While the sakura blossomed in Tokyo, special thank you to all our wonderful guests and members who joined us last at our second Tokyo Happy Hour.
Touching on the topic of intentional networking when building your professional network, our founder & CEO Tiffany Chou joined by Wonjin Seo, Strategic Partner Development Manager at Google, chatted about the importance of having female-dominated inner circles for women’s success in leadership and their professional development.
As women, why do we have to be so intentional in building a professional network? The truth is, it’s harder for women to succeed alone. Working for a corporate, you are often limited by your personal industry, joining learning events you can learn so much cross industry insights and be exposed to knowledge outside of your norm. But how do develop these connections without being uncomfortable?
Tiffany shared her tips on how she consciously build and maintain a resourceful support-network
- Quality over quantity
- Peer and community learning
- Exchanging industry insights
- Sharing personal challenges
- Celebrating moments together
We were joined by a diverse group of backgrounds from various industries, from third-culture kids, being in a constant identity crisis, wellness and conscious consuming, we instantly found commonalities amongst each other.
As always, we loved seeing all the connections forming and conversations flowing!
With our signature round of three hashtag introductions, the beautiful space at Apéro France wine bar was quickly filled with laughter and bright energy. #Community is at the core of everything we do, and we couldn’t be happier to be building one in Tokyo.
During the event – new friendships are formed, connections are made, belongings are found. If you are also residing or frequent traveler to Tokyo, who is looking to meet and build meaningful connections with liked-minded women, save your dates for our next networking event in the summer.
