6-8:30pm, Oakland
Premeeting WIC Orientation 5:30pm

Networking is more than just meeting a lot of new people and collecting business cards. Relationships start with networking, and your business depends on your ability to start and build relationships constantly.

In this month’s General Meeting, we will learn the "Seven Steps to Networking with Results," and then practice these steps in small peer mentoring groups to ensure that we come away with solid, actionable skills that we can employ in our business the next day. 

Heather RogersHeather Rogers, Productivity Speaker and Mind-Magician, will use entertaining "magic as metaphor" to share about the psychology and motivation of our clients, and how to build the deepest possible rapport through the seven steps of the networking process.

This meeting will be a lab, where we will gather in small peer mentoring groups to explore solutions for a specific marketing issue you are seeking a breakthrough in. Come and learn actionable skills to up your game for 2018, build deeper relationships and also enjoy astonishing magic, wonderful food, and reconnect with your WIC community!
