  • 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

Hear from:

Chris McDonell, President of McDonell Consulting Group who has more than 25 years of experience in sales and executive leadership, on how to be an effective networker who creates new, while retaining current, business relationships. McDonell has lived and worked around the U.S. for some of the world’s leading financial corporations, such as Morgan Stanley, Citigroup and The Associates. McDonell has been with Sandler Training since 2008 and has formed successful long term partnerships with both small and large companies in a wide variety of industries.

As an executive in the corporate world, he has led large sales, operation, and management teams to reach and surpass business goals on a continual basis; and has hands-on experience and expertise in all areas of leadership, marketing, operations and sales, having trained and coached thousands of sales professionals, sales managers and senior level management of both large and small companies across the country.

Join the Greater Baltimore Committee for a conversation with United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Robert K. Hur, who will discuss the role of the United States Attorney in Maryland. Hur will also offer his perspective on the role of the United States Attorney and his vision for the office.

Hur, who was appointed the 48th United States Attorney for the District of Maryland in April, previously served as Principal Associate Deputy Attorney General with the Department of Justice in Washington, D.C. In that role he was a member of the department’s senior leadership team and the top aide to Deputy Attorney General Rod J.

Hur served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the District of Maryland from 2007 to 2014, where he prosecuted gang violence, firearms offenses and narcotics trafficking, as well as white-collar offenses.

Before joining the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Hur served as Special Assistant and later Counsel to the Assistant Attorney General in charge of the Criminal Division, where he handled counterterrorism, corporate fraud and appellate matters. In addition to his service with the Department of Justice, Hur was a litigation partner with a major law firm in Washington, D.C., where he represented companies and individuals facing criminal and regulatory enforcement actions before the Department of Justice, the Securities and Exchange Commission and other federal agencies, as well as related civil litigation.

Hur began his legal career as a law clerk for the late William H. Rehnquist, Chief Justice of the United States, and Judge Alex Kozinski of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. He earned a bachelor’s degree, magna cum laude with highest honors, from Harvard College and a Juris Doctor from Stanford Law School, where he served as Executive Editor of the Stanford Law Review.
