Integration - “What’s next?” IS the big question. How do business owners maximize on these connections and turn these contacts into viable prospects and eventually loyal clients?

Turn Every Introduction Into a Meaningful One

By Kuulei Stockman

 When meeting a prospective client, how often are people introduced by their job title? Almost always!

Our advice to other companies is: Network, network, network! Networking events can sometimes be a drag or down-right exhausting after some time. It is not about the quantity of people you meet at an event, but the quality of the relationships built. Take the time to genuinely get to know one or two people who you find interesting in some way and connect like two old friends.
