How important is having a good network to a career? How do you use your network effectively? Are you known as someone who’s well-connected and can always be counted on to put the right people together in business?

She is also a New York Times’ best-selling contributing author, global keynote speaker, and business coach.

Dawn will teach attendees how to network strategically for the greatest career and business growth.

Gain takeaways you can put to use immediately to build a more spectacular network and fantastic life!

Included in this event are an Atelier Gourmet Box Lunch, complimentary glass of wine and Ms. Lyons’ lecture. Takeaways from the event include:

  • Develop a strategy for growing your network and building strong connections for greater success
  • Identify the best network connections to refer you
  • Find the missing links in your network to catapult your career to accelerated growth


  • The best way to ensure referral success is to follow the Golden Rule: treat your referral source the way you want to be treated.
  • It’s not what you know, but who you know.
  • If you provide good customer service, people will refer business to you.
  • Practice makes perfect! Practicing networking skills will make you a better networker.
