Network Differently! – Curating A Community

  • Standard Insurance Center Building 900 SE 5th Ave. Portland, OR, 97204 United States (map)

Networking is a necessity in today’s world. Researchers have found that people who are connected across diverse groups come up with more creative ideas and innovative solutions. And most professionals recognize the importance of networking in furthering their careers.

Sophia Glenn sees no limits, only possibilities, in building connections. With experience that includes more than two decades in the military and working as a global economist, she has leveraged the power of networking to break through perceived limits in male-dominated industries time and time again.

Are you ready to unlock your potential and grow your network in depth, breadth and value? Do you want to feel confident networking? In this interactive presentation, Sophia will inspire you to think bigger and accomplish things you never thought possible – all through the power of networking. You’ll learn:

The often-underused power of using questions to propel your career success.
How to effectively network inside and outside organizations.
How to “understand the system” to grow your career with more quality connections and confidence than ever before.


Sophia Glenn is a global economist and thought leader who believes that that anything is possible when women grow, lead and create their own destinies. When she transitioned to public service following 26 years in the U.S. Army, she quickly realized that she would need to take charge of her own professional and personal development in order to make a real impact. Leveraging her experience building deep, valuable networks inside and outside organizations, Sophia mentors new and renewed government personnel to make it, not fake it, so they can enjoy a career that keeps them motivated to fulfill the dreams they hold for themselves and the people they serve.
