Join us for a Legal Mocktail Women's Networking Training Program

19 June 2018
Poyner Spruill

Often in law firms, the ticket to leadership is a book of business. We aim to advance the opportunities for women to lead in our industry by providing the women attorneys in our region with a chance to network and learn how to improve their business development skills.

Join us on Friday, July 20th from 3:00 p.m to 5:00 p.m. at our Charlotte office, located at 301 S. College Street, Suite 2900, Charlotte, NC 28202.

The Legal Mocktail™ is a unique training experience that takes place in two parts. The first part replicates a cocktail networking reception at which you will be given Mocktail materials, including a profile that contains very basic information that you will use during the event, supplementing facts from your own life. Each profile is strategically designed to have something in common with a number of others in the room. The goal is for you to find those people by using your networking skills. In the second part of the program, the group "debriefs" and receives feedback and suggestions for improving networking before, during and after events. As you might expect, there will be food and drinks, so the program takes place in a fun, lively setting.

This event provides opportunities to practice a variety of skills for successful networking. The focus of the Mocktail is on preparing for events and developing relationships rather than "selling" or "pitching".

Cost is $45 at the door.

We will be partnering with Dress for Success Charlotte and a portion of the proceeds and all clothing, accessories and donations will go to Dress for Success Charlotte.

We will be collecting:

  • suits, separates and other professional clothing
  • new and next to new shoes and purses
  • accessories, including scarves and jewelry
