Description of presentation:

In today’s highly competitive world, being a confident and effective networker sets you apart from the crowd. You become more visible, always feel in control and will always create more career and business opportunities than the average.

99% of people dread this vital activity; this highly interactive and entertaining workshop will help you overcome all your fears and concerns.

In an entertaining and motivational manner, we will:

  • Create an outstanding positive first impression, break the ice and start the conversation with strangers.
  • Create a process for getting to know someone organically, ensuring you leave every event with a potential business opportunity.
  • Get the best when attending seminars and conferences.

 

You don’t know what you don’t know!

“If facility managers do not budget time to learn, then they will continue to run around and stomp out fires. Eventually, the fires will consume them.”

-Winston Anderson, CFM & Upstate SC member since 2006
