Breakfast Briefing: Effective Networking & Business Development – October 2018

  • Breakfast Briefing: Effective Networking & Business Development
    October 10, 2018
    7:30 am - 9:30 am

The odds are high that anyone who is involved in business development will interact with others who are different from them. These differences can cause relationships to stagnate, disappear or grow depending on how you proactively address the challenges.

The featured speakers will explore a self-discovery process to assess whether or not you are aligning your current business development/networking strategy to what the environment calls for and why it’s important.

The Breakfast Briefing will also cover:

  • Social networking and why everyone needs to be “in the game”
  • Dealing with “No” and determining why this is not such a negative word
  • Learning why prospects raise their defenses when it comes to being sold and how to establish trust, comfort and confidence
