Topic: 5 Steps to Giving and Receiving Higher Quality Referrals

Speaker; Maile Collmer, Founder of The Referral Studio and Master Referral Coach for Asentiv® Contra Costa


Whether you are a job seeker or a fractional CFO, a consultant or a small business owner everyone hopes to get quality referrals. Referrals that actually develop into a real job possibility or client engagement.

As a job seeker, there are several benefits to receiving a referral for a job opening. A referral shows that someone believes in your skills and qualifications, which can increase your credibility and give you a competitive advantage over other candidates. A referral can often expedite the hiring process, as companies are more likely to give priority to referred candidates. Referred candidates are often viewed as more trustworthy and a safer bet for the company. Receiving a referral can help you expand your professional network and potentially open up new career opportunities.

Have you ever received a “referral” that felt more like a “lead”? How do you get your network to send you higher quality referrals? 

Whether you are a job seeker, a fractional CFO or a consultant you want referrals to people who will be great employers or clients and are ready to talk to you about your services.

Join master referral coach, Maile Collmer, as she reveals the 5 Steps to Giving and Receiving Higher Quality Referrals. You will learn:
- What gaps your network is missing in their referral conversations.

- How to make giving you referrals easier, so your network will send you more!

- Insight on who can send you the consistent high-quality referrals you really want.

- As a bonus, you will become a great referral giver! Your network will thank you for the amazing referrals you will give them!

If you want to know how to get more business or more job referrals from your networking efforts, this session is a must!
