For many people, the word “networking” conjures up images of forced conversations, dreary conferences or cold calls. So they avoid it—to their peril.

“Circles of Gold®: How to Network for Success” is a workshop designed to give you simple, practical and actionable ideas to build relationships that net results while honoring the people you already know. By attending this workshop you’ll discover how to:

  • Identify your mission—what is it you want to accomplish?
  • Define and expand your network (you know way more people than you think!)
  • Craft your message so people understand how they can help you—and how you might help them

Who should attend?

  • Young professionals who struggle with networking
  • Mid-career professionals who are stalled and want to jump-start their careers
  • Entrepreneurs who rely on referrals and want to increase profitability
  • Anyone who resists networking and wants to have a breakthrough
