Social MediaNetworking Success in a post-COVID worldGet some new ideas... and have some fun

Who really feels comfortable networking… especially when most of it is virtual?

A key benefit of attending a meeting, conference or convention is to develop relationships, yet the vast majority of attendees report that this is a skill they are not “good at”.  And now that so many meetings and conferences are virtual, it is even worse. 

Every presentation is completely customized for the audience, and can be delivered as a keynote, workshop, virtual presentation, or master class.

This presentation is designed to give people practical networking skills that they can begin using immediately – whether it be “live in person”, or in a virtual setting. 

Attendees will learn practical skills that can be used immediately:

  • How to move contacts through the four stages of the Trust Curve.
  • Price-Expertise-Trust: The connection between networking and improving your value to others.
  • Fish Where the Fish Are: Learning to start a relationship – online and live in the real world.
  • Simple ideas on supercharging your Zoom networking with LinkedIn, email… and your phone.
  • Give to Get: practical tips and the mechanics of adding value to others.
  • How to spot networking traps and quickly avoid them.

The content from the presentation is gleaned from Randall Craig’s research, coaching and consulting engagements, along with concepts from his best-seller Personal Balance Sheet, and Online PR and Social Media for Experts, 5th edition.
