Have you ever wondered how the most successful people network and inspire new connections with ease?
When you first meet someone and they ask you what you do or what your company does, do you have a powerful, persuasive, or memorable answer? If you are job hunting and you are asked what you are looking for, are you prepared with a compelling response?
In one single sentence, can you generate curiosity, interest, or intrigue instead of delivering an elevator pitch or a boring monolog?
Who should attend? Entrepreneurs, business people, and job seekers.

Aha! That's How You Network
This workshop is one of the first and only safe places for you to learn how to create an Aha moment with everyone you meet. Whether you have an introverted or extroverted personality, you will learn and engage with practical, useful, and proven techniques to instantly be more effective when networking in any situation.
Networking is an art and a soft skill you can improve. It requires experimentation and practice to be effective, and this workshop will give you only "solid nourishment" and no "empty calories". In other words, this workshop will be worth your commitment. Promise.
This workshop will help you:

Get in the right “networking” frame of mind
Walk into any room with people you do not know without hesitation
Approach anyone with confidence and poise
Increase your likeability factor overnight
Graciously move on to the next person you want to meet
Capture the attention of your listener with one sentence or question
Easily break into a group
Elegantly break away from one or more people
Be prepared with thought provoking questions
Quickly find something in common with anyone anywhere
Generate curiosity, interest, and intrigue for what you do or what you want to do
Immediately add value to the conversation

Prevent the bone-crushing handshake

If you want to learn how to quickly generate instant curiosity about your business and ideas from anyone you meet for the first time, this is the workshop for you.
By attending, you will actually design and test your own business or personal Handshake Intro that will get people responding to you with something like, "How do you do that?" or "Wow! That's interesting. Tell me more!"
