Believe it or not, every interaction is a “meeting.” This includes the follow-up call, the formal pitch meeting, the elevator pitch, and the networking event.

Most of us are dying to present ourselves professionally and effectively, yet we’re nervous, inexperienced, or intimidated. We feel that “schmoozing” is something we’re bad at or that it’s inauthentic, even a little slimy.

Fortunately there are tools you can use to ace the meeting, connect with your conversation partner, and present yourself powerfully, authentically, and genuinely every time!

This OnDemand webinar is led by entertainment career coach Shawn Tolleson.
