Networking is part of your job. When meeting new potential business partners, ambassadors or clients it is essential that you can tell a story about your proposition especially for this audience. This requires a combination of listening and storytelling skills. In this workshop we’ll work on both.
We start with finetuning and adapting your story for any audience. Then we practice how to tell this story to the right people in a networking setting. First defining the right people and then finding out how to get into a conversation with them and maybe even more important getting out when they turn out not to be the right one. And how/when do you succesfully follow-up on the meeting?
This will be an interactive workshop with ample opportunity to try out new versions of your stories and tactics to tell them. One thing is guaranteed; At the end of the workshop there will be at least 10 people in your network who can tell a version of your story.
