Networking 101 Luncheon – Frederick, CO

Networking is building relationships on the basis of trust that involves a give and take. 

Networking is not a mere exchange of business cards at a cocktail party nor is it bragging about yourself or begging for help from people you barely know. Networking is building relationships on the basis of trust that involves a give and take. 

This workshop is designed to help you learn about and brush up on your networking skills to help you grow and promote yourself and your business!

You’ll learn real-life tools and tips for…

  • Making small talk
  • Working the room
  • What to do with the Energy Vampires and Drama Queens
  • The Do’s and Don’t’s of food and drinks
  • To-do’s after the event to supersize your business

This fun and interactive workshop presented by Chalice Springfield, CEO and Managing Broker of Sears Real Estate, promises that you will leave with more confidence and understanding about the value and power of networking in your day-to-day business! 

Please join the East Colorado SBDC, Carbon Valley Chamber of Commerce and Sears Real Estate for this Networking 101 Luncheon.

Lunch will be provided by the Chamber and is included in the $12.00 admission fee.

Presented by: Chalice Springfield, Sears Real Estate

Chalice Springfield started at Sears Real Estate at the age of 19 when she answered an ad on an old index card on the job board at the University of Northern Colorado to work in the mailroom. After earning her bachelor’s degree at UNC, while working full-time at Sears Real Estate, she plunged into the world of real estate where she still finds herself some 25 years later! Today, she is delighted to be CEO/Managing Broker of Sears Real Estate. She has sold real estate, worked in the mortgage and title industries, and currently manages over 50 people (she calls it “herding cats!”).

Hudson: Marketing Your Brand

Strengthen your brand with your marketing strategy.

Building a brand is a challenge for anyone who has started a company or is working to grow it.

Business branding is often a much bigger process, meaning long hours and massive budgets to successfully grow your business. Not every new brand is able to rely on a massive marketing budget.

This seminar will show you how to work to build your brand effectively, especially when resources are scarce. We will show you how to communicate your brand, how to drive the brand to your target audience and how to give your brand a lasting identity.
