People do business with people they know, like and trust.

For example, on average, engineering and land surveying firms enjoy over 85% repeat business. So, we can see the importance of good relationships.  Learning to build your own relationships not only makes you a credible professional, it can also be a confidence builder. Many of us just don’t know how to start without feeling at-risk and uncomfortable. 


Learning Objectives:


1.     How to ease yourself into networking

2.     How to use the other person to choose conversation starting subjects

3.     What not to do when forming a new relationship

4.     How to end a conversation and move on while leaving a good impression


Program Duration:  1.5 hours


   Doug Reed, PE, as an engineering executive, watched too many firms fail to reach their financial goals, enter new markets only to see their plans backfire, bring in “rainmakers” and never get a trickle, and start important initiatives that don’t gain traction.

Then he discovered how to apply best practices to the processes, culture, and systems. Using this insight, he doubled and tripled the revenue and profitability of his firms and secured their future. 
Today as FosterGrowth, Doug's passion is showing executives at engineering and environmental companies how safe growth and a comfortable financial position can be achieved without compromising vision or integrity.
Doug has his BS and MS in Civil Engineering.  He spent over 25 years with AE firms, twice elected shareholder, and served on one firm’s Board of Directors.
