Greg’s presentation at the Central Michigan Purchasing Conference in November provided great insights for attendees. Not only were there tips for professional networking, Greg also demonstrated the same tips can be used at home at well. Greg’s presentation was a great way to kick-off the conference that eased tensions associated with a large group of professionals who do not know each other! On top of a great presentation, Greg also provides on-going support and useful information to help reinforce the concepts learned during his presentation. I would recommend Greg to speak at any meeting or conference.

I had the privilege of attending one of Greg’s sessions at one of our Association events. His professionalism shined from the instant I met him. However his talent extends much further, and was exemplified in his keynote speech regarding networking. Greg made a topic that often seems boring, dry, and overdone very exciting, personal and interactive. Our group was laughing, conversing and building relationships just minutes into the presentation. Many participants stayed after the meeting networking as a result of the seed he was able to plant upon them. It is obvious that the lessons Greg brought to our group will stay at the forefront of their personal and professional life, and I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to witness his magic!
Greg presented his ‘Creating Connections with Success’ program to our team of 20 advisors. We found his content and tactics to be relevant and useful, and his delivery to be engaging and with energy.
One of the prime benefits provided by the Waterford Area Chamber of Commerce is the opportunity to network with fellow members but it doesn’t always come natural for everyone. Especially younger professionals new to the networking arena! Understanding how to network, building confidence and proven techniques is critical for business growth. At a recommendation from one of our members, we contacted Greg Peters, the “Reluctant Networker” to speak at one of our lunch and learn gatherings. Wow! Not only did Greg provide the attendees with a number of systems to improve their results, he also dealt with networking topics that most people leave out, such as how to perform follow-up and how to ask for referrals. We heard several comments on how he had opened their eyes to a new way of networking and many of the attendees were already talking about using the tools at the next business gathering. If you would like to bring up the level of networking at your group, have them listen to what Greg has to offer.
I had the good fortune of attending one of Greg’s networking seminars as part of the Michigan Shifting Gears program. Whenever I attend such seminars, I hope to have at least one “golden nugget” takeaway. Regarding business networking, Greg’s highly enlightening and engaging session allowed me walk away with a wheelbarrow full of golden nuggets. His common sense suggestions can be easily implemented. I strongly recommend Greg’s effectively interactive training style.
Many of the attendees of ExecuNet meetings, despite years in their industries, feel awkward and uncomfortable with the process of networking. I brought Greg in to teach them some simple techniques and tips to help them get out of their own way. His interactive program let the participants work with each other to practice specific techniques. Beyond the tactics he taught, he also asked great questions to get them thinking critically about their current efforts. I am very pleased with the results of the program. I received excellent feedback from the group. Many said they were looking forward to applying their new skills to their job search. If you want to inspire your organization, bring Greg in as a speaker or trainer. You won’t be disappointed!
