Workshops for Career Development and Business Development

Improve your Networking, Branding, Marketing, Communication and Presentation Skills


Are you ready to put some spark into your networking this summer?

The Red Hot Summer Series ~ Networking Workshops

Why do you need to improve your networking skills?

Your network is the foundation for your success –  in business and in life. No one succeeds alone. When you know how to build  strategic long-term relationships, you can access whatever and whoever you need.

  • Keeping your head down and hiding in your office won’t get you promoted
  • A stale intro and a boring elevator pitch won’t help you meet VIPs
  • Submitting endless resumes and cold cover letters online won’t land you a new job

Learn how to network, the Fireball way!  You’ll be surrounded by smart, supportive, wonderful people who will help you succeed in whatever you do.
