The word brings different pictures to people's minds.  Some attend networking events in order to collect business cards.  Others go determined to walk away with a sale.  Yet others go to see the same people time after time.

What is your reason for networking?  Is it to sell, collect, or connect?  Are introverts or extroverts better at networking?

This Business Smarts session will help you learn great tools for attending networking events as well as learning to network for different types of people.

Come, pick up an idea or two, and increase your understanding of people and how they network.

Presenter Lynnette Embree has been helping business people network for over 15 years.  She is a Success Coach with Success for Life Coaching, a company dedicated to helping individuals and companies develop creative solutions for getting results they need and desire.

Most recently, Lynnette received the Advanced Certified Practitioner designation from Assessments 24x7, the leader in assessment tools.  An Advanced Certified Practitioner is one who has been certified in the five core assessments offered by Assessments 24x7.   In addition to assessments, Lynnette also has coaching certification through Success Unlimited Network in Reston, VA, and holds a Master of Business Administration degree from Shenandoah University in Winchester.

Because the SBDC staff will be out of town Nov 8-10, you can register for this Business Smarts session here. (We hate to miss this!)
