Tammy at the Summit

I got involved by seeing information on LinkedIn which is a wonderful tool. I sent Rita information about my company and told her that I was interested in helping in any way she needed, even though I am in PA (outside the Philadelphia area). I’ve been drumming up some calls to action by sending the information out to those organizations that I am associated with of which most have Chapters in every state.

I will be presenting a short keynote in the morning on Leadership and then in the afternoon I will be presenting my “Strike A Business Match” workshop.
The workshop

The term “business matchmaking” has become a buzz word for many organizations. Come prepared to take away strategies you can use immediately such as:

• Which Match Do I Strike?

• The Match That Won’t Light!

• The Match is Lit – Now What?

• And much more.

This will be a fast paced and interactive session so come prepared and be prepared to Strike Your Business Match!

Benefits from this dynamic session include:

• Turning Contacts into Contracts with the right Strike of the Match!

• Maximize your networking skills to find the “decision maker”

• Leverage your WBE/MBE/SDB/SMALL status as an asset

• Learn to think like the “buyer” and not the “proposer”
