In the midst of these uncertain and challenging times, our relationships and connections to others are crucial.
Unfortunately, there are many professionals and business owners who haven’t properly nurtured their networks to leverage them effectively in times like these.
Don’t add more stress to your plate mourning what you didn’t do. Here’s what you can do, RIGHT NOW.
As a small business owner, I understand the angst and the concern. But my perspective is different, because I DO understand the importance and necessity for a strong professional network right now. So I’m sharing that knowledge with you.

Networking. Say that word in any crowd and half the folks will cringe with thoughts of faking “happy” at happy hours and making nice with perfect strangers. Yuck!
While professionals may engage in the “necessary evil” of networking for their employer, small business owners NEED to because they ARE the employer!
While wearing multiple hats already, when is an entrepreneur supposed to squeeze in time to make nice at happy hours?
In this professional development series, Patricia will change your perspective on, and impact while networking.
Utilizing the skills, strategies and tips she has accumulated from over twenty-five years of relationship building in the legislative and executive management arena on behalf of associations, state agencies, and elected officials at the local, state and national levels, Patricia will share her wealth of knowledge on how to build a relational network that will stand the test of time.
By shifting the focus from ‘what can I get’ from someone to ‘what you can give’, you can quickly build a professional connection that will last beyond happy hour.
In this interactive workshop, you will learn valuable tips and strategies to ease the knots in your stomach and get you to where you really want to be: building strong, diverse professional relationships that last AND contribute to the bottom line for your career and business.
