Total Exposure Networking sponsored by Speaking Of Success @ Sprout CoWorking Providence
Oct 15 @ 5:30 PM – 8:00 PM

This month’s TEN sponsor is Speaking of Success, LLC. I have a new workshop coming up at the end of October that I am really jazzed about, and I will be telling you all about it (and offering special pricing to those in attendance). The workshop is “Getting Noticed in a Digital Age – Storytelling for Business”, and I will be giving you a sneak peek. I hope you can make it – should be a great night of networking!

At most networking events you’re lucky if you get to talk to 9 or 10 people. Even then, are you delivering your message or just talking about the weather or the latest news headlines? At Total Exposure Networking (TEN), we make sure that you get to deliver your pitch to everyone in the room! Our unique TEN format consists of starting out with food, drink, and general conversation. Then, when everyone is there, we pick 5 people, and they each have one minute to give their pitch to everyone in the room. Now for the good part – we then take 10 minutes to allow anyone to talk with those who just spoke to ask questions, learn more, and make appointments. Then, we pick 5 more and do it again, and again, using the 5/10 format until everyone has had the opportunity to deliver their pitch to everyone in the room! A perfect TEN!

Getting Noticed in an Age of Distraction – Storytelling for Business @ Sprout CoWorking Providence
Oct 29 @ 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM

A story gives people a reason to care about what you are saying. We are living in a post-advertizing world. Millennials are especially numb to the traditional hype of the tired advertising model. Your product, your brand, your company needs to create social empathy with your prospective clients.

Getting noticed in an age of distraction is extraordinarily difficult, but capturing and holding attention with the right story will do the trick. You just have to know how to do it.

In this two-hour workshop, we will look at:

  • Why storytelling is so important
  • What happens to our listeners when we tell them a story
  • The dynamics and building blocks of a successful story
  • How to build your own story

If you are wondering why your traditional sales and marketing tactics are not delivering the ROI you expected, or you want to engage and connect with the up and coming affluent millennial generation, this is the workshop for you.
