Room 307. Registration Required. Most business owners and prospective business owners know that networking is essential to the success of any business. And yet, many fail to invest the time and energy to do it for a variety of reasons. It could be because they are introverted, stressed out, or just do not know how to do it, according to Emily Ballance, professional speaker and entrepreneur with more than 25 years experience as owner of two businesses. “Because there’s such an emphasis on social networking these days, people sometimes forget the importance of face-to-face networking,” Ballance said, “But if you want to get business in your local community, you must invest time in both. And fortunately, face-to-face networking is low-cost and can be very effective, if you know the right way to approach it. “In this seminar, I’ll be offering tips on how to build relationships and make connections within your local community. I will discuss highly effective face-to-face networking techniques.” “Bring your business cards if you have some,” Ballance said. “But don’t worry if you are just getting started or don’t have any. This is a fun, informative, and interactive presentation. It’s a great chance to meet people and…yes…practice networking! But without pressure.” Ballance is a Certified Speaking Professional, which is the highest earned designation awarded by the National Speakers Association. Women who have earned this designation make up less than 8% of the organization.
