Coffee Connections - Topical Conversations

Thursday, March 18 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am • Organized By Mid-America LGBT Chamber of Commerce
Online Event


Pour a good cup of coffee and settle in at your desk or kitchen table for a good time connecting with new and old friends discussing interesting topics. In addition to everyone getting a short opportunity to share the latest happenings in their business, we are going to discuss something many of us deal with in both our professional and personal lives:



Many say that business is sales and they just might be right. Selling is to business as education is to knowledge.

·    What is selling?

·    Do we sell only services and products?

·    Does your business or job involve sales?

·    How good of a salesperson are you? Why/why not?

·    What makes a good salesperson?

·    What strategies do you think work best for sales?

We often learn best from our peers so we want you to share what your challenges and best practices are around these questions. 

Attendees will receive their login information as part of their registration.
