Virtual Business Networking

Private Live Q&A

Hop on our monthly Zoom call, or check out our ever growing library of recordings.

Elevator Pitch Skills Lab

It's the most popular activity of The Virtual Networking Group. 

I put up some examples to inspire everyone, then people type their Elevator Pitch into the chat box

.


I give real time feedback on all of them. People often learn more from hearing feedback for other people, and from hearing so much feedback in such a short time.

I record the feedback sessions.

And I create before-and-after examples of how we fixed everyone's pitch.

Plus, members of the community get a private coaching call with me to work on your Elevator Pitch.

Zoom for Business Networking

Should you use a virtual background?

When is it ok to turn off your video?

Do you need to pay for Zoom?

Our primer gives you tips for using Zoom effectively for networking.

Effective Follow Up

How much follow up is too much?

What should you do with all the business cards you've collected?

This is our system for getting the most out of in person and online networking events.

You'll leave events with a few people who will be eager to hear from you!

How to Remember Names

Networking events are distracting. That's why it's hard to remember names.

You'll practice listening for names so you'll be able to remember them without repeating them three times, or creating silly monikers, or making up joke names for people.

And we share tips and techniques for remembering things about people (in addition to their names) over the long term.

Give Professional Referrals

"I gave them your contact information" isn't a real referral.

We take you step-by-step through a process where you can make introductions with confidence, knowing that the people will connect.

You'll learn why people will look forward to your emails and be eager to reach out to new contacts.

You'll also learn several less used but equally powerful ways to keep in touch.

How it works

I want you to get better at Virtual Business Networking.

Even after the pandemic is over and we go back to in person events, we will continue to do some networking virtually.

Now's the time to get comfortable with networking online!

Otherwise you'll be left behind as groups adopt the best practices going forward.

As I run new programs, members of the community get to come for free, then you get full access to all materials and recordings as I publish them.

This is your one stop for everything you need to know to network effectively both online and in person.
