Cape Breton Partnership and Connector Program to Hold Two Virtual Networking Training SeriesSeptember 14, 2020

Cape Breton Island, NS – The Cape Breton Partnership’s Connector Program is hosting two upcoming virtual training series, each aiming to help individuals enhance their networking skills and expand their professional networks. Both virtual series are free of charge for participants.

Make Your Connection: A Networking Event for Future Leaders is an eight-week program for recent graduates, newcomers and students approaching graduation to meet local professionals and build their network in Cape Breton. Participants will receive four weeks of communications training alternating with four weeks of online networking events from September 24 to November 12. These events will give participants the opportunity to practice their skills and to connect virtually with groups and leaders from across the Island.

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 Island. The Cultural Connector series will be held weekly on Tuesdays from September 29 to November 17, highlighting 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,” says Robyn Lee Seale, Cape Breton Connector Program Coordinator with the Cape Breton Partnership. “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. We’re very excited to be able to play a part in keeping our communities connected.”
