Join us as we welcome award-winning author Jeff Beals and learn more about “Goal-Based Networking.”  Networking has never been more important, yet most professionals don’t do a great job of it. The successful professionals are the ones who cut through all the noise in today’s frenzied world and find ways to build trusting relationships with clients, colleagues and persons of influence. Now is the time to get out and meet new people! This session will introduce you to “goal-based networking,” a technique that sharply focuses your communication efforts.  You will learn what to say, when to say it and to whom you should say it.  You will learn how to synthesize social media with traditional networking.  Once you master goal-based networking, your colleagues will be left wondering just how you became so well connected both locally and within your profession.
