Event Details

The Eyes Have It!


People like to do business with people they know and trust or with people referred to them by people they know and trust. Networking is the most effective, powerful and easiest way to start building those relationships … when you know how to do it strategically and systematically. It is far more than attending an event, shaking hands and talking to people. It’s attending the right events, managing the impression you make and conducting meaningful interactions that leave you memorable. This educational, interactive workshop led by nationally known face-to-face networking authority Lillian Bjorseth, will help you build more social capital by improving your face-to-face and communication skills.

About the Presenter

Lillian Bjorseth is synonymous with face-to-face networking. The Chicago Tribune dubs her “a networking expert,” and the Association Forum of Chicagoland calls her the “business networking authority.” A Daily Herald columnist says she is “as successful a traditional networker as you will find.”

Lillian also has positively affected tens of thousands of people in the communication skills arena with emphasis on impression management, presentation and behavioral skills.  She was one of the first DiSC® certified trainers in the world for Inscape Publishing, Inc. 

She’s a nationally known award-winning relationship skills speaker, trainer, coach and a prolific author including Breakthrough Networking: Building Relationships That Last, now in the third edition.

Lillian Bjorseth has worked and played politics in corporate corner offices and trenches and maneuvered the entrepreneurial battlefield. She knows firsthand what it takes to be successful, and she loves to share how to build relationships that last.
