    To help curate a stellar 30-second intro that sizzles, Kim Niskey, Business Development Director for Garner Chamber of Commerce and WBON member has provided a resource video to help! Click on video to learn more.

     REGISTER NOW and you’ll get the opportunity to say a 30-second company introduction about your business to everyone there and compete for prizes!

    To help you develop a 30-second introduction that “sizzles”, we have provided some resources provided by Kim Niskey, Business Development Director for the  Garner Chamber and a WBON member:

    First, please watch the very short video inserted above about some tips by Kim Niskey of what to include in a 30-second introduction so that it catches people’s attention, persuades them to pay attention and convinces them to want to learn more about your product or service. You will also see an excellent example of an introduction. The training starts after the first 30 seconds.

     We look forward to seeing you on June 12th!
