CONROE, TX --
“Networking” is something we do every day when we connect with another person. How well we communicate and make a connection is key to having another encounter and accomplishing more through increased relationships in your business and personal life. Whether you're a seasoned pro or just starting out, or if you're an introvert and hate 'putting yourself out there', this program is a great way to give yourself useful tools to help you grow.
The Conroe/Lake Conroe Chamber of Commerce will host the next Professional Business Development workshop on Wednesday, July 24 from 8:00am until 9:30am at The Conroe/Lake Conroe Chamber boardroom, located at 505 W. Davis in Conroe. This seminar topic is “Networking Is Just One Letter Away From Not Working.” It will be a “How to” with actionable steps to maintain engagement and increase deeper relationships in your business and life. Steve Scott, The Houston Business Coach, published author and keynote speaker will take you under the hood, to learn how to have better relationships and as a result improve your networking.
“We draw on our experiences from our own self-talk and our culture when we meet new people”, said Steve. “I will share information how this influences the way we network in public”.
Steve will share stories with specific points of reference you can immediately apply to be more effective in your relationships which can take your networking from not working, to working, and you to a better place both personally and professionally. Participants will learn about their own personal self-talk and the four communication connectors/ four disconnectors, that may cause people either to find you interesting or to be disinterested. Learn what makes you feel good after attending a business networking meeting or in a social setting meeting new people.
