-- No-fuss conversation techniques that build relationships & help distinguish you as a professional --
In spite of all the new technologies that connect us virtually, there’s a growing need to learn how to connect with people in a way that makes them feel valued, understood, and heard. Using practical, easy-to-implement techniques, we can redirect the trend to generate the likeability and trust needed to build our businesses and advance our careers.
During this presentation, participants will learn how to transform their communications vehicles into powerful tools that gain and retain clients and advance careers. They will leave equipped with concrete, easy-to-implement techniques they can start using immediately.
Presentation topics include:
- Verbal techniques that make others feel they have your undivided attention
- Straightforward strategy for making small talk
- Body language: gestures that power-up (or undermine) messages
- Networking: how to make an event less awkward and more profitable investment of time
- How to navigate through conversation conundrums such as responding to unsolicited criticism and dealing with a nonstop talker
- Email/texting conventions that make others feel you have their interest at heart (and practices that turn them off)

Program - 8:00 to 9:00 a.m.
This event is being offered as a free education session.
