11.30am – Sue Tonks – NETWORKING WITH FUN AND CONFIDENCE
Being a ‘good networker’ is essential if you are going to build your business and attract the right people. Networking is not about selling. It is about building relationships and creating trust.
Where can we network? Well ANYWHERE!! This is the fabulous benefit of developing relationship building skills.
This highly interactive, practical and fun workshop will give you the confidence and knowledge to be able to walk comfortably into a room of strangers, know who to approach and how; know who to avoid or move away from politely; know what to say and what questions to ask; and how to gain follow-up opportunities.
It will also show you how through chance meetings on trains, in queues and at the school gates you can create opportunities.
Sue says “Networking doesn’t mean you need to join groups or cost money. Let’s show you how you can do this every day for FREE”
