When it comes to networking, there’s an unwritten code about what not to do. The next time you’re at a networking event – whatever you do – make sure you don’t get caught doing these 3 things.
Join us Tuesday August 27th to learn more with Alexanne Stone at our Carson City Luncheon!
Drawing on 30+ years in sales and 27+ years as an NLP trainer to help you maximize your full potential. Helping people experience their very best in personal growth and professional development is Alexanne Stone’s greatest joy. Alexanne “cut her teeth” selling Apple computers in the early days in Silicon Valley. There was no product training, and barely anyone had heard of Apple computers. Those in the know greeted the name with a laugh and would say, “Get a real computer!” As the top Apple dealer for three years, she still runs into people who remember her as the person who sold their company an Apple.
For 20 years Alexanne climbed the corporate sales ladder—in a man’s world, by the way—all the way to vice president of international sales for a software firm in Santa Clara. On the way up, she became a certified Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP) trainer. If your eyes just glazed over, you’re not alone; most people tune out when they hear “neuro-linguistic programming”; the name makes it sound like rocket science. It’s not though. NLP is simply the study of the language of your mind and the minds of others. Learning NLP amplifies sales skills. It lets you listen in to what’s underneath what a prospect or customer says, throwing open relationship doors and exploding sales.
Alexanne served our country in the United States Air Force during the Vietnam war. She loves to say “They promised me everything, gave me a typewriter, and sent me to Guam!” There, she was decorated for her work rescuing and relocating the refugees during the fall of Saigon in 1975. In 1976, she completed her Air Force duty by painting an 11×9-foot mural honoring the first women pilots, who were then only allowed to fly cargo planes.
Alexanne lives in Reno, the Biggest Little City In The World, with her husband, Tim, and two rescued cats – Brindalina Spitoonia and Bright Eyes.
