In recognition of the fact that no businessperson is an island, the South Shore Ad Club encourages colleagues to jump on board as the Club sponsors a season opening networking session on Wednesday, September 30, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Granite Links Golf Club, 100 Quarry Hills Drive, Quincy. In addition to casual networking, Jim Ayraud, Founder of Next Level, Inc., a sales management consulting firm, will raise the bar and demonstrate how to be much more purposeful and therefore effective in our business networking.
Ayraud believes that networking is like anything else in life—the more serious you are about it—the more success you will have. Come prepared to practice and role play. Plan to leave with at least three ideas you can put into place right away.
“In particular, service business opportunities are largely based on relationships. New business and recurring revenue come from colleagues and referral sources who know you and trust you,” notes Jim Ayraud. He added, “These crucial relationships often start or become galvanized at networking events. The challenge is to choose the right events and then use proven techniques to make the most of them. Participants at this event will walk away with a new approach to meeting good business contacts.”
The price of admission is $25 for non-members, $20 for members. The business public is warmly invited. Light refreshments and gourmet pizza will be served.
