The Art of Networking

 

Lesson Info

Following Up

Do you go to networking events and not have the confidence to approach people?


You arrive at an event and your heart is beating quickly and your palms get sweaty. Soon enough all of your charisma and charms go out the window. You try to lock eyes with someone so that you can find a someone to lean on in what can feel like a sea of strangers. But everyone looks happily engaged in conversation.

This is what many people feel when they enter a networking event. These are completely natural reactions, even for the biggest extroverts. The great news is that people go to these events to meet strangers, so you’re in the same position as everyone else.

Jordan, AJ, and Johnny, hosts of one of the Top 50 iTunes Podcast, The Art of Charm, will teach you how to no longer feel like you lost an opportunity.

They will teach you how to no longer be a wallflower and start making the most of the events that you attend.

At the end of this class: 
  • You will be able to walk up to anyone at a networking event and make a connection.
  • You’ll have new found confidence in yourself. You’ll be able to connect in business and real relationships with anyone.
  • Be able to authentically sell yourself. No matter what your product is, you will be able to do it.

Set yourself apart from the rest and learn how to maximize your networking potential.

 
 
 
 

Reviews

  • Not only are these guys entertaining and fun, but the material in this class is stuff you can take action on right out of the gate. Even if you do that with just one or two of their suggestions, it could make a world of difference. And if you follow *all* of their advice? You'll be a networking rockstar! Thanks, Art of Charm crew! Great class!
  • Great class! It focused on the basics of human interaction and how to make actual connections, not just collecting a bunch of numbers. The instructors did a great job of delivering really solid information. Educational and entertaining!
  • Not sure if the other reviewers were taken out to lunch by the one speaker who suggested taking people out to lunch, because it might pay off, but NO. NO! I only saw two of the three because I just could not take it anymore. First speaker I saw was the lawyer-- or ex lawyer. Cheerful but....sorry, just average charm.. so not sure what charm school is about. Take away of many long sentences was be nice to people because it might help you make money. Not insightful or motivating, but fine. Then I took a break and came back to the guy with a music bartending background. I would say the one with hair that does not move, but that might apply to all three of them, so the one with the most overdone "how much time did you spend on that" hair of the team. No idea what the point of that defying gravity look is. Anyway,... He was really bad. He basically seemed depressed and read through some tasks from a notebook that were so generic. He did not seem to want to be there and he seemed to need to read notes to recall what he was going to say. Think about lessons learned from mistakes. Seriously? This is original or insightful? Think about how you want others to see you. Ditto. We have all been there and done that. No one likes to make mistakes... but you might. WOOOO. Who knew? And more. He seemed annoyed to be there, so all the discussion about how he used to be grumpy but now he is always happy and laughing at night before he goes to sleep (???) seemed.. well.. perhaps not all that believable. He mostly wanted to tell us how happy he is now... but really seemed not so happy, so perhaps he is trying to convince us and himself?. OK I am sorry, but the reviews are so dettached from my experience, that I guess I am being brutal in my accuracy here. I wont' go on because I really do want to move on to something useful and I do feel bad writing negative things. But I do feel people should be warned given all the reviews likely written by friends (or people who received favors?). Most events I review get a thumbs up here. I am sure they tried, but after over an hour I heard generic stuff that was delivered either half decently or very poorly. This is not a thumbs up class. I would not buy it for a nickel. BTW if you are nice to people in the hope of what they might get from you, they eventually sense that and consider you a phony. Trust me, this happens. I know people like that and their circle of friends start to shrink over time... phony only gets you so far for so long....
