Our Chamber Education Series continues with Susan Long-Molnar President of Managing Communications

“Networking isn’t just about the people that we know, but it’s about connecting to other people.” Encouraging words from Susan Long-Molnar.

The Hampton Roads Chamber welcomed Susan Long-Molnar as the speaker for our May 25 Chamber Education Series.

In Long-Molnar’s presentation entitled “Networking During COVID & Recovery”, she led the viewers to cover important topics for discussion:


  1. Looking at Networking Differently
  2. What Channels for Networking are working
  3. Know Your Target (Target Connections/Audience)
  4. Maximizing Network Opportunities
  5. How To Prep
  6. Increase Skills in Networking
  7. Content is Everything
  8. Planning Consistency and Frequency.

Changes in the “new norm” have halted the way to connect in public.  The pandemic has also changed the way people think about networking, all collaboration methods, and creating new connections.   

          Long-Molnar leads the participants to connect for collaboration by splitting into virtual breakout rooms. The short time in the breakouts focused on learning details about others in the room that can be used for future connections.  

Long-Molnar provided an emphasis on following up which can prove to be life-changing; “Whether is networking in person, social media, follow up is everything.”
