About this Event
We welcome Susan McPherson in a fireside conversation with Nicola Corzine, Founding Executive Director at Nasdaq Entrepreneurial Center, for a discussion on The Lost Art of Connecting: The Gather, Ask, Do Method for Building Meaningful Business Relationships.

Even before the pandemic gripped the world, we had become a nation engulfed in loneliness. People have hundreds of friends on Facebook, & countless connections on LinkedIn, yet real connection remains rare & elusive. At a time when we are more physically distant than ever before-how can we reverse the growing trends of disconnection to forge meaningful connections in business & in life?

Susan, a serial connector & entrepreneur, argues that we need to foster value-based connections by going back to basics. Technology she says, is a tool, not a means to an end. To forge lasting relationships, we need to learn to be more intentional & authentic, & reconnect with people as human beings-especially right now.

McPherson has a lifetime of experience building genuine connections in & out of work, & offers a practical three-step framework to harness our shared humanity & shape our interactions daily-whether on Zoom or in real life:

1. GATHER: Instead of waiting for the perfect event to happen, think outside of the box & create your own opportunitybut keep it simple. Start by looking within: What is your purpose in life? What constellations of connections do you most need? Proactively seek diversity & find connectors who can further expand your reach.

2. ASK: Instead of leading with our own rehearsed elevator pitches asking for help, offer to helpopening the door to share resources, experience, contacts, & perspectives different from our own.

3. DO: Turn new connections into meaningful relationships. Follow through on the promises you made, keep in touch, & learn to move past small talk by embracing your vulnerability & having conversations that matter.

Drawing on her own stories & experiences-from an upbringing with parents whose letters & notes were generated daily to a large network of friends & associates, to her experience working in corporate America & then building her own communications firm-McPherson will share how to create a meaningful constellation of connections around yourself based on intention, shared interest, & helping others.
