult family situation and I had to take few days out of office.
When I came back to the office I found a message below, sticked to my computer screen. Every time I see it, it makes me smile. 🙂
Little things are not so little. Normally are the ones that matter the most.
At least to me…
