The New Art of Conference Networking Course
After the Conference has Concluded,
it’s the Connections That Continue
There was a time when I thought, “He or she with the most business cards at the end of the day wins.” Boy was I wrong.
Hi, I’m Mike Ambassador Bruny. With over a decade of corporate and entrepreneurial experience, I’ve attended my share of conferences and networking events as a participant, coordinator and exhibitor.
I remember being told that networking is important and it’s something I have to do, but I don’t remember being taught how to do it or, more importantly, being taught the mindset of good networking.
Much of what I learned in the early days was through trial and error (felt like there was more error than trial). That has evolved to experimentation and study. I remember starting out as a “card bomber” – that person who doesn’t even take the time to say, “Hello,” before shoving their business card in your face.
I’ve evolved over the years to the person who clearly understands that building relationships takes time, it takes a plan and it takes a mindset of reciprocity.
I love conferences because they provide a perfect opportunity to connect with a large group of like-minded people at the same time. But remember, just because you have like minds under one roof, does not mean they will automatically connect. That’s why I’m not a big fan of agendas that just say, “Networking hour,” without any kind of facilitation. All kinds of things get in the way and could leave you with the conference networking blues: lack of confidence, feeling overwhelmed, not knowing what to say, not feeling like you have anything to offer, etc.
“The New Art of Conference Networking” course is my answer to the conference networking blues. The course helps you get clear on your goals, what you have to offer, ways to gain confidence and how to have flawless follow-up. Our secret sauce? Showing you how to use online tools to make connections BEFORE your conference. The results? Anticipation – you have people who can’t wait to meet you in person after connecting online. (I call this #Hashtags to Handshakes). Having someone who can’t wait to meet you at the conference beats not knowing anyone and feeling totally overwhelmed. Are you ready to have a different experience?
A few things you’ll learn from my years of experimentation, research, succeeding and failing:
What makes a conference such an ideal place to connect with people–better than a local event
3 things you need to remember that will allow you to relax and draw people to you instead of always chasing others
How to make staying in touch more fun and less time consuming

What Will You Learn In The Course?
Each module will cover 1 of the 4 pillars to mastering conference networking:
Module 1 – Focus: set up your mental and physical plan before the conference to ensure that you align your networking goals with your business goals, and minimize your chances of overwhelm.
Module 2 – Engage: learn how to connect with the folks you want to connect with…before the event. This is the difference between a hug and a blank stare when you meet in person.
Module 3 – Attend: focus on being human; understand why knowing exactly where the bathroom is, where the locals hang out and the best place to put your name badge can make you the god or goddess of the conference.
Module 4 – Follow-up: get over the “It’s too late to follow-up” syndrome and get the exact scripts you need to turn what was once nerve-racking and anxiety-inducing into something easy and automatic.
Every Module: You’ll receive vetted technology tools that save you time and help you organize your networking journey. One of the tools will help you answer the age old question, “What do I do with all these business cards now that I have them?”

Still Want More (Add Coaching for $99)
Sometimes you really need to get down to the specifics of your situation. For those of you who still want or need more support, I’m here for you. You can add 1hr of coaching for $99 (usually $199) when you purchase the online course. You can use the 1hr however you would like, but I suggest setting up 30 minutes before your conference and 30 minutes after your conference. Space is limited.
Here is how you can get a coaching spot with me:
1. Purchase the online course above.
2. Send me an email with a copy of your receipt (AmbassadorBruny@Gmail.com)
3. I will respond with an invoice for the $99 coaching and a scheduling link so we can schedule your coaching time.
Being an introvert, I feared I would be overwhelmed by the massive crowd, and would end up just attending the sessions but not really meet people, and miss a big part of what the event had to offer. In other words, I didn’t really know what to expect from a networking perspective.
That’s when Mike’s genuine interest for net-working (ask him about it) came into play, at the perfect time.
A few weeks before the conference, he launched his course to help other future attendees prepare.
Thanks to his sessions I had a clearer view of what I could expect, set goals for myself, and learned various tips and tricks that helped me achieve these goals.
Knowing I was correctly prepared for the event was greatly comforting and allowed me to show up there with more confidence.
My initial goal of meeting at least five people and stay in contact with them now seems amusingly small.
The results exceeded the objective by far: I met dozens of people and created meaningful connections with more of them than I imagined possible.
Those people are now part of my daily online life and we exchange ideas and support each others on various personal or business-related projects regularly.
Mike is really passionate about helping people and I already recommended him to friends whom I think would benefit from having him on their side. -Patrice Bellan, Consultant
