About my 2 day Business Development/ Business Promotion and Cold Calling Workshop for Small and Mid-sized Firms March 6th and March 8th in Chicago. This workshop will be hosted by the Small Business Administration located 500 W. Madison Ste 1250 Chicago 60661. Call 312-353-3962 to register. This promises to be an informative day of networking, and instruction for both seasoned professionals and new business owners. There are a few things to remember however, when attending one of my workshops"?¦.
Bring Business Cards or postcards to hand out to attendees. You never know when you´ll run across potential clients. This sounds very basic but you´d be amazed by the number of people showing up for my workshops without business cards.
Come prepared to discuss your product or service. This is a great opportunity to generate interest and chances are a potential client will be listening.
Be open minded. There´s always information being shared at these events and even I learn something new.
Don´t worry about the cost for this workshop because "?¦.It´s Free!!!!
Be willing to contribute. This is an interactive workshop so I expect everyone to participate. It´s about learning what your firm does and how I or someone in the class can help with services, resources or referrals. Many attendees walk out with more resources than they can handle (the info I give can be overwhelming because there are so many great tips).
Bottom line come prepared to learn as well as do business. Here´s more info on the workshop. Hope to see those of you in the Chicago area there next week. And feel free to contact me about workshops in your area. I may be coming to your city soon"?¦ Ciao
