Startup Soft Skills

Presented by Rohan Workman

While a successful business needs technically competent founders, many opportunities will also come in the form of interpersonal connections.  This Master Class will teach you the essentials of business etiquette in the context of the startup ecosystem.  Topics covered will include how to not alienate investors, how to maximise positive exposure for your business and how to grow a valuable network.
