Friday, 15 October 2021

As part of our AMA series earlier in the year, we recorded a session with Daniel Geey (Partner, Sheridans) and Cynthia Mumbo (Founder & CEO, Sports Connect Africa) on how to develop your sports and legal network.

This session was designed to help people develop the human skills (Simon Sinek), which are often mistakenly referred to as "soft skills".

 The topics which were covered were:

  • What are the basics of networking

  • Approaching networking in a natural and organic way to build meaningful relationship that lasts over time;

  • Networking remotely via

    • Email 

    • Social networking

    • Online Events

    • In-person networking at events

    • Social events

    • Conferences

    • Seminars

  • Finding the right community

  • Contacting someone you think is unreachable such as executives, thought leaders, athletes, etc 

  • Breaking through perceived and real closed communities

  • Networking with other lawyers

  • Networking with sports professionals and athletes/players

  • Things to do and not to do
