Your parents taught you not to talk to strangers. However, networking and communication are essential skills for building relationships in the business world. How can you overcome your fears and learn to network successfully?
What if you could be comfortable starting any conversation?
Joining Adam this week is Lori Saitz. Known as The Quiet Girl’s Guide, she is a speaker and networking strategy coach who helps people overcome their communication fears.
In this call, you will learn how to network without fear:
- Does it really matter if you go to in-person networking events?
- What’s a common mistake people make when choosing which networking events to go to?
- What are some tips for feeling more comfortable at networking events?
Lori Saitz (pronounced Sites) is a serial entrepreneur. In 2003, she launched Zen Rabbit Baking Company and introduced the world to The Gratitude Cookie. Through Zen Rabbit, she helped busy professionals say thank you to their clients, strengthen relationships and increase their lifetime value.
Today she is known as The Quiet Girl's Guide. As a speaker and networking strategy coach, she helps women (and some men) who are terrified to walk into a room full of people they don't know feel more comfortable starting conversations, networking and building relationships with clients and referral sources. Her services are in demand by entrepreneurs and business owners coming out of perhaps the corporate, or healthcare world, who now need to learn how to easily build relationships that serve their OWN business so they can serve the world.
Lori's reputation for going above and beyond on behalf of her clients is well known. She has more than 25 years of experience in marketing and communications. Before she launched Zen Rabbit, Lori worked as an on-air radio personality in South Florida. She has served as a pre-GED teacher and an adult literacy tutor and is a strong proponent for increasing literacy worldwide.
