As a consultant, you often believe that you are hired primarily for your technical expertise.? But actually it’s more complicated than that.? Your clients do indeed want your technical expertise, but they also want to work with you in a positive, productive, and amicable way.? That means you must have good communication skills.? It means that you have to connect with your customers on a level that builds rapport.
And it’s become clear to the successful consultant members in IEEE-Consultants Network of Silicon Valley (CNSV) that effective communication is critical to your success as a consultant.? That’s why they are co-sponsoring this event.? Here is your chance to get even more successful than you already are by improving your communication skills.
Join Steven Cerri, engineer, consultant, trainer and coach to engineers, on June 12 at KeyPoint Credit Union, for a morning of communication training.
In this class, you will learn…
1.? how to build natural rapport
2.? how to connect with your potential clients so they feel comfortable with you
3.? how to motivate your customer to tell you their actual needs and expectations

The workshop will be held at the KeyPoint Credit Union (2805 Bowers Ave., Santa Clara), and laptops are not required.
1.? This workshop registration ends at midnight on June 11, 2009.? Sorry, no walk-ins.
