Networking-The Vital Link!

It has been said many times that if you have contacts, you’ve got it made. When looking for new business, certainly the names and numbers of the right people are critical.  But today, with all the database and contact information available, it is easy to know whom to call.

The real issue is not who you know, but who wants to know you.  Professionals talk about how important it is to build a large list of prospects.  What is more important is the number of people who have you on their list.

Professionals figure out ways to attract people.   Networking is a skill you can use to create ongoing success.  This workshop will provide a valuable 'toolbox' of takeaways to assist you. You gain some practical tips to begin applying immediately.   Attend this interactive discussion and discover:

  • How to remember names

  • Tips to maximize your networking effectiveness

  • The key elements of a powerful elevator speech
