Connext Nation- Building A Referal Community
Debby Peters, owner and founder of the Connext Nation course, describes her course as a way for sales people to smile again! She mentions that even though it is sales training, it’s not the usual, as it is focused on how to gain more referrals.
Recently at an event where there was a large group of new graduates of the Connext Nation course, they were asked, “What would you tell someone if you were recommending the course to them?” The answers were very different from what Debby says above!
A travel agent said, “I look at it as Business 101 and I know that it’s not intended to be that, but it sure helped me to understand that there was a process to all this and as a result, my business has shot ahead.” Another grad, said that she learned sales from her father who had been is sales all his life. What she didn’t realize until she went through the course, was that she was continuing to sell when she thought she was networking…and it didn’t work out very well for her. Now she knows why!
Debby offers the opportunity for others to get a taste of the 11 week course, with a two hour Mini course. It gives just a few of the topics that will be taught in the class. The next one is Feb 10 from 11am – 1 pm at the Giant Eagle Conference Room on Center Ridge Road in Rocky River. The 11 week course begins Feb 24 at the same time and same location.

I can personally vouch for the effectiveness of Debby’s course because I was part of the last graduating class just before Christmas. I considered myself a good networker even before I took the course, but Debby taught me that there was still a lot to be learned. Using her techniques at a recent Chamber meeting landed me 2 new clients, which was a great return on my investment.
