Event description


Need more referrals?

Want to improve your business networking skills?

Join us at Perk Cup Cafe on Wednesday, Nov. 8, from 7:30to 9:00am for a workshop designed to teach business people how to activate your social networks (both online and in "real life") to generate more referrals for you - tactfully.

Remember to bring plenty of business cards! We expect between 20 and 30 business owners and professionals to attend.

What We Will Cover

Social media is a great connector. Most everyone uses it, whether it's Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn or something else. Through social media, people share a wealth of information about their lives, making it a virtual gold mine of referral possibilities.

We'll begin by learning how to recognize potential referrals for yourself or others within social media channels. From there we'll discuss how to engage in conversation and tactfully guide the conversation to a qualified referral.

To secure the meeting space, an accurate head count is needed. Please reserve your space on Eventbrite (free ticket).

Coffee and pastries will be served. There is no cost to attend.

There should be enough time for everyone to introduce themselves and complete the workshop by 9:00. (Although Networking rule # 1 says: come early, stay late.)

This session is sponsored by AmSpirit Business Connections. Learn more at

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

There is ample free parking in the lot.

What can I bring into the event?

Bring business cards, something to write with, and your thinking cap! Bring a friend! This is a hands-on workshop designed to give you tools you can use immediately to start generating more referrals for your business.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Call or text Mark Keating at 440 669-2972

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No. The only reason we do "tickets" is to have an accurate head count, so we can prepare the room properly.

Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?

Yes! Again, we don't need the "ticket" per se, we just want to make sure we know how many are coming.

What is AmSpirit Business Connections?

AmSpirit is a national network of entrepreneurs, business owners, and sales professionals who meet in chapters. Our chapters include only one member from each business category to protect the integrity of the referrals generated. Currently, there are seven chapters in Greater Cleveland, five in the Akron-Canton area, and new chapters forming in Beachwood, Brunswick, and Parma. Contact information for all chapters in the area can be found here.

Our primary purpose is to expand the scope of our professional networks, improve our networking skills, and help each other become more successful by generating qualified referrals. A qualified referral is a person who is expecting to receive the member's call.
