*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*. 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.

based on the philosophies of abundance and radical inclusion.
