Topic: Modern Business Manners & Networking Enrichment for Government Meeting Professionals

Looking for insight and fun ways to polish your modern business manners and professional networking skills? According to research, approximately 85% of job success is based on “soft skills,” while only 15% is based on technical knowledge. For government meeting professionals, effective soft skills will make the biggest impact in your relationship building success. Becoming a savvy networker offers you the power of stress-free positive interactions. During our session, you’ll gain practical knowledge to help you prepare for key interactions with planners, suppliers, colleagues and clients. You’ll walk away with a whole new level of soft skill intelligence about:

  • Networking Preparation
  • Proper Business Introductions
  • Mastering a Professional Handshake
  • Appropriate Body Language
  • Opening/Closing a Conversation
  • And More!
