Most of you know that I am a trainer at the International Coach Academy, and a huge fan of the program. If you're thinking about coach training, here is a must-attend event for you:
Join the International Coach Academy - the world's number 1 provider of coach training online - in our monthly "Spotlight on Coaching" free teleseminar. In our next Spotlight February 24th meet Kathy Munoz, ICF certified Executive Coach with over 25 years of experience in the corporate sector.
Find out from Kathy... -Who makes a great Executive coach? -What does it take to succeed in the Executive coaching profession? -What is the difference between Executive Coaching and Life Coaching? -What are the training and certification options?
So you're at yet another networking event. You walk into the room. People are everywhere. And then it happens. Someone comes right up to you and asks,
"So, what do you do?"
How do YOU answer that question? And even more important, what kind of response do you get?
If you don't hear, "Oh yeah? Tell me MORE!" virtually every time you tell someone what you do, then you don't have killer elevator speech. And honey, you need one!
You're invited to my next Killer Elevator Speech teleseminar on 2/24/09 at 4 p.m. (Pacific).
Untie that tongue, and let me help you explain exactly what you do and why someone should hire you -- or buy your products or services. I guarantee I can show you how to introduce yourself quickly, clearly and in such a way that attracts the clients or interest you want most.
So if you're ready for the reaction you want, or at least easier conversation openings at networking events, this teleseminar is for you.
What: How to Create a Killer Elevator Speech teleseminar
When: Tuesday, February 24, 2009 from 4-5 p.m. Pacific
