GWIN Meeting Recap: January Meeting Highlights & 50/50 Raffle Winners
The first meeting of the New Year was on January 2nd, 2018. The Guelph Women in Networking came together for an evening of positivity and laughter all around. At this meeting we were graced by six guests and a new member, Judy Roeder, along with charming business women and members. Christine Bretherick presented her business bio, “Why Creativity Matters”. Our guest speaker for the evening was Gary Ford who spoke about “Life Is Sales”. We learned through Gary’s interesting talk and interactive sales workshop that life is getting what you want and sales skills can improve your life. He explained three important points: a) The Power of Persuasion – is getting what you asked for. b) Reciprocity Principle – how we are obligated to give back the same form of behavior that was first given to us and c) using the Principle of Concessions for getting the referrals by using the right words. We realized that we get so absorbed in daily jobs and miss the details, “big black guerrilla,” in the sales process.
On the first Tuesday of the month, The Guelph Women in Networking came together for another wonderful evening filled with wonderful conversation and an excellent meal. As always thank you to Springfield Golf and Country Club for your amazing hospitality.
