Partner Event - Top 3 Systems for Successful Business Networking - Workshop

In the today's economy much of your success is not based only on what you know, nor who you know, or even how large your network is. Instead, it's about how deeply you foster your relationships long term, and stay "top of mind" for when those opportunities you're looking for arrive. Top earners know three systems that transformed their worlds from being unknown in their fields, to having the right people contact them.

In this full day workshop, speaker Lisa Ann Pinkerton, President of Technica Communications and founder of Women in Cleantech & Sustainability, will teach her time-tested, simple, systematic process for building engaging networks, including her the top three secrets for turning contacts into cash.

Date: Saturday, November 15, 2014
Time: 9:00am - 5:00pm
