NETWORKING - How to network effectively and gain great referrals
November 18, 2011
Hosted by Chris Cooper
We’ve all been there—at a networking or business event, ready with our business cards in hand. It’s no secret that networking is an essential tool for business, but as most networking experts, including Dr. Ivan Misner, founder and chairman of BNI (Business Networking International) and Andy Lopata (Business Networking Strategist) will tell you, meeting new people is only half the battle. “Networking is simple, but it’s not easy,” explains Ivan, “Contrary to popular belief, it takes more than an elevator pitch and a business card. Successful networking is about cultivating and maintaining strong relationships, and the courting begins the first time you meet a potential business partner.” As Andy says "the real power comes from people who know, like and trust you". This show will help you to understand the art of networking and converting into quality referrals. We are so fortunate to have two of the world's top experts on this show so don't miss it!
