Finding Your Focus; Are You Networking Effectively? [#downtownraleighpow­er]

Finding Your Focus; Are You Networking Effectively?

Erica Hartley, of the Great Raleigh Chamber of Commerce and the Downtown Raleigh's Women's Power Networking's event coordinator, is speaking to her industry. NETWORKING. Her full-time occupation is connecting businesses to businesses, business to consumers and consumers to businesses.

Is your idea of networking just a stack of business cards on the top of your desk?

Do you get overwhelmed with vague connections?

Do you wish you were a better networker?

If so, you need to join us on Tuesday morning at the beautiful Benelux Cafe as we discuss effective networking strategies.

Learn why every business owner should incorporate a networking strategy into their business model and get to work building a foundation of referrals. Referrals that do more than sit on your desk or stay on your mind. Referrals that help you build your business.

"It's not what you know or who you know. It's what you do and how you treat who you know."

Please "like" us on facebook. Let us know what's going on!
