We’ve all heard the phrase 'six degrees of separation' and when applied in Ireland we can honestly say there are probably no more than two or three degrees of separation.  So, how many of us can sincerely say we strategically focus on developing our network by using our contacts? 

This seminar will discuss the power of developing and nurturing your network so that you can build valuable contacts and ultimately create real opportunities. 

You will gain insightful tips to improve your ability to source, reconnect, communicate and influence potential customers so that you can generate leads and win sales.

Our speaker Karen Sommerville. Founder & Director of Call Focus, offers a wealth of experience in many areas of communications, sales, marketing and customer relations. 

With over 25 years’ experience in various sales and marketing roles, Karen has worked across many different sectors in direct and distribution sales, and in outsourced telemarketing.  She is an established trainer and mentor for many different groups including Skillnets, Local Enterprise Offices, Business Associations and educational bodies as well as a number of private clients

Karen understands that the key to a successful business is to think laterally and maximise opportunities when generating leads, and to make every contact feel special at all times.  Her delivery and style is very energetic, practical and interactive; with all examples focused around real life situations and business needs. 

The seminar will be of interest both  to those experienced in selling as a refresher and to those starting to get involved in sales.  Attendees can expect to take away a number of ideas to apply directly to this critically important area of their business.

All of our events have a networking dimension so you can avail of the chance to meet other consultants.   Attendance will contribute towards meeting your annual CPD requirement.

The workshop costs €20 for members and their guests, and €30 for non-members to include refreshments and free parking. Members can bring guests at the member rate.
