Guest Presentation

In addition to a time of festivities and networking, we will be having a guest presentation by Angela Inzerillo of Impact Business Solutions, LLC. She will be educating us on “Getting Quality Leads from your Circle of Influence.”

One of the best and most leveraged ways to generate leads is by using your Circle of influence (COI), that is, people with whom we interact on a regular basis. Because people are more likely to do business with the people they know and trust or with people recommended by a friend or family member, these relationships are vital to our success.

During this presentation, you will learn how to turn the top people within your COI into quality referrals ‐ EVERY time! We will also help you create your "Ideal Client" profile, and explain why this is critical. Learn to improve your referral rate based on "quality" not "quantity." You will get to try your new skills almost immediately!

About Angela Inzerillo:

Angela is the Co-Founder of Impact Business Solutions LLC, a sales and marketing training and consulting firm based in Northern Virginia.  Focused on lead generation and conversion, her company gives small business owners the strategy, system and support they need to get results fast.
