Location : Microsoft Technology Center – Lincoln Square North
Address : 700 Bellevue Way NE, Floor 22 Bellevue

Date - 03/31/2017
2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Speaker: Nikki Rausch, Sales Maven

About the Event

Let go of hesitation and learn straight forward techniques to communicate with clients and prospects powerfully, with ease and authenticity. In this interactive workshop, you’ll learn to:

  • Stop wasting time sending emails that never get read or responded to
  • Increase your overall email response rate significantly
  • Move from email communication into actual conversations with prospects and clients
  • Ask for referrals that lead to your ideal client(s)
  • Raise your credibility and influence within your community/network


Participants are encouraged to bring up to 5 examples of your current email messages and you’ll be able to immediately apply what you learn to write more effective emails. With Nikki’s help, you’ll be able to develop sample scripts to put your new tools into action.

Nikki will also guide you through a simple exercise on developing your network. You’ll have the opportunity to create a list of contacts and tailored messaging to ask for targeted referrals. No more putting off asking for referrals – you’ll have the messaging ready!

You’ll leave the session ready to put these techniques to work to help your business soar in 2017!
