Dial into the workshop 5 minutes before the start time. If you are late by more than 5 minutes after the start time, you will no longer have access.
You will each be asked to give 2 x 30 second introductions to a client. For authenticity, you must first choose a real account. Imagine you are meeting the new marketing director for the first time…
How would you explain what Greenhouse does, in the context of their business and the marketing director’s interests?
How would you introduce yourself, including your role on the account and relevant experience, in a way that sounds authentic and conversational?

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
BUSINESS RELATIONSHIP MANAGER
"Genuinely the most useful training session I have been on, thanks for your patience!”
ADVERTISING SOLUTIONS MANAGER
“That’s easily the best course I’ve been on in 9 years at eBay. A great combo of practical/applicable advice, and so well presented. Looked like there was a lot of work put into a custom course, and I thought it was totally worth it.”
“The workshop was ‘How to WOW!’ and she did just that. Aside from her perfect preparation for the course (she did her homework), she was able to turn a group of engineers into excellent presenters in 3 days! The course is fast paced, fun, informative, but most of all gives results.”
