Building Relationships that Pay in 2014

Presented by Charisse Witherspoon

Surveys indicate that, in general, businesses fared well in 2013 and anticipate doing even better in 2014. Advancing business relationships is becoming increasingly important in this era of productive (or distracting) social media, networking events and increased competition.


You already know that people buy from those they know and like. This session will provide information and examples that show readily applicable techniques for -- and benefits of -- strategically planning and working on different types of business relationships, including:


  • establishing business relationship goals
  • selecting your targets
  • developing your 2014 plan
  • maintaining your distinctions
  • evaluating your results
