Winning Game Plan Seminar Series

Join Joe Sweeney for this six-week seminar series, where Joe will share the principles of his best seller, Networking Is a Contact Sport: How Staying Connected and Serving Others Will Help You Grow Your Business, Expand Your Influence – or Even Land Your Next Job, and demonstrate how they can be applied by Stritch students and alumni.


His career and personal development training program explores how you can find meaning in your career search, expand your influence, and make life richer and more meaningful when you flip your mindset and connect with friends, acquaintances, business colleagues, and even strangers.

You will be engaged by Joe’s relaxed, conversational, and motivating approach to life, leadership, and career development. Through his real-life stories, you’ll hear firsthand how, through trial and error, Joe acquired and honed his career and personal development skills. You’ll learn how he has successfully applied those strategies to enrich his personal and professional relationships and open doors of opportunity for his friends, family and colleagues.

Two of the six meeting dates are designed as Open Line nights with Joe, where you can call into a conference line to ask questions and receive feedback regarding your career goals. The program requires your commitment and a willingness to implement life changes.
