In a world of ZOOM meetings and limited social interaction, how can you continue to make new and worthwhile business connections? Learn Kate's fresh approach to business networking and her top tips to become a masterful connector and someone that people want to know and do business with.

Kate is co-founder of Women Belong, a nationwide business networking organization aimed at supporting women professionally and personally. With a background in marketing, she approaches networking with an eye on broadening reach and amplifying a clear and consistent message. She has a passion for supporting small independently-owned businesses. She serves on the board of directors for the Rogers Park Business Alliance and has lived in the Rogers Park neighborhood for nearly 20 years.

RPBA strives to bring our business community the tools and resources to GROW their business. With that in mind, we are launching GEM: Grow. Engage. Meet. quarterly events.
