Coffee is Good for Business: a special blend of networking @ The Offices of Fasken Martineau DuMoulin LLP
Nov 21 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Business is built on connections and relationships – not just texts, emails, likes or followers. Inviting someone for coffee can create new opportunities. If you do it right, the benefits can outweigh the ‘extra time’ it will take out of your day. Leave it up to chance, and all you’ll get is another debit on your coffee card.

This engaging and high energy session will provide you with specific tools and words to be able to “brew” your business:

        3 Reasons why Coffee Meetings are good for business.
The difference between “Instant”, “Decaf” and “Fully-leaded” Coffee Meetings
5 Points to keep your Coffee Meetings casual but controllable.
How to leverage your meetings to acquire clients, referrals and ultimately grow your business.

Implement this knowledge to set yourself apart from other ‘coffee dates’, make the most of your valuable time and get people talking about you and your business.
