The Weekly BUZZ: Our Last Lunch and Learn

 Our last Lunch & Learn this Thursday

We have been hosting weekly Lunch & Learns for a couple of years now but have decided that we’re not going to produce/host this program anymore.  We’ll continue to offer the space for any of our members to use for their own presentations, workshops, etc…though!  And, for those of our tried and true attendees, have no fear as there are still many monthly Lunch & Learns throughout the state and we’ll try to share that info on our Fb page!

For our last official Lunch & Learn we’re proud to present Carol Scalzo of Hit The Web Marketing as she shares 10 Ways to Convert Web Visitors to Customers!  Click the link to register and learn more!

Improve Your Business Through Personal Development at this week’s Lunch & Learn!

3 Ways to Improve Your Business Through Personal Development with Guisela Pinto Caballero:
There are many reasons why you may have started your own business. Regardless of your WHY, your business growth is a reflection of your personal growth and development.
Common wisdom encourages us to avoid mixing our personal life with our business life. In this presentation, you will see WHY you should be doing just that.

Guisela will focus on:
*Examining the WHY of your business
*Personal development versus business development
*3 areas of personal development that impact your WHY
*Why mixing your personal life and business matter
*Envisioning your life and business as one!

“While studying for my master’s in social work , one of the first things we learned was to work from a strength’s perspective.

I really love that this was part of my learning. Otherwise, clinicians and even clients tend to focus on what’s wrong, what is not working, how “wrong” one feels.

I have taken this and much more into my coaching practice and I am happy to support you from the same strength’s perspective.

If you want to make some positive shifts and start moving in the direction you know you are meant to be on….let’s talk!” Guisela

Thursday’s Lunch & Learn

3 Proven Steps to Overcome Your Fear of Speaking:

*No, this isn’t GroundHog Day, and yes you did read this last week…our presenter was under the weather so postponed last week’s Lunch & Learn.  He’s all better now and will be here this Thursday.

We are all pretty comfortable talking to people we know. It’s usually the fear of the unknown that we hesitate to face; and few things are more scary than people we don’t know. Specially people that we are going to want to sell to. Whether it’s a product or a service, we fear rejection or just looking silly.

Many of us are trapped behind the hesitation and downright fear that can prevent us from stepping up. That holds us back from doing what we know we need to do to grow our business. That makes it impossible to come out from under the shadow of fear that keeps us from the success that we deserve.

The presenter is Richard Austin:

Rich Austin is president and founder of Speaking of Success, LLC. He has taught and coached business people, entrepreneurs, and students in the art of public speaking. As a life-long stutterer, Rich understands better than most, the fear of approaching new people and engaging them in conversation.

Rich has trained thousands of people here in the U.S. and in Europe. Over many years of public speaking and training, Rich has developed a proven approach to verbal engagement that makes people listen to what you say, understand what you do, and appreciate who you are.

Networking:

We’re going to keep promoting this event up until it happens NEXT Monday, August 8th… Total Exposure Networking (T.E.N.)

Our Lunch & Learn program will be back August 18th but in the mean time we’re hosting Richard Austin’s next T.E.N. event!  Total Exposure Networking…have you heard of it?

At most networking events you’re lucky if you get to talk to 9 or 10 people. Even then, are you delivering your message or just talking about the weather or the latest news headlines? At Total Exposure Networking (TEN), we make sure that you get to deliver your pitch to everyone in the room! Our unique TEN format consists of starting out with food, drink, and general conversation. Then, when everyone is there, we pick 5 people, and they each have one minute to give their pitch to everyone in the room. Now for the good part – we then take 10 minutes to allow anyone to talk with those who just spoke – to ask questions, learn more, and make appointments. Then we pick 5 more and do it again, and again, using the 5/10 format until everyone has had the opportunity to deliver their pitch to everyone in the room! A perfect TEN!
