SPECIAL EVENT! Business Networking Luncheon Downers Grove

The cost for lunch for this event is $20.00-CASH ONLY PLEASE- (which will cover lunch, soft drink, taxes and tip)!

For this special event we will be focusing on our 30 second elevator speech. Catherine Johns is a speaker, an author, and a coach.  I have heard her speak and she does an amazing job of helping you change your introduction to be much more effective.

Catherine helps professionals who grow their business Face-to-Face ... whether that means networking, sales presentations, or a speech to the Kiwanis Club. Her clients get more magnetic so they can attract more business!

Catherine will also have her latest book on hand for $15.00 (which she will be signing after the event).   

The book is called.......Show up and SHINE 

Simple Steps to Boost your Confidence and Charisma! 

This is going to be a working meeting that I am sure you will enjoy!

Looking forward to see you there.   


Other Thinking For A Change groups:

Naperville meets the 3rd Tuesday of every month at Colonial Café 8 W Gartner 11:15-1:00

Orland Park meets the 4th Wednesday of every month at Giardano's 143rd & La Grange Orland Park  11:15-1:00


This group, Thinking for a Change, is what a networking group is all about. We meet to showcase our businesses so others know what we do. Then we LISTEN to what others do. That's when it all begins. We help each other connect for business and we THINK about who we can connect with them. Viola! We make friends; we help each other with referrals; we connect; we think for a change how we can help others, which then helps us (thus the name of our group). We continue to grow as a group and with our businesses. Come and join us.  Cost for lunch $15.00

    Great presentation by Catherine Jones. I walked away with some great tips on improving my 30-45 second introduction that I've already incorporated.
