    Winning through Building Relationships       

    Relationships are key to doing business.  People like to do business with people they know, trust and feel comfortable.  Mastering the art of building relationships can be the lifeline of your business.  Customers and clients are everywhere.  You never know who can help you or how someone can help you unless you learn what they do. 
     
    Attendees will learn:
     
    • Turning a casual conversation into a great business opportunity 
    • Turning small talk into big business
    • Networking with a purpose

                       Christian Reed-Ogba

    Co-Founder & COO BethanyEast PR       

     Creating my own degree program at the University of Michigan allowed me to spotlight my skills and increase my understanding of marketing, public relations and proecess management.  As a freelance publicist I have been apart of some amazing projects -- and some pretty horrible ones, i.e., canvassing for a new store opening during a month of 100+ degree heat.  But I'm also a very hard worker, which helps.
     
    After relocating to San Antonio from Detroit in 2011, I met and married my business partner, Uche, in early 2012.  Since then we've worked for local and national campaigns, doing everything from brand  ambassador jobs to event publicists.  Some of my most recent accomplishments include becoming a thrice published journalists, embarking on sponsor ship marketing and jumping into non-profit public relations.
