Professional Networking and Social Savvy
The fact is people hire, people do business with and people refer business to people they know, like and trust. All the book knowledge, business acumen and technical expertise aside … people assume this is in place…. at some point you will or should meet face-to-face, handshake-to-handshake to help ignite the trust factor, advance the relationship. This seminar takes everyday ordinary situations such as business card exchange, calling on a client, meeting/boardroom protocol, even sitting and seating, etc., … and shows professionals at all levels how to leverage these as opportunities to show respect while earning respect, show you know “the difference” while making a difference, stand apart and outclass the competition!
