Celebrate Networking! returns for third year
In February, around the globe, organizations, businesses and individuals will be partaking in International Networking Week. To coincide with this global event, the Chamber and Business Network International have teamed up for the third year to put on an event that celebrates the importance of networking right here in Cincinnati USA.
Celebrate Networking is set for Wednesday, February 8, 8-10 a.m., at the Millennium Hotel downtown.
Attendees will walk away with an expanded circle of influence and new contacts, best practices and networking strategies, potential service providers and business partners, and so much more.
Keynote speaker and motivational humorist, John Wagner, known as “Wags,” will share insights into recognizing the outskirts of your comfort zone and learning to give yourself permission to engage. Attendees will also learn to receive by the act of giving and to manage anxiety and fear to promote positive behaviors that will lead to positive outcomes.
Wags is a licensed clinical counselor and a certified laughter leader. His “Seriously Funny” speeches, workshops and breakouts are enlightening, empowering and entertaining! One of his key messages: happiness! “SMILE. Smiling changes you inside and out and demonstrates your openness to others. Smiling enhances your face value. If you don't feel like smiling, then fake it till you make it.”
Back by popular demand this year, attendees will be able to attend an optional workshop, Referral Success 101, to follow Celebrate Networking from 10:15-11:30 a.m. given by the Referral Institute Cincinnati. This interactive session will teach participants how to dramatically increase the referrals they give and receive.
Sam Pinello, of Buddy’s Carpet, says:
“I came to this meeting when I first arrived in the Cincinnati area. While networking, I closed a flooring job worth $10,000. I believe that if you would attend this meeting and see first hand what this could do for you, you would become a member of the Cincinnati Chamber and BNI!”
