How to Turn a Conversation into an Engagement

How often does a conversation or one of your presentations to a prospect spontaneously lead to: "When can you start?" or "Do you accept credit cards?" We're guessing your answer is somewhere between rarely and never.

Let's face it. We can help many more companies than just the ones who hire us. Let's also face it... There is probably something we are doing or failing to do that is contributing to that. Unfortunately, by definition, you can't see a blind spot.

At our March 20 IMC meeting, that is going to change forever.

You will discover your blind spots, how and where you are getting in your own way and in the way of getting hired more frequently and how to overcome them.

You will also learn the secret to getting through to prospects, clients and absolutely anyone.

Introverted or not, you will also come out of your shell in this highly interactive presentation and learn from our presenter, Dr. Mark Goulston, but more importantly from each other. So when you come, be prepared to share some of your secrets with each other. That is what the spirit of IMC is about.
