Practical Networking & True Relationship-Building for 21st Century Businesses
by Maggie Mongan & Tamara Burkett
Practical Networking and Relationship Building are essential parts of your business development activities. These activities look different than they did 10 years ago. Time to learn how to create business relationships to improve your business’s success rate.
During our time together Maggie will:
– Define how networking and relationship-building are different activities and what to focus on during each one.
– Phrases to create unique and memorable conversations.
– Reveal and correct the #1 Networking Myth.
– The 2 things to do with everyone you meet.
– Tips for better networking conversations and follow-ups.
Next, Tamara will discuss the power of a 21st century tool to boost your networking and relationship building activities:
– Most of us know the value of CRM and might even have one, but most of us lack the discipline of using our CRM. The two main barriers are data entry and developing a follow up process. During our time together, I will explain:
– How to quickly enter contact info after networking. I’ll include a strategy for prioritizing contacts and identifying relationships roles.
– How to stay memorable. Identifying reasons to reach out to add value to others.

Please contact Keith Klein if you have any suggestions or questions about Wisconsin Business Owners.
-Have you heard of the “Blockchain”, but wondered what Blockchain is?
-Are you wondering what the difference between the Blockchain technology and the Internet?
-Curious how digital currencies (like Bitcoin) and the Blockchain are related?
You’ll be ahead of the curve if you learn now how the Blockchain will impact you and your business and your life.
Are you ready for Your Beginners Guide to Blockchain?
During our time together, you’ll learn why Blockchain isn’t a fad and how it’ll have wide-reaching implications in every aspect of your life and business.
We are amidst the early stages of a historic transformation which in the near future will impact every aspect of you conducting business!
If we don’t become familiar with Blockchain, at least on a basic level: how it works and its terminology, it will be much more difficult for us to assimilate it into our businesses and lives.
Come join me and other like-minded business owners and professionals who are seeking to understand the purpose of the Blockchain in a fun, interactive, and simple fashion! You’ll walk away with a foundational awareness of the Blockchain technology to advance your life and business.
