Getting Past Hello!™
Networking is my thang. It can be yours, too.
Let's Take a Quick Quiz:
The thought of attending a networking event, meeting new people, and trying to make a meaningful connection with those people makes me want to:
A: Move to Mars
B: Stay home and reorganize my sock drawer
C: Buy more lottery tickets in the hopes of hitting it big for an early retirement
D: All of the above!
Networking doesn't come naturally for most of us. As a matter of fact, it makes most of us want to curl up and stay home! Yet every savvy business person knows it is a critical component to our overall success. “Getting Past Hello!”™ is a totally unique, out-of-the box curriculum focusing on the art of creating lasting business relationships. In collaboration with Victoria Nessen of NK&A, together we have combined our more than 40 years of professional experience and developed a fresh and engaging program that gives people the necessary tools to take charge of any networking situation. Meeting people is one thing, taking those introductions to the next level and “Getting Past Hello!”™ is something else entirely. This truly interactive program can be customized for any audience: students, candidates re-entering the workforce, salesforces, management, new hires…the list is endless!
The Verdict is In!
“Miles in Heels’ Golden Rules for Getting Past Hello was the absolute perfect way to kick off our Women’s Leadership summer experiential experience. Kim is such a dynamic, energizing speaker that the students were absolutely glued to each of her words.
It was rated as one of the most effective sessions of the week, setting a solid foundation for the remaining events. The practical materials truly resonated with this audience, and for the rest of the week, I had the privilege of watching the students put their new found networking skills to work, meeting new people, sending fabulous thank you notes, and getting way, way past hello. I can't wait to work with Kim again, she is fabulous!”
