Networking for Introverted Clinicians

Presented by Allison Puryear, LCSW on 03-12-2018 at 9 a.m. Pacific (noon Eastern) to 10:30 a.m. Pacific (1:30 p.m. Eastern)

The word "networking" can send shivers up the spines of many therapists. However, networking does not have to mean appealing to strangers at a fancy dinner party. Practice building entrepreneur, Allison Puryear, LCSW found networking has been the most effective way to fill the therapy practices she has started in three states. In this webinar, Allison will share tips and techniques for putting your professional self out there and enjoying it too. 

In this 90-minute marketing webinar, Allison will explain why introverts may have more of an advantage in networking than extroverts do. She will explore how clinicians can tap into this advantage when big professional gatherings and public speaking are outside of their comfort zone. Allison will also discuss how clinicians can push out of their comfort zones and connect colleagues with their professional private practice websites, even if they are not especially tech-savvy. 

This marketing webinar is designed to help clinicians:

  1. Explain strategies for therapists to use when reaching out to other professionals for referrals.
  2. Describe why therapists do not have to "sell themselves."
  3. Discuss why introverts may have an advantage in networking.
  4. Summarize what to talk about when networking with other professionals.
  5. Demonstrate how to be efficient with your time and energy when networking.
