The Reluctant Networker: Asking for the Referral
Wednesday, November 28, 2012 from 8:00 AM to 10:00 AM (EST)
Ann Arbor, MI
Take your pick: 100 cold calls or one good referral?
Let's face it. Most of us would pick the referral any day of the week. The problem is, those referrals seem to be pretty rare and coming right out and asking for them can seem, well, "needy." We didn't boldly strike out on our own just so we could turn around and beg, right?
Asking for referrals is how your investment in networking pays dividends. Solopreneurs, small business owners, and anyone who grows their business through word of mouth should attend this workshop to learn:
- Asking without destroying the relationship
- The 3-step process to ask for good referrals
- Rewarding and recognizing your referral sources
In the end, this interactive workshop will provide you with some of the tools you need to turn your network into a powerful resource for success and significance. Come join us!
