As a freelancer, it’s important to continue to reach out for new business and build relationships. But how many of us are a little nervous when faced with a room full of strangers at a networking event? You may even be — dare we say it — an introvert.
Well, shyness be gone! You can stop worrying if you make it a point to attend our exciting and interactive August meeting. Emile Paradis, networker extraordinaire, will give us exceptional tools for preparing for an event, help us identify and approach our top prospects — and, most importantly, develop key relationships. Don’t miss this one! It can give you a whole new set of skills for new business development.

He is Managing Partner of the Referral Institute, which assists small businesses in identifying and connecting through strategic relationships.

No atmospheric pressure here! We network and socialize over sandwiches, spreads or pizza, catch up with new and old friends and introduce ourselves to first-time or frequent guests. Then we settle in for the night’s program and its follow-up Q&A.
Our programs always focus on running a creative business more successfully, with topics that address issues like fees, taxes, law, marketing, selling, interpersonal skills, business organization, technology and more. All to help you work smarter, faster, more efficiently and more profitably. So whether you’re just starting out or you’ve been at this for a while, you get no-fluff information tailored to your needs.
So join us for a meeting. Bring your questions. Hear that hot tip or horror story. And of course, share your own!
