Power Schmoozing On and Off-line

It’s Not What You Know, It’s Who You Know

Networking and word of mouth advertising are the most cost-effective, misunderstood forms of marketing today. Turn every member of your park and recreation staff, board or commission into walking, talking “Ambassadors” for your department. This program’s focus will be on beginning and building ongoing win-win relationships with current and future community leaders and patrons. Learn how to get more out of every meeting, seminar and conference -- including this one!
