How to Access Opportunities through Strategic Networking: A Brainstorming Session

Thursday, April 25, 2019
4:00 PM - 6:15 PM

Please join the Washington Network Group when we convene a WNG brainstorming session with Lori Saitz, Founder of Zen Rabbit and a networking strategy guide for quiet business owners and professionals, and Bill Stokes, WNG Chairman and executive search consultant.

Lori and Bill will discuss networking best practices and moderate a brainstorming session with participants on successful networking strategies and tactics. Attendees will have an opportunity to pose questions and share insights. Participants will leave this session with practical advice for achieving better results from their overall networking efforts.

About Our Co-Moderators:

Lori Saitz

Back when Lori Saitz launched her first company and introduced the world to The Gratitude Cookie, she had to learn how to network effectively to find clients and referral sources. Today clients come to her because they fear they're missing out on opportunities - to find clients, get referrals, work on cool & interesting projects, get promoted, or hear about new jobs - because they don't have a strong network of connections. As a networking strategist and speaker, Lori works with business professionals on developing their networking abilities and creating long-term business relationships that support their success. In addition to her more than 25 years of experience in marketing and communications, Lori has worked as an on-air radio personality in South Florida. As the author of How to Feel Comfortable, Confident & Courageous at Networking Events, she is often interviewed in the media and regularly speaks to corporate teams and at conferences and events. When she's not networking or talking about networking, you can find Lori in the weight room at the gym or at a reformer Pilates class. Occasionally you might see her running or kickboxing, because she also loves eating and baking. Engage with her on LinkedIn, Facebook, or Instagram.
