Ignore Mom’s Advice & DO Talk to Strangers –Overcome Your Fear of Networking & Build Strong Relationships for Business Success

Your success in the business world depends on your ability to build a network and develop ongoing relationships. So it’s important to overcome feeling intimidated and uncomfortable in networking situations. Whether you’re looking for a job, already working in a company or starting your own business, good networking skills are essential for reaching your goals.

It’s easy to think (or hope) you can skip in-person events and simply build your business through online relationships. But in reality, you live in a world with other humans. And humans are still wired to connect interpersonally. Which means your business success depends on you managing your fear of networking, going out and having face to face conversations as you develop relationships with those other humans.

In this session, participants learn

  • What networking is and is not

  • Why online networking/marketing is not enough

  • 3 tips for feeling more comfortable at networking events

  • The most common networking mistake business people make, and how to avoid it

  • How to convert conversations into continuing connections

About Speaker:

Throughout her school years, Lori Saitz’s report cards said, “Lori is very bright, but she needs to speak up in class.” In 2003, she launched Zen Rabbit Baking Company and introduced the world to The Gratitude Cookie. In order to build that company, she had to learn how to network effectively to find clients and referral sources.

Today, as a networking strategist and speaker, she works with other quiet people on feeling more comfortable networking, starting conversations and connecting. Her services are in demand by business professionals who want to feel more confident initiating and building relationships that support their career and business success.
