The Power of Authentic Networking: How to Build Relationships that Build Your Business
Donnie Boivin, CEO Success Champion Networking
Discover how you can harness the power of authentic networking to build relationships that truly benefit your business.

Donnie shares his transformative journey into networking, which began at a critical point in his career when he was 23 and facing potential job loss. He reveals how networking, a strategy born from desperation, evolved into a powerful tool leading to millions in sales. He’ll discuss the early challenges, including his initial reliance on networking as a primary sales strategy, and how this approach often resulted in transactional, unproductive encounters.

You'll learn the key lessons that shifted his perspective: the importance of building a personal brand based on trust and genuine connections, the necessity of seeking introductions and referrals, and the value of reciprocal relationships.

You’ll understand how networking is not just a sales tactic but an integral part of a successful business development plan and how networking, when done authentically, can lead to significant sales and long-term business growth.

Don't take our word for it, previous Summit attendees are still raving about their experiences at past summits!

  • One of my biggest takeaways from this mini summit was that doing something and succeeding is amazing, doing something and failing is great too, doing nothing at all is the worst thing I can do. Work towards my goals, be disciplined and never give up, keep moving. For each door closed, there is a window for opportunity to go through. ~ Julie Silva

  • The Champion Summit was such an amazing experience. It allowed us to open the SCN experience up to our community and it was received with open arms! Can't wait to do it again! ~ Jen Potter
