Learn the fundamentals of in-person networking and gain the skills you need to build professional relationships.
As a freelancer, the success of your business depends on people remembering you when they need services. Without a memorable introduction, how will potential clients remember you from the hundreds of people they meet? If you simply start with “I am a translator” or “I am an interpreter,” how are you differentiating yourself from the thousands of others out there? And, if you don’t quickly establish a connection, why would they do business with you versus another translator or interpreter?
By setting up a game plan—and learning an effective approach to build interest, find common ground, and make yourself memorable—you can increase your “return on networking” and supercharge your ATA63 experience.
You will learn how to:
- Create an intriguing introduction with a “why” message that makes you memorable
- Develop a networking game plan that plays to your strengths
- Make use of proven tools and techniques to increase your confidence
About the Presenters
Alyce Blum grew up wanting to be a flight attendant because it spoke to her passion for connecting with people and hearing their stories, not to mention the joy of building relationships over food. However, her journey working for the legal industry and the Canadian government led to a career as a business coach where teaching people how to connect satisfied her passion. In 2021, Alyce partnered with Keith Bailey and founded Articulated Intelligence, a communications up-leveling firm focused on making human interactions more interesting, enjoyable, and memorable.
Keith Bailey has had a passion for public speaking since delivering a book report in the fourth grade. From the hospitality industry to global corporate sales, he subsequently learned the power of storytelling for profit, influence, and fun. After 16 years as a coach, 8+ years as a Toastmaster, and ongoing involvement in the National Speakers Association, Keith co-founded Articulated Intelligence, a communication up-leveling firm where With 1 Word®—a gamified storytelling technique to up the communication game and help prevent unintentional audience abuse—was developed.
