1 day Creating Positive & Profitable Relationships through Networking - Connect for Successful Business Impact

Trust is a critical element in our ability to influence people, and achieve the positive outcomes we desire, isn't it? And according to Eric Schmidt, the Executive Chair of Google, "Trust is the most important currency in a networked world".

Yet "Trust" can only happen inside a relationship. So those people who are able to quickly create relationships with others, already hold a critical advantage over you.

Research suggests that those who find it hard to connect, come to fear the consequences of trying. Those fears build to become insurmountable obstacles; they’ll hold you back.

And though those fears are real, they are founded on two things; uncertainty and rejection. These are two aspects that can easily be overcome through skilful training.

This Workshop therefore takes an emotionally intelligent approach to creating relationships. Our focus considers the emotional side of networking, and examines the mindset to minimise the likelihood of rejection.

You'll minimise the risks & uncertainties associated with connecting too, by bringing clarity to networking processes and protocols. Having a "game plan" will liberate you to perform more comfortably, effectively, and, confidently.

The bottom line is that you'll come to trust yourself when networking, which means others will come to trust you too.
Workshop Objectives
Our intentions are to develop your ability to enhance collaboration, by strengthening your ability to connect with people and create positive relationships.

You'll gain confidence in the processes & protocols used for effective networking. You'll quickly be able to draw on them when meeting new people, and make connections succeed.

Emotional intelligence sits well at the heart of this soft skills Workshop, as it helps you understand others, as well as create positive impressions in their minds when connecting.
Workshop Outlines
  • Appreciating the power of body language
  • Donning appropriate conversational body language
  • Developing a personal, effective, and, memorable introduction
  • Exploring what might hold you back when building new relationships
  • Understanding what networking is, and the need for a networking mindset
  • Navigating a room with confidence, making swift and smooth connections
  • Practising the most relevant protocols that confident connectors use
  • Discovering what to say when joining and leaving a conversation
  • Managing rapport in ways that make people feel comfortable
  • Building the basis for collaborative relationships with others
Facilitation Approach for Learning
This is an experiential Workshop, which emphasises engagement, interaction, and practice. Participants should expect short presentations that introduce content, experiential activities for skills practise, and group discussions for reflection that deepens their learning.
Who Should Attend This Workshop?
This one-day Workshop is designed for all people at all levels who feel uncomfortable when connecting, and who wish to create deeper, more productive, more collaborative relationships using networking.

Your Workshop Facilitator: Mr. Patrick O'Brien, CMgr
With a constant appetite for change, Patrick came to realise one very important thing: it's the People that matter in business, personal development and growth counts. His learning delivery approach therefore focuses on building those important soft skills. Training thus scaffolds atop three firm foundations.

First, for learning to stick, it needs to be fun; enjoyment & engagement are precursors to absorption & adoption. Next, for learning to be relevant, it has to be real; it needs collaboration, openness, and a little intensity. Finally, for learning to be desirable, it must match expectations; it has to substantially deliver what it says "on the tin".

Patrick therefore designs Workshop experiences that masterfully combine Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) with a deep Coaching mentality. Both are invitingly interlaced using Improvisational techniques. His diverse background and experience also allow him to facilitate inclusive and valuable learning moments. These are highly engaging, empowering, and, enjoyable.

His life's journey has straddled different countries and cultures in Ireland, England, New Zealand and Singapore. He has worked his way through a variety roles, from individual contributor to Managing Director, in the corporate world. And, he has built considerable business experience along the way in working across sectors such as government, technology, manufacturing, finance, consulting, aviation, telecommunications and the Internet.

His formal education is well rounded: Honours in IT, Masters in Marketing, and MBA in Finance. He is also a "Master Practitioner" of NLP, and an enthusiastic author with Articles regularly appearing in the local media. In whatever form you experience his work, you'll always feel his curiously cheerful sense of enjoyment; it shines through.

Patrick is an active member of many international Professional bodies, such as the Chartered Management Institute, the Chartered Institute of Marketing and the Institute of Directors. He is proud to be one of only a very small handful of "Chartered Managers" in Asia.

With a warm Irish wit, a love of the "craic" and a big beaming smile, audiences in over twenty-five countries have found his disarmingly unpretentious and conversational approach to learning, to be refreshing and rewarding experiences
