            Networking with Confidence

            Speaker: Lori Saitz,
            Zen Rabbit

            In this interactive presentation, you'll learn how to manage yourself at events, so your time, money and energy are well spent. You'll learn:

            - 3 techniques to feel more comfortable at networking events

            - How to find someone to talk to, even if you’ve never met anyone there before.

            - Where to find the most connected person in the room and how to get them to help you meet people.

            - What to do if you get stuck talking to someone who’s giving you a blow by blow account of his recent visit to Leila’s Hair Museum. This phrase will let you gracefully exit the conversation.

            - How to convert conversations into continuing connections and why it’s important.

            Back when Lori Saitz, launched Zen Rabbit Baking Company and introduced the world to The Gratitude Cookie, she had to learn how to network effectively to find clients and referral sources.

            Today, as a networking strategist and speaker, she works with business professionals on improving their networking abilities so they can build the relationships they need and find all the clients and referral sources they want.

            Lori has more than 25 years of experience in marketing and communications. Before starting ZRBC, Lori worked as an on-air radio personality in South Florida. She is often interviewed in the media and she regularly speaks to corporate teams and at conferences and events.
