Presented by the NVTC Business Development, Marketing and Sales Committee

December 8, 2006
"How To Get The Most Out of Your Networking: Proven Steps to Increase Sales Success"

Since the busiest social time of the year is upon us, the NVTC Business Development, Marketing and Sales Committee thought it would be the perfect time to brush up on how to get the most out of your networking. From holiday parties to business events, ensure that you maximize your opportunities to make the best possible first impression and build lasting relationships. Those in attendance enjoyed an interactive, hands-on, and fun session that helped:

  • Create an effective 30-second elevator speech

  • Make a great first impression

  • Enter and exit a conversation with ease

  • Ask questions that help build a lasting relationship

  • Feel comfortable and confident meeting new people

  • Take the "work" out of networking

  • The session was facilitated by Ira Koretsky, Chief Storyteller and President of The Chief Storyteller. Ira is a national speaker, sought after consultant, and professional improvisational humorist. He helps organizations create "wow, tell me more" business stories--stories that generate sales and marketing results. Ira's book, Tell Your Story in 30 Seconds or Less: 101 Best Elevator Speeches in America, will be published jointly by McGraw-Hill and Selling Power in 2008.
