We want everyone to accept that life is not fair nor easy. Being uncomfortable is the norm, and you can either be uncomfortable on your own terms or let life put you in uncomfortable situations. Here are a few places we've left our mark.
We have been invited to speak at:
- The Stimulating Urban Renewal Through Entrepreneurship (SURE) Incubator,
- The Bauer College of Business MBA Orientation,
- The National Association of Women MBAs (NAWMBA) multiple times on topics ranging from digital marketing to proper networking
- The HCC Entrepreneur's Club
- The UH International Students Organization
- The PAC Leadership Series event
The Topics of our talks are:
Networking Boot Camp (90-minute workshop)
Part A - The Networking Gym (45 min)
At the BizLatte Networking Boot Camp (BNBC), we work with professionals and entrepreneurs to help them develop
the necessary skills to build a network of purposeful and like-minded individuals that will allow them to
advance their careers and grow their business.
We go through the basics of opening, maintaining, and closing conversations
at networking events. The tools and practical exercises that we share will allow the participants to
build meaningful relationships with anyone they meet. These relationships could mean future colleagues, clients, or business partners.
Part B - Mastering the Informational Interview (45 min)
The goal of the BizLatte Informational Interview presentation is to provide actionable steps for business owners and others to effectively network with people inside and outside their industry. Many people do not know the proper way to set up an informational interview or what do when one is scheduled. During the presentation we go through the process of how to properly conduct an informational interview by breaking up the steps into easy to follow actions.
Some of the results of the BNBC methodology:
- Growing a LinkedIn network from 200 to 1500+ in less than 2 years
- Participating MBA students increased their network by at least 50% in a semester
What others are saying about BizLatte's Networking Boot Camp:
“During my first semester at Bauer MBA, I was fortunate enough to get an opportunity to be part of
the Networking Boot Camp which was brilliantly conducted by Alejandro Sanoja. The Boot Camp
provided practical ways of improving my networking skills and helped me better utilize any
networking opportunities that came my way. The Boot Camp also offered MBA students like myself,
a chance to be engaged with a student body at Bauer. I am grateful that Alejandro put in the time
and effort to execute the Boot Camps for us and I look forward to working with Alejandro in the
future.” ~ Nusabbeh Waqar, MBA Candidate at the C. T. Bauer College of Business in Houston
“We have not met but I wanted to et you know that I really enjoyed your informational
interview article, among others. I knew what informational interviews were, but had not
had the inspiration to set one up. After reading your article recently, I reached out to a
consulting firm about a phone interview and . . . We have a meeting set in a few weeks!
Thanks for bring on the inspiration.” ~ Michelle, Director of Development at Nature Discovery Green
