Upgrade Masterclass: How to become a more effective and confident networker

In today's highly competitive world, being a confident and effective networker sets you apart from the crowd. You become more visible, in control and have the opportunity to create more career and business opportunities.

In this humorous presentation, award-winning professional speaker Will Kintish will help you overcome your fears and concerns, by:

  • divulging the secrets to help you destroy your fears of working the room;
  • helping you be in control, break the ice and start the conversation with strangers;
  • showing you how to approach the appropriate people, break into groups and move on with ease and consideration;
  • presenting you with ideas with what to talk about and how to be interesting;
  • spelling out a process for following up, ensuring you leave every event with a potential business opportunity; and
  • how to get the best when attending seminars and conferences.

With the ubiquitous use of social media, social networking and mobile devices, the quaint and old-fashioned face-to-face relationship is fast losing the communications race. Will speaks loudly that the old fashioned way still has to be the best for building rapport, and during his career has shown thousands in the academic, professional and financial communities how to become more effective and confident networkers.

Will has been awarded the Professional Speaking Award of Excellence, the highest accolade available in the speaking profession. Whether he runs workshops, speaks online, or gives keynote speeches he communicates with passion, enthusiasm and lots of humour.
