Event Description:


Have you ever had a bad experience at a networking event? Do you wonder how to make new connections and build your sphere of influence in 2021? The speed at which you build deep and genuine business relationships can be taught, trained, and replicated.


Social capital is becoming the most important currency, now and far into the future. Super Connectors are those willing to make long-lasting connections, curate information and people connections, and are constantly learning about others. There is a strategy and art to this, and anyone can learn it.


During this informative and interactive workshop, participants will learn and practice the steps to make connections and leave with specific strategies and a game plan to build their connections. Topics that will be covered include:

  • What is a Super Connector? What do they know? How do they think?
  • What are the 3 types of connectors?
  • The 8 steps to truly connecting.
  • How to overcome your biggest challenges in making connections.
  • Practice the specific steps and create your action plan.
