Networking Workshop: The Fine Art of Knowing What to Say

Everyone is in sales. Whether you’re pitching the next great idea to your boss or trying to get an appointment with a prospect, the first step is having a compelling story to tell. You already know about the importance of the elevator speech, but do you know how to use it, and when?

Chamber members are invited to join us for a four-part, interactive workshop that will help you make the most of Chamber networking opportunities and one-on-one interactions. Participants will learn how to develop an elevator pitch and turn it into a relevant story that differentiates you from your competition. You’ll determine the critical questions to ask next, and how to ask a prospect to take action.

Participation is limited to ensure a quality experience. Members who want to attend are asked to commit to all four workshops. The workshops will be held at the Wake Forest Chamber, 350 S. White Street, from 9:00 – 10:00 am on the following dates: October 9th and 23rd, November 13th and 27th.  The cost for all four workshops is $40, and this fee includes your registration in Schmoozapalooza scheduled for November 30, 2018.

He is currently the owner and Chief Connection Officer of The Thompson Agency, and an active Wake Forest Chamber of Commerce member. Mark developed this program to help business professionals increase sales by improving their stories.
