Duration: 1 hour
Host: Ian Summers
Are you in for something different?
There were lots of questions at the conclusion of each of Ian’s liveBook’s webinars and the format made it challenging for live Q & A. So… we decided to try something new, where most of the webinar hour will be about your questions. Here is how it will work. Ian will announce a topic a couple of weeks prior to the webinar. You are encouraged to send him (firstname.lastname@example.org) your questions around that topic no later than three days prior to the presentation date. Ian will open each webinar with a ten-minute presentation. He will focus on a selection of your submitted questions for the rest of the meeting and will take additional questions and observations via the webinar’s chat tool. That’s why we call it a Focused Forum.
Focused Forum Topic This Month:
Networking: A Powerful Tool in This Economy
The more people who know about you, your talents and your abilities, the more easily you will attract the opportunities, assignments, resources, people, ideas, money and results that you really want!
Be a Resource: Put the people in your network in touch with each other. The value you offer to the other person is the network you bring to the relationship. This creates a much strong positive impression.
Host your own Network: Start your own group. I have a client in Phoenix who hosts salons for creators from a variety of fields and backgrounds every month. There are seats for only 12 people who clamor to register because it is so valuable and lots of fun. It also provides an opportunity for each person to network.
Rep Darwin Bahm was the master of this kind of networking. He would invite art directors to join him for dinner and a basketball game. It was a great way to meet the people Bahm represented along with a few other art directors. Why not break bread?
