4 steps to becoming a cross-cultural connector
1. Upgrade Networking Skills and Strategies
Develop YOUR Customized Approach to Networking
We’ve designed and tested techniques for each step in the networking process so you don’t have to. But success only comes by consistently getting feedback from yourself and others to fine tune your approach. Our sessions take you through the strategy steps and then practice applying the skills and tools before leaving the event. It doesn’t get any easier than that!
Transform the skills needed to build an influential network by…

2. Establish New Connections
Meet More of the RIGHT People in LESS Time
Meeting new people becomes a lot more fun when the pressure is off and you’re able to be yourself. We find its easier to ask thoughtful questions to drive conversations towards common interests instead of regurgitating a 60 second elevator pitch. We make meeting influential people simple, fast and fun.
