Whether you’re a rookie seller paid on a formal commission plan, an entrepreneur struggling to find customers, or you’re  just trying to get your small business to the next level, knowing how to sell can be the difference between hitting your goals and shutting your doors. I’ll give you some techniques to battle call reluctance, strategies to handle rejection, and some ways to make sure you’re fully prepared for that crucial first meeting.

Doors open at 6 pm for networking and mingling. Light food is provided as well as a cash bar. The formal presentation as well as audience announcements takes place from 7:00-8:00 pm. You then have until 8:30 to introduce yourself to anyone whom you haven’t yet met and the event comes to an end at 8:30. Street parking is available.

Tickets can be purchased in advance here.

If you have any further questions about this event, contact Katie Kelley at or call (503) 616-6112.
