    what would you do to show/tell about your business? I have a presentation tomorrow and I get 10 minutes to talk about my business to the group. The purpose of the presentation is to give them information about what I do so they can tell others and refer me to people they know.

    What do you think?

    This is a business networking group, right? Members of these groups want to know how referring people to you can help them. Maybe include somewhere in your speech that whenever a show is held by someone referred by someone in the group you'll be sure to work their business name into your presentation (I met Host Ann through Dave at Shoeless Joe's Coffee. Dave makes the best Amaretto Mocha I've ever tasted! If you're in the mood to be indulgent while stuck in traffic, I highly suggest stopping at Shoeless Joe's before getting on the freeway).

    Next, explain how hosting a Pampered Chef show will benefit their friends/relatives/customers/vendors:

    *Save money by eating at home more often, which also allows for more family time
    *Learn to make quick and easy, and delicious meals, which are actually fun to prepare
    *Quality products, which can be earned free and discounted
    *Great excuse to invite friends over for a couple of hours of fun, without having to worry about decorating, buying alcohol (unless they want to), preparing a bunch of food; all the things normally associated with a party. This saves them time and money.

    There was something else I was going to add, but now I forgot what it was. Oh well, you get the idea.

    Don't, however, focus on how the business benefits you, or that you use it to earn extra money. Again, if it's a business networking group, the speech should be about them and their contacts, not about you. Be prepared to answer the question if someone asks, but don't make it the focus of your speech.

    Thanks for your ideas, that helps. The group is a networking group, but I don't have to promote them as you mention. I find referrals for them and they find referrals for me. So I want to make sure they know what I do and what I can give when they refer someone to me.

    Last time I did this, I showed the DCB and how great it is and what it can do. I was thinking about bringing a potato and showing off some of our tools this time. I like the suggestions you made about the business, I'll add that to the presentation too.

    What tools would you show off with the potato?

    A big wow moment at one of my biz group presentations is to not only tell the benefits but bring a sample of products a recent host has gotten Free.

    Think about your group and who you want to attract. Make it about who they know, come up with some examples and be specific... Know anyone who does a regular game night? If so this is what I could do for them... If there is a landscaper in the group ask him to give his customers onfo about patio or grill shows. I have been getting alot of referrals lately for Relay For life teams.

    You will do great!
