Building relationships and connections in professional settings can open doors to business opportunities.

In this 4-week in-person cohort, participants master the skills of Intentional Networking, which cultivates professional growth and boosts self-confidence.

● Developing a brand that defines who you are and makes you feel confident,

● Building rapport with others through soft skills, including active listening and body language,

● Sustaining engaging conversations,

● Communication intentions

Florence (Flo) Edwards has been practicing dentistry for 15 years and has served in the US Army. As a young adult, Flo participated WMPG’s youth talk radio show. She believes in building community through conversations. This foundational concept fuels her creative endeavors in podcasting and hosting inclusive BIPOC happy hours called Fourth Fridays.
