Fast & Effective Networking - Creating YOU As The Unique Brand

**Slight Change of Location: We will be in the same parking lot, but inside the International Plaza next to Yu's Mandarin, for a change of flavor as well as being able to talk as loud as we want. Please call Peggy at[masked] if you need directions.**

Networking only pays off if you CONSISTENTLY attend the same group meetings and get yourself acquainted in front of people. When people see your face repeatedly and as they know you more and more over a period of time, they will then be more willing to refer businesses to you. People make mistakes thinking they come to networking events to find their clients among these people whom he passes business cards to, but in reality networking only brings in real results after at least SIX MONTHS of continuous effort and attendance. Business mostly happens AFTER the foundation of trust is established. Therefore, we introduce this new format to help our Really Nice People form stronger, lasting business relationships more quickly and easily.

The main theme of the Extensive Strategic Networking is "To Give Before I Receive. To Share Because I Care."

Please BRING BUSINESS CARDS as it is an important part of this structure. During this new format, you will be able to speak to EVERYONE and connect in a deeper level to learn about each other's businesses.

Topic of Presentation: 

Creating YOU As The Unique Brand

For those in service professions, it can be a challenge to express our business when the product is “me.”  Often times we see prospective clients or networking contacts glaze over as we try to explain our techniques and services.  We may also be challenged by an inability or unwillingness to promote ourselves as the product. How do we get our message out? Join us to uncover your personal brand, target market, and how to communicate your unique message so you can help others through your business. 

For any questions about this event, please contact the facilitator, Peggy, at[masked]-5714. Due to the constraint of the location, seating for this meeting is limited. Please RSVP as soon as possible to secure your seatings. Looking forward to seeing all of you!
