Bunker Brews Virtual: #WHYNETWORKING – 6 Principles to Build Relationships Before the Business Card

Las Vegas
Thu, May 28, 1:00 PM (PDT)

About this event


Titles change. The only thing that goes with you is the network of relationships you have invested in.

Most people and professionals think they are building relationships, but they are usually only building rapport to begin the sales cycle. They see everyone as their next customer, and never have any intentions of being someone’s friend OR being someone else’s customer.

This presentation will give you 6 principles to live by to ensure that you are connecting on a deeper level, before the business card or the title. These principles will give you a foundation to build relationships in person, or online. In this session, we will also outline networking “Do’s and Don'ts” and 3 practical strategies that you can immediately implement to start connecting!

You will learn:

WHY - 1 relationship can change a life. In some cases, one connection can save a life. Learn why relationships really matter and how real relationships will carry you through the greatest adversities, challenges, and uncertain times.

HOW - There are 6 principles to live by to ensure that you are connecting on a deeper level, before the business card or the title. You will learn these principles and how easy they are to do, and this will give you a foundation to build relationships in person, or online

WHAT - We will explore the “Do’s and Don’ts of Networking” as well as 3 easy-to-adopt strategies to help you stand out, and start connecting immediately!
