  • Seminar Hall, How NOT to Get Referrals, Andy Lopata
    With growing competition and more demands on budgets, it's becoming harder and harder to win new business. Yet still so many sales people and business owners leave potential new revenues untapped and unexplored. The reason is very simple. Across a range of industries, referral strategies range from tired and predictable to passive to simply non-existent. A large number of businesses become complacent when it comes to referrals and simply expect them to appear. Networking is still treated as a skill, not a core business strategy. Where referrals strategies do exist they tend to be lazy, poorly timed and ineffective. As a result, potential new business simply goes elsewhere. In this talk, Andy will share with you the key mistakes he sees practised by so many unsuccessful companies time and time again. The mistakes that ensure that they don't get anywhere near as many referrals as they should.
