Dresher, PA, November 24, 2017 (Newswire.com) - Travel opportunities dot the Cobalt Executives calendar for good reason. Hannah, the firm’s President, explained, “I want our people to have broad perspectives on what they do and how much of an impact it makes. Traveling to industry events, relaxation retreats, and other gatherings helps our associates expand their horizons in so many valuable ways. This was especially true for the recent top entrepreneurial conference in Dallas, which several of our team members attended.”
Hand-selected associates attended the conference due to their commitment to achieving their goals. Hannah commented, “I decided to send Mathew, Natalie, Angie, Taylor, and Aj to Dallas. I knew they would benefit in so many ways from the opportunity, including the chance to see the big picture of what this business has to offer. They also learned how to facilitate growth within their teams.”
Networking with other like minded industry leaders was another benefit offered by the Top Entrepreneurial Conference. The President added, “Our associates got to see firsthand what it takes to succeed and be a mentor to others. I’m sure the connections they made will help Cobalt Executives and the brands we promote in a variety of ways.”

Cobalt Executives’ President Offers Tips for Networking at Conferences
The networking potential provided by an event like the Dallas conference is significant, but it can be intimidating for the uninitiated. This is why Hannah always shares a few simple tips with her team members before a big industry gathering. She explained, “When you have a plan going in, it’s easy to make at least a few valuable connections every time you venture out to a conference. So that’s my first piece of advice before every Cobalt Executives team outing – have a plan for how many contacts you want to make and do some research on who will be in attendance.”
Another simple tip Hannah offers her team members is to ask lots of open-ended questions when they meet a promising potential contact. “People enjoy talking about themselves,” the President noted. “When you pose interesting questions about their work experience and personal interests, new contacts tend to remember you in a positive light. Not only that, asking insightful questions helps you uncover common ground on which you can build a stronger connection. Following up is also much easier when you have some personal notes to call upon.”
