LMA-MN May 2013 Program The Legal Mocktail

You are invited to participate in The Legal Mocktail, a unique event designed to help you develop and enhance your networking skills. This experiential networking training program joins together legal and accounting marketing professionals at an experiential training program in a reception setting. Like the real thing, members of the Legal Marketing Association and the Association for Accounting Marketing (AAM) will network over complimentary hors d’oeuvres and drinks. Members and guests are strongly encouraged to invite attorneys and accountants to this event.

At the event, you will be given a profile that includes basic information about a role that you will use during the cocktail hour. Each profile is strategically designed – there are a number of others in the room with whom you have something in common and/or can address a need. Your goal is to use your profile information for finding those people by effectively networking.

The cocktail hour exercise is followed by an entertaining and informative debrief session with Roberta Montafia and Catherine Alman MacDonagh, who are lawyers and executive officers at Legal Mocktail. You will get real-time feedback and tips that are sure to improve your ability to effectively forge and further relationships.

This event provides opportunities to practice a variety of skills for successful networking. The focus of the Legal Mocktail is on preparing for events and developing relationships rather than “selling” or “pitching.”

At the conclusion of the Legal Mocktail, participants will have experienced how to approach any “meet and greet” as an opportunity to forge and further relationships through networking before, during and after the event. Through the training program and facilitated “debrief” session, participants learn to invest in preparation, set reasonable goals, listen, ask questions (and then listen some more), and follow up.
