Networking Doesn't Have to Suck Part 2

  • NEX Atlanta 318 Cherokee Avenue Southeast, #104 Atlanta, GA, 30312 United States (map)


You’re trying to build your client list, land your dream job or make new friends. But the idea of networking makes you cringe. The thought of going to another event--pushing your card in front of people, engaging in superficial conversations while wearing clothes that don’t reflect your awesomeness--is exhausting. 

It doesn't have to be this way. 

Networking Doesn't have to Suck is a 2-part workshop (August 9th + August 23rd) that empowers you to build community while being true to who you are. 

You’ll walk away with tools to:

  • Show up confidently in a room full of strangers
  • Save time and navigate follow-up and a busy event calendar
  • Prevent the “business card grave yard”
  • Remove yourself from awkward conversations

As a bonus, you'll leave with a non-sales-y elevator pitch and a solid strategy to create meaningful relationships that turn into clients, friends, partners and new opportunities.


Evi D. has over a decade of experience creating and maximizing diverse, cross-sector relationships. A natural connector, she desires to make the networking experience accessible to all professionals by focusing on authenticity, intentionality and strategy. A testament to her walking the talk, she has not only increased her own network by 400% in five short years, but also utilized this network to raise over 300K in support for the causes she cares about. In response to resounding feedback from peers, clients and business partners, EviD is pleased to offer "Networking Doesn't Have to Suck," the first in a series of workshops that complement her successful consulting and coaching practice. She did it and now here's your opportunity to build a real community by just being you. 


"I really appreciate this type of workshop because it speaks to people like me who struggle with developing and nurturing authentic relationships with people outside of my immediate circle. Networking Doesn't Have to Suck really focuses on shifting the mindset of the individual to help them realize that networking is about you. You drive the relationships that you want, how you want in order to get the things that you want." --Randi Majors, Consultant

"Evi D. has also done an excellent job of connecting me with the technical resources I need to move forward. Yvonne is well connected in the Atlanta startup community and I know I can trust the web developers, financial consultants, etc she puts me in touch with." -Jason Seagle, Vayando

"Before I began working with Evi D., I was feeling stuck. I was confident in my network and community but unsure of my own talents and how to piece everything together. I knew I needed to learn how to get out of my own way and Evi D. helped me in asking tough questions to begin accessing deeper parts of my own thought process." -Johnathan Fields, Johnny Golightly
