The Cape Breton Partnership’s Connector Program is offering a pair of free virtual training series aimed at helping individuals enhance their networking skills and expand their professional networks.
The first is called Make Your Connection: A Networking Event for Future Leaders. The eight-week program is for recent graduates, newcomers and students approaching graduation. Participants get four weeks of communications training alternating with four weeks of online networking events from Sept. 24 to Nov. 12.
These events are designed to give participants the chance to practise their skills and to connect virtually with groups and leaders from across the island.
A second series called The Cultural Connector: Highlighting Cape Breton Cultures and Communities is an eight-week program for newcomers, students and anyone from the community who wants to learn more about the diverse cultures and communities across Cape Breton. It will be held weekly on Tuesdays beginning Sept. 29.
It will highlight Mi’kmaq, Acadian, African Nova Scotian and Gaelic cultures. Topics will include history, storytelling and cooking classes for traditional foods, focused on cultivating meaningful connections and creating a sense of community that spreads across the island.
“We are very happy to be connecting our communities across Cape Breton Island with these interactive learning opportunities this fall,” said Robyn Lee Seale, Cape Breton Connector Program co-ordinator with the Cape Breton Partnership, in a news release.
“Though the current global pandemic has presented challenges to in-person networking and learning, this virtual format allows us to interact with a number of participants that would have otherwise been unable to participate.”
