Make yourself Memorable workshop

Where: The Office, St Nicholas House, 31 - 34 High Street, Bristol , BS1 2AW

When: 28 July 2010 2:00pm to 5:30pm

  • Do you struggle to succinctly answer the what-do-you-do question?
  • Is your answer often met with that “glazed” look?
  • Do you really want to generate more business through word of mouth?

Think about the last networking event you went to…who do you remember meeting?

My guess is that you might be struggling to remember more than a handful. Let’s face it, we meet a lot of people at networking events. And unless we’re remembered by key people, then it’s a bit of a waste of time.This workshop goes through the 6 ways we remember information and how that can be applied to your networking conversations.

Furthermore, I don’t need to harp on about the importance of first impressions. And yet do you get the response that you’re looking for when you answer the most-asked-networking question? I’m afraid to say that many of us fall at the first hurdle. As such we are missing opportunities by not being able to articulate what we do in a way that???s easy for others to understand.

This Bristol-based session aims to improve your chances of referrals from the moment you open your mouth. It builds on the 5 step networking conversation that was covered in the Manage Your Mingling workshop:

By the end of the afternoon you will have:

  • Five succinct and interesting introductions that you feel confident using.
  • Targeted messages which have been tried and tested with fellow delegates.
  • Phrases to enhance your conversational flexibility
  • A formula for telling credibility-boosting stories that prove you will make a difference.
  • A memorable metaphor to illustrate your offering or positioning
  • An understanding of how to avoid being remembered for the wrong reasons
  • Spent time working on your own business with the help of other professionals

Developing and deepening relationships takes time. But it takes a lot less time, when the key people actually remember who you are and the value you create.

Owing to the small numbers in the session, only 2 members from any one agency may attend. If you’re concerned that a consistent message isn’t currently being conveyed by your client facing staff, please contact me as I can run a tailored session for you in house.

Time: 2.00 to 5.30pm
