Back to the Future aka The Show Must Go On

Our speaker, Sheila Smith, will present “Cocktail School” with practical tips and tricks for professional service firms where networking and business development are key prerequisites for success. Honing and refreshing these skills are particularly relevant now as we return to events, conferences, social and business gatherings. Thousands of lawyers, financial advisors and lenders have attended Cocktail School and found the content helpful and fun.

This program will help to recalibrate, reinforce and refresh your techniques including topics such as:

  • Overcoming public speaking anxiety
  • Fine tuning your business development engine
  • Impactful messaging that makes you stand out in a crowd
  • Exiting and entering group conversations
  • Leveraging affinity groups

The goal is to enhance your ROI and perhaps learn how to make a Cosmopolitan
