Doug Sandler's Nice Guys (and Girls) Finish First program will put you on a fast track to building better relationships. In today's digital age, where it is easier to zip out a text message, fire off an email or post a message to someone's wall, Doug's program helps put perspective on the importance of building relationships human to human. Technology is an amazing tool, unfortunately too many people hide behind it instead of using it to enhance connections. In quick order Doug will walk you through many of the lessons he has learned along the way. As a part of his program he will dive deep into effective ways to build lasting relationships, teach audience participants about the 5 biggest mistakes of relationship building, and use real world examples that will make participants say, "Why didn't I think of that?" Amazon Best Selling author of Nice Guys Finish First and long-time NACE member, Doug Sandler will show you how to strengthen connections into lifelong relationships.
Signed "Nice Guys Finish First" books will be available for sale at the event.
