Sep 24 - Icebreakers

Virtual Business Networking Workshop

You have to break the ice several times.

That's the secret to starting conversations.

If your first icebreaker doesn't work, you need another.

And possibly a third.

Yes, it can sometimes take two or three attempts to get a conversation going.

What's the best way to avoid those awkward pauses?

How do you quickly qualify people to see if a conversation is even worthwhile?

Join us for -- ICEBREAKERS!!

You'll learn several different kinds of icebreakers.

Then we break into small discussion groups to practice starting discussions, keeping discussions on track, and noticing when you've had a good discussion.
