 All Star Networking Boot Camp &
Small Business Resource Expo 

Registering for the Boot Camp will also register you to attend the Expo, which begins in the adjacent exhibit hall immediately afterwards. A great pairing. And both are Free.

In this interactive All Star Networking Boot Camp, you will gain clarity and memorable, useful tips to help you make the most of your networking opportunities, including the Small Business Resource Expo, which begins next door just as the Camp concludes.

We'll walk you through each key step including having a networking plan, identifying how you'll introduce yourself and how you will follow up. You'll gain tips to make each step easier and more effective and you'll also have a chance to practice with new connections before you enter the Expo. 

By attending this special pre-Expo presentation, you will leave the Expo with far more value than any expo you've attended before. This 2-hour session is valued at more than $59, but is FREE to you as an attendee of the New Business Minnesota Small Business Resource Expo.

The Small Business Resource Expo
starts right afterwards from 1:30 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Come for 10 minutes, or stay for the afternoon. 

The all-star presenters will cover:

  • How to select networking opportunities that are the best fit for your goals.
  • Making a positive and memorable first impression.
  • Entering/exiting conversations.
  • How to be a great resource and not just "WIIFM."
  • How to network at a business expo.  
  • Post event follow up.

Attending a business expo is not only a great way to gain resources to grow your business, it also draws a wealth of valuable connections with fellow attendees and exhibitors. Most people attend an expo, visit some tables and pick up materials only to leave having missed out on the most important part -- the connections.
