At their heart, conferences are day-long networking events. Are you ready to answer one of the most important questions you will be asked: “What do you do?” Have you perfected your elevator pitch?

With conference season fast approaching, Ira will help you get ready. He will share a three-step framework (part of his overall System of Credibility) you can use at any event to inspire others to say, “wow! Tell me more.”

Join us for a hands-on program to help you build stronger relationships, faster.
