Command Attention At Your Networking Meeting

Four sentences in and I'm thinking of supper ...

 
 

POSTED BY JACKY SHERMAN ON 20/04/2016 @ 8:00AM

According to Daniel Goleman in his blog post last year, you can only hold someone's full attention for around four sentences before their mind starts to wander. Fortunately, a picture paints a thousand words, so you can add an image ...

Andy Bounds, in another blog post, reminds us that a call to action from your audience will ensure something happens as a result of your communication.

So spend some time composing the four sentences that will inspire the people in your network to refer you, share them with me and I promise you my full attention!

Until next time ...

More about Jacky Sherman ...

I help people build and maintain productive working relationships both with their work colleagues and with a wider network to win more business. I do this by combining my skills in coaching, mediation and training with my extensive experience in senior management.

What I love most about my work is when my clients get those “aha” moments because I know they have seen for themselves the way that they want to move forward. Then they will achieve their ambitions.

Helping people who are having challenges with their working relationships gives me enormous pleasure. It was my privilege when working in health care to see how people working together can make the impossible seem easy and accomplish miracles as a result.

So helping people build or restore strong relationship with their colleagues makes even the hardest work easier, alleviates distress for the individual and reduces problems for the whole organisation.

In all this work trust is an essential ingredient to winning business so most of my work comes through referrals. Referrals come through strong business relationships so it was a natural extension for me to work with Ascentiv and train others in how to get consistent and predictable referrals from their network.

What a fantastic way to earn a living!
