Networking Events' Seminar Topics

Seminar: The Best of Both Worlds Presenting Tips Online and Face to Face
Presenter - Sonya O'Sullivan

We have all had to learn and fast! how to showcase our business and its benefits to potential clients by speaking online as well as face to face.  Some of us are now more comfortable speaking virtually, we feel safe in our own environments, whereas others cant wait to return to the energy and vibe of the networking room.  How do you make the Best of Both Worlds?

  • You get back what you give out ? how to be the perfect guest?  Zettiquette (online etiquette)
  • Exploring the differences between the two platforms ? and the barriers you may need to overcome?
  • Tips on visual aids and attention grabbers both online and F2F
  • Sharing Tools and Tips on how to hold your audiences attention both online and F2F. 
  • Keeping it concise and confident – Turn Up, Speak Up, Shut Up!

Having been an associate of the Professional Speakers Assoc. for many years and with 20 years business skills training experience, Sonya uses her knowledge and experience to deliver empathetic and encouraging presentation/public speaking programmes and coaching sessions.    From people so terrified of presenting that they cant catch their breath to more seasoned performers wanting to hone their skills, Sonya has helped literally hundreds of people to become more confident and competent at presenting and public speaking.

What our
members say...

I happily renewed my membership with The Business Network South Manchester yesterday hosted by Simon & Win. Why? It's structured, director level networking which works for me and the kind of businesses I want to be introduced to. Plus there's an amazing extended network I have access to... With a couple of contacts i have met in the group we're working on developing what will be the biggest production project of my career so far. Renewing was a bit of a no-brainer....

The Business Network South Manchester, run by Win and Simon Edmondson is just brilliant! Win and Simon create a friendly, non-threatening and relaxed environment in which you meet other business owners and decision makers who are interested in helping all the members of the group to grow their businesses and introduce you to others they know. The meeting does have a structure but it isn’t a rigid format and the pre-lunch educational seminars attract a great range of speakers who are always informative. All in all, the meeting is fun! And that is why I have been a member of the group for several years and will continue to do so. Oh and yes I have got new business from being a member. A business networking group which is relaxed and fun and does what is says it will do!
