Adam Khorshid, Business Development Director at Oracle

North Shore Breakfast with the Wharton Club of Chicago and the Harvard Business School Club of Chicago

Adam_Khorshid_pic.jpgPlease join us on Thursday, October 12 at 7am for a discussion with Adam Khorshid on the topic of creating new business by making new connections with new people and new companies.

There is plenty of unreliable and conflicting information out there:
•    Networking does or doesn’t work
•    Cold calling does or doesn’t work
•    It’s who you know, not what you know

This conversation is about what works and how to do it. This is the discussion you won’t find in books or on the Internet. These are proven methods used by the top revenue generators in the world. These methods work regardless of the type of product or service, and for startups and mature businesses alike.

We will cover:
•    Identifying the right people to talk to
•    The best methods to contact them
•    What to say to get their attention
•    How to construct an efficient networking process
