Event description
If your business, like mine, depends on business networking to grow, you'll benefit from this workshop.
Before I started my current business six years ago, I worked on cruise ships for two years. I never intended to leave ship life but, as often happens, an unanticipated event brought be back to land.
Here I was, a man in his early 60's, unemployed for the first time in my life. I had accumulated some cash during my two years at sea but not nearly enough to buy a franchise. So, I did the only thing I knew to do. I started my own business....yet again. This would not be my first business startup and it wasn't something I wanted to do. I had gone to sea in order to avoid starting a business. But, now I had no choice.
I had what I thought was a great business idea but I had no idea how to market it in the digital world I now found myself in. My best friend and confidant advised me to go to as many networking groups as I could. The only problem was....I didn't know what a "networking group" was all about because I had never even been to one.
After six months of total failure in networking, I was on the verge of being broke. More than that, I was depressed and frustrated beyond belief.
About that time, I met a man who claimed he made $100,000 his first year doing the same thing I was doing. Naturally I asked him how he did it and here's what he told me: "I made 50 cold calls a day, five days a week, for 50 weeks."
It was then that I decided that I didn't want to make $100K that badly!
It was after that conversation that I decided that, if I couldn't leverage networking to make my business work, I would have to admit I was "out of the game." That was a very distasteful conclusion, so I decided to take on networking as if I had a client paying me $1000 a day to figure out how to be successful using it as a tool.
For three months, I went to every networking event I could find and paid close attention to the mechanics of networking. What was going on? Who was talking to whom? What were they saying? What was really happening?
In month four, I took what I had observed and built a networking strategy for myself. Then, I put into practice the strategy I had created. And something interesting happened almost immediately - I started making money! Not tons of money but enough to tell me that I was on the right track. 
Soon I was increasing my revenue every month by 10% to 20%. And, on top of the money, I was feeling, for the first time in a long time, successful!
A business coach heard about my experiences and told me that I had an opportunity....an obligation to tell others what I had discovered. She said it was like a thirsty man in the desert telling others where he had found water.
So, that's the story of how "Connect Like a PRO!" came to be.
So! Here’s the deal: Give me three hours of your life and I'll show you how I doubled my income using just networking strategies, skills and tactics!
You'll begin by answering the question: "Why do I invest time, money and energy in business networking ; Your ultimate answer will probably surprise you.

In this interactive workshop, you’ll LEARN and PRACTICE new skills, many outside your comfort zone. But you’ll leave with a step-by-step system that will enable you to “Connect Like a PRO” at your very next networking event.
"Connect Like a PRO!" is guaranteed: At the end of our first hour together, if you don't feel that I'm delivering on my promise, I'll write you a check for the workshop fee, no question asked. I'm that confident that I can help you.
I conduct "Connect Like a PRO!" once a month for only 10 people at a time. So, if you want to "Connect Like a PRO!"at your next networking event, I suggest that you grab a spot today!
By the a month I conduct a "Connect Like a PRO!" refresher event for those who have attended the workshop and want to just get better. And that's a FREE, "unlimited attendance" event for former students.

PS - The "Connect Like a PRO!" workshop is followed by a "dinner on your own" experience where we continue the business networking conversation over dinner. This is totally voluntary and current and former workshop attendees are invited.
