Our February meeting will take on a new format in a new location. Together with VentureMeets, we will be at the Compass Tavern, 90 Harding Street in Worcester. Starting with networking at 6 p.m., the meeting will feature guest speaker Dr. Nancy Zare at 7. She will speak on decoding personality styles to build rapport and make more sales. The evening will also include up to five one-minute pitches from selected entrepreneurs presented between additional networking sessions.
Dr. Zare holds a Ph.D. from Boston College in Social Work, and is certified in sales training and accelerated learning. She specializes in helping sales professionals and business owners quickly convert prospects into paying clients. A retired professor from Springfield College, she is the founder of Rapport Builderz International, which advises clients on how to develop long-term, profitable business relationships by raising their “AlikeAbility” quotient 300 percent.
The meeting will have free admission and raffle tickets, free buffet and a cash bar. There is a coat check available at registration.
