    Presentation Overview:

    Influence Networking: A Strategic Roadmap to Change Careers, Find a Job, or Penetrate a Business Sector

    Networking efforts can easily become scattered and too broad to yield beneficial results. We end up making lots of contacts and coming up empty on outcomes. In a highly competitive economy, a highly targeted, focused approach can grow networking contacts virally, geometrically and globally. Using a proprietary model, this workshop gives a clear, simple networking roadmap and process that generates immediately helpful connections and provides a 4-fold return on the personal time and energy invested.

    • Find out how to use the Influence Networking model to
    • Learn an strategic and tactical process to build a new network in any field or industry
    • How to create a modular script to use as an audio-logo for introductions
    • What to say to open doors both in person and through online social networks
    • How to create the perception of a value exchange in any networking interaction
    • Layout a customized roadmap and action plan to penetrate a targeted field or business sector
