Our Next Meeting’s Speaker…

October 15 | Pitching Your Passion: Networking at ABWA

Cathy Jennings, Chief Conversation Starter, No Pressure Networking

Pitching Your Passion: Networking at ABWA

How do you get people interested in your business without being too pushy or salesy? Effective networking is much more than simply reciting a 30-second sales pitch to everyone you meet! Come and learn how to start a conversation that truly connects with others and inspires them to learn more about you and your business. Participants will learn how to craft compelling introductions and conversation inspirations that will have your audience craving to know more.

Cathy Jennings is a self-described situational extrovert and the chief conversation starter for No Pressure Networking. She loves teaching women entrepreneurs and professionals how to put some personality and profit into their connecting—by leveraging their face-to-face meetings and the power of social media as relationship marketing and business-building tools. Cathy is a graduate of Grove City College, a certified career coach through Career Coach Institute, and the coauthor of two books: Make Your Connections Count: Networking Know-How to Make Your Business Thrive and Inspired Entrepreneurs: A Collection of Female Triumphs in Business and in Life. She is an avid blogger and social media enthusiast and can often be found online connecting, sharing and creating opportunities at www.NoPressureNetworking.com.
