Tuesday, September 26th – 6:00-8:00 PM – The Networking Process – presented by Chip Janiszewski

Dream it – Plan it – Achieve it: Networking is much more than just showing up at a meeting hoping to get business. In fact, getting business at a networking meeting RARELY HAPPENS… WHY? Because people BUY based upon NEED (food, shelter, comfort, security, etc) and/or IMPULSE (newest iPhone, etc). Commercials and sales pitches at networking meetings don’t normally fulfill needs or trigger buying impulses…
NETWORKING SUCCESS is based upon developing TRUST, which is a PROCESS, not normally achieved at just one event… Learn the process for networking success!
