Reviews for Anna-Vija’s Presentations

The most valuable thing I gathered was the emphasis on seeing networking as serving, helping, and being intentional with others. I loved learning that networking doesn’t have to be pointless or scary, but rather an opportunity to build community and get to know people in a genuine way.

My favorite part was the specific guidelines on networking. Not a general “you can do it!” But direct actions you can take to improve your ROI.

Anna-Vija’s action plan that laid out step-by-step how to network is so helpful! But it was your story of the best advice she ever received that really stuck with me.

I loved the 2/20/80 concept and being in control of the coffee meeting. I don’t even like coffee, I’ll take a water!
