Community Workshop: Business Development

The Frontier | 800 Park Offices Drive | RTP, NC Jul 18 8:30 am - Jul 18 9:30 am

Workshop Topic

Business Development: Turning Connections into Customers

Course Overview

Have you ever been to a networking event or met someone but didn't consider them to be a potential customer? Did you ever think I just spent all this time but didn't make a single sale? Or you see a potential client or customer but couldn't make that face to face connection?

This session demystifies the business development process -- which is often confused with sales. We untangle the confusion of selling and business development with a hands-on, live workshop showcasing simple techniques that you can start using right after the session to grow your clientele and foster partnerships to grow your business.
