When it comes to networking, we all know we should do it.  The biggest challenge, however, is that we don’t know how!  Whether you’re the extrovert who’s comfortable in any situation or the wallflower who feels intimidated in large groups, you need to know how to network effectively if you want to be successful in 2017.  Relationships are the currency of the future and you’ve got to build real, genuine and influential connections if you want to have a thriving business and full life.  Learn the tips, thoughts, and ideas that have helped Steve build three successful businesses almost exclusively on networking and referrals.

Steve Heroux I Co-founder & President, Next Level Sales Coaching
As an accomplished sales professional and sales leader, Steve delivers a powerful and transformational sales message. His ability to engage salespeople with his knowledge, experience, and cutting-edge content is even more enjoyable when you hear it through his witty and spot-on delivery style. Steve adds to his speaking platform an amazing ability to coach both seasoned sales professionals as well as the newest salesperson, both on and off stage. He is the Co-founder and President of Next Level Sales Coaching.  After more than 20 years of success in sales and sales management, his achievements in the field of professional selling are rarely matched. Steve realized his ultimate calling was to share with thousands of others in the business world how they can achieve their goals and dreams by selling with honesty and integrity.


There is not a single skill that can have a larger impact on your career or success than becoming a better presenter. Whether you are a seasoned speaker or scared to death talking in front of people, this presentation is going to show you a few important steps that will put you on the road to better presentations. Our speaker has delivered over 1,000 presentations to audiences that range from 15 to 6,000 and he will be the first to tell you it wasn’t always easy.

Jabez LeBret I Chief of Schools, Sisu Academy
Jabez LeBret is Chief of Schools at Sisu Academy. He started speaking professionally right after college while he was working as a financial analyst at Nordstrom. He was booed on stage once by 450 people and has received a standing ovation from thousands…this helps him share the good tactics and the things you should avoid. As Jabez’s career moved along he learned that speaking allowed him opportunities to get in front of decision-makers and build a stronger tribe. Currently, Jabez is preparing to launch Sisu Academy, San Diego region’s first tuition-free private boarding high school.
