Engineering Your Networking Experiences
Wednesday, APRIL 5, 2023, 12:00PM – 1:30PM U.S. EASTERN TIME (convert to your timezone)
PRESENTER: Kelly Schrank
As infopreneurs, we are adept at researching anything and everything, planning documents and activities, and crafting our words to communication effectively. So why don't we use those skills when attending events where there will be opportunities to network? Come to this webinar to gain a new perspective on networking, use your skills to make the most out of the networking opportunities, and learn tactics for engineering your own networking experiences for maximum effectiveness and enjoyment. This session will provide advice and experience from an introvert who has researched this topic, used these tactics, and enjoyed (almost) every minute of it! Advice will be applicable to both in-person and virtual events.
Let's Get Social: How to Find Information Using Social Media
Tuesday, APRIL 18, 2023, 12:00PM – 2:00pm U.S. EASTERN TIME (convert to your timezone)
PRESENTER: Arthur Weiss
The world of social media is changing—with new platforms and new owners. As infopros involved in any form of research, whether for private investigations or competitive intelligence, we need to know how to get the best from it. This 2-hour workshop will look at what's out there – from Fishbowl, Parler, Gettr, and Mastodon to the ones everyone knows (even if they don't use them). The workshop will cover searching LinkedIn, post-Elon Musk Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Tiktok and will introduce how to link searches together to identify joint profiles using tools such as Maltego. The workshop will finish with how to verify information, especially visual information, and the importance of social media as a news source (real and fake).
Leverage Templates and Tools to Manage Your Projects
wednesday, May 10, 2023, 11:00am – 12:30pm U.S. Eastern Time (convert to your timezone)
PRESENTER: Janel Kinlaw
Do you have multiple projects active at the same time? Do you struggle with managing the scope of those projects? Do you wish you had tools to manage your project tasks that integrate with your communication tools?
In this 1.5-hour workshop, Janel Kinlaw will walk you through a project template that will help communicate scope, approach, risks, assumptions, and dependencies. She will explain what types of questions to ask while building out this template for a specific project. In addition, she will demonstrate and compare three project management tools—Trello, Airtable, and Asana—using a sample project. Participants will have time to explore these tools with the sample project or a project of their own.
Build a Product Dashboard 1-2-3
Thursday, MaY 18, 2023, 1:00pm – 2:30pm U.S. Eastern Time (convert to your timezone)
PRESENTER: Chrissy Geluk
Learn how to package a "product dashboard." Connect product details, history and company information, and anything else. Schedule updates so that information is updated. Techniques learned can be applied in your own research for your clients and perhaps in delivering your results in a different way. Learn how to pull from different sources (fee and free). Finally, learn how to format the dashboard with that personal and professional touch.
