Are you ready to get more of what you want and need in business and life? Then, The Answer is Yes But First You Have to Ask, will make your business more productive, your relationships more fulfilling, knowledge more accessible, and possibilities more frequent.

Expecting others to give you what you want instead of going after it yourself is like waiting for the rain to fill your swimming pool.

STOP WAITING … START ASKING.

Jim has spoken at Fairleigh Dickinson University, Montclair State University, and the New School, as well as to numerous corporations, among them Merrill Lynch, RE/MAX, Tetra Pack, and Pfizer, and to groups at public and private events. He also conducts seminars, most notably "The Answer is Yes, But First You Have to Ask."

Jim earned a BA in monetary economics from Ricker College in Maine. After a two-year stint in army, Jim joined the advertising sales department at The New York Times and later applied his selling skills as a financial advisor with E.F. Hutton. He went on to a successful 20-year career with Merrill Lynch, serving as a vice president and top financial advisor. Seeking to share his knowledge and expertise, Jim spent time at the Dale Carnegie Training Company, where he immersed himself in the sales and training process. The experience ignited his entrepreneurial spark, and he established his own professional development consulting business in 2001. In 2012 Jim authored his first book, The Answer is Yes But First You Have to Ask. For more information about Jim, see www.jimcharette.com

Jason Sanders,
“Present Yourself with Power: Use Your Personal Story to Succeed in Every Conversation”

Have you ever felt like your capabilities went unrecognized because the person you were talking to “just didn’t get it?” Do you want to present yourself more effectively and powerfully? If so, you must be able to present yourself in a clear, impactful way. You may have a fantastic background and a terrific company, but once you start the conversation you must be able to clearly convey your strengths. Don’t let all of your great experience and capabilities go unrecognized!

By the time you leave our workshop, you will have developed a message template that you will use to begin build relationships. You will practice right in the room and have a ton of fun while learning!

 In this Personal Networking Plan Workshop you will:

  • Translate the key skills that you have already acquired and communicate them passionately and effectively.
  • Express your personal brand that relies on your personal history and accomplishments.
  • Increase your impact on business executives, network contacts, recruiters and advisors.
  • Improve your networking skills by learning how others perceive you.

Jason Sanders leads a recruiting practice that has placed million-dollar executives for global firms, such as: Deloitte, Accenture, Ernst & Young, and Bain & Company. Over the past 20 years, he has helped thousands of professionals transition into new roles.
