Networking Academy – Networking/Referral Generation @ The Microsoft Store (Roosevelt Field)
Mar 29 @ 8:15 am – 9:45 am

Welcome to the E.N.N.A. (Elephant Networking - Networking Academey) where each month we are bringing an invaluable lesson and actionable plan to help you acheive more results through your sales and networking efforts. These classes are geared towards anyone in sales and business development who want to work smarter and not harder. Sales Managers and Team Leaders are also welcome.
Each month, veteran sales trainer Pete Fasulo of Sandler Training will be providing you with the same level of expert sales training and information Fortune 500 companies pay thousands for to elevate their sales teams' productivity. His experience and results are incredible and we highly reccomend reviewing the never ending amount of testimonials on his Linkedin page. Pete has received raving reviews from both sales professionals and managers from Metlife, Aflac, Comcast, Cablevision and Mass Mutual (just to name a few!)
We are also incorporating a business book club where each month, one of our veteran Elephant Networking members will be selected to choose the book we will read and discuss at the next meeting. This is an optional assignment but we find the old adage "Leaders Are Readers" to be true and the worst case scenario is that you will be a part of something unique and insightful.

Business Owners’ Lunch & Net At Ruth’s Chris Steak House @ Ruth's Chris Steak House
Apr 7 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Join a table comprised of local business owners at Ruth's Chris Steak House and enjoy some of the best cuisine while connecting over lunch. As business owners, we all experience similar frustrations and challenges (hiring the right people, firing the wrong ones, efficient technology solutions, accounting & billing, marketing & advertsising, healthcare & compliance, processes & procedures, recessions, growth and so much more!
Many times other business owners can relate and if we just tap into their brain trust we can save ourselves time, money and pain! Let's come together in the interest of being a resource to one another. Bring your biggest challenges, concerns and your thinking cap. We may just help each other get to that next level we all envision.
***All attendees recieve the attendee roster.*** $35/$45 at the door - includes lunch, soft drinks, tax & gratuity***
Please note, this is for business owners only - if you know a business owner who can benefit and would like to attend, you can register for them or email us their info and we will send them the link to sign up. We are micromanaging the process so that we maintain the integrity of the event.
