FANWOOD, NJ -- What do boxing and networking have in common? They’re both contact sports! And the more and better contacts you make, the more chances to become a winner.

Most advisors, agents, and sales reps are not born networkers. Great networkers develop the skills through education, training, practice, and having a positive attitude. Whether you’re in the market to write more business, recruit more prospects, or land a job, it’s not who you know but who you want to know.

In an interactive two-hour presentation at The Chelsea (295 South Avenue) on Wednesday, January 25 at 6:30 p.m., attendees will learn the techniques and approaches to effectively greet people, hand out and ask for business cards, tactfully transition and end conversations, deliver a “non-canned” elevator pitch, follow up, maintain a networking focus and strategy, generate more referrals, and most importantly – create key relationships.

Staying On Top

Some people are bulldozers. They move mountains, conquer countries, achieve the seemingly impossible. But then when there are no more mountains to climb, they falter. Routines, maintenance and sustainability are not their strong points. They respond to excitement and challenge, not to the uneventful, monotonous daily grind.
