Networking is about making connections and building enduring, mutually beneficial relationships. It takes two main approaches: virtual or face-to-face. It’s important to utilize both strategies to expand your professional network. Networking has risen in popularity alongside transparency and human interaction in the workforce because people are understanding the importance of relationships and are gravitating toward people they know or have met to assist them with their needs.
Marketing, advertising, social media… these are all great but a lot of business owners (If you are B2B) are too busy to stop and reflect on your efforts and too many customers (if you are B2C) are numb to traditional communications avenues due to an over abundance of “buy this”.
This seminar is set up to help you make your networking exchanges count and get you the results that you need to help push your business further.
We will cover the following areas:
- Your business card
- Your elevator pitch
- How to find the right event for you/your industry
- Your personal brand/image
- Conversation starters
- The importance of body language
- Online Networking
- Follow up
We will then demonstrate/practice with the group (so bring cards)
The cost to attend is $35 and that includes:
- The 3 hour seminar
- A take away package that contains the information that was covered for future reference
- Some exercises to help build your networking confidence
- Light Refreshments
THERE ARE ONLY 30 SPACES AVAILABLE so book early to reserve your spot.
You know what they say; it’s not what you know. It’s who you know.
