Developing Corporate Relationships that Win you Contracts

Presented by Dr. Shawne Duperon of ShawneTV So here's the thing... You get certified. You attend events. You get registered in those (confusing and time-sucking) supplier diversity web portals, you call the "connection." You call that corporate rep again. And then again. And nothing. Nada. You're struggling to get your foot in the door and it seems every time you make an attempt to work with a corporation, the door doesn't just slam, it won't even squeak open. So what gives? In this webinar, Dr. Shawne Duperon of ShawneTV shares the real deal about relationship building with corporations. She's the first to admit she did everything wrong for several years. Yes, several years. It wasn't until she found a corporate mentor to help her navigate these busy, complicated and exhausting large contract relationships. Join Dr. Shawne and she helps you navigate deepening (or starting) your corporate relationships to large contracts, applying the same relationship skills that garner her a social reach of up to 120 million per month. After this webinar, you'll engage in the WBENC national conference this July, with authentic strategies that build long-term relationships and contracts. Click here to register
