Art of the Schmooze
Forming and cultivating relationships is at the heart of any successful
fundraising campaign, volunteer drive, committee effort or community
building activity. This training will give you the confidence to pursue
your personal and professional goals - from the importance of shaking hands
and making eye contact, to tips on the best opening line and how to exit a
conversation gracefully. An amazing side benefit is that you'll learn how
to create a welcoming community space by keeping an eye out for outliers,
considering yourself a host instead of a guest and knowing how to
compliment someone without "othering" them.

Robbie Samuels has been recognized as a networking expert by *Inc.* and
*Lifehacker*, and profiled in *Stand Out:** How to Find Your Breakthrough
Idea and Build a Following Around It* by Dorie Clark. Since 2009, his
engaging and fun presentations have helped a wide array of audiences
increase their confidence when it comes to building their professional
network and strong, welcoming communities. He passionately believes
everyone should stop wasting time networking and shares how through his
signature session, “Art of the Schmooze.”

In 2006, he founded Socializing for Justice (SoJust.org) to build a
cross-cultural, cross-issue progressive community and network in Boston
based on the philosophies of abundance and radical inclusion. In 2011, in
recognition of his social justice work, Boston City Council named his
birthday “Robbie Samuels Day." Learn more about his work and get connected

Socializing for Justice - www.sojust.org

SoJust hosts events that draw progressives of all stripes that share common
values but may work on different issues. We host monthly socials that allow
for the possibility of cross-issue connections and run a monthly ProfDev
Series, hosted by The NonProfit Center*, which provides access to
affordable professional development to increase our individual capacity for
movement building.

With over 2800 members and 9+ years of creating a diverse cross-issue
community in Boston (200+ events!), Socializing for Justice is the best
place to find the great people, organizations and community you're looking
for while putting the SOCIAL back in social justice.

YES, WE MEAN YOU. We've got members of all ages, races, genders, sexual
orientations, levels of activism and professions. We hope you see someone
like yourself and meet someone you otherwise wouldn't have.
