C House began as a brilliant idea of the enterprising Cristiano Iezzi (Milan), creativity of leading restaurant designer Andrea Langhi (Milan) and support of Torrefazione Poli, a major Italian coffee business. The concept combines the best of quality culinary, design and service experience, which has made it one of the most elegant lounges in the world. This elegance has proven to impress people regardless in every one of the 40 locations in several countries in which C House now has a location.

Yorkville’s culturally rich history, diversity, international flair and top quality reflects the C House experience and is an ideal location for the restaurant in Toronto. The Yorkville community attracts both the sophisticated international customer as well as local individuals that appreciate the atmosphere, food and service they enjoy at C House.

Be A Networking Pro and “Enlight” Experience

Thursday March 22,2012 was a great experience to speak  to the Chinese Professionals Association  in Toronto at the Jack Astor’s in Downtown Toronto.
It  was few months ago that I was at the same location attending a social media panel discussion on pros and cons of being on social media with Promod Sharma and Huge Reilly.  It was a evening with interesting discussion and thought provoking  questions on how social media is evolving in the 21st century.
Before and after the event we had opportunity to network and as I always say “be prepared for the opportunity” you never know who you are going to meet. That evening I met Peter Zhou Young Professional Division Chinese Professionals Association of Canada. Peter and I had a great conversation on the art of networking and he was very interested in my book and how to become a networking success.
A few weeks later I got an invitation to speak for Peter’s organization on how they coined “Be A Networking Pro”   –  short, sweet and to the point, I like that!   We had some telephone and email communication with the public relations department of The Chinese Professionals Association to finalize the presentation.  A request for some prizes were made.
It has been a busy week and I’m looking forward to sharing networking insights and experiences with these young professionals.
As I arrived I was greeted by Peter Zou and James Shi, the master of ceremonies for the evening.  They had a theatre style set up and I had contributed a portable screen for the presentation.
They were expecting a solid attendance for the event and they arrived with enthusiasm and excitement. Introductions were made, and I was ready to share my experiences becoming a networking success.
I shared a brief article on “Three Key Task To Success” that I had written for my Alumni Centennial  College, and the impact these strategies can make on their journey.  Then I ventured into the system of becoming a networking success and shared the P-A-R system – simple and effective strategies to follow to create an effective system of communication and getting results in networking conversations (link is below on chapter available online).
I shared insights and experiences of how to use the P-A-R system and ways to create positive engagement, the art of communication language with technology (3-T’s),  and the ability to interpret non-verbal  (handshake) and verbal communication.
Had a special guest speaker in Hyosum Kim  from the Toronto Millionaire Mind Ambassadors  talk about the book Secrets of the Millionaire Mind by T. Harv Eker and the upcoming seminar happening on May 27-29 in Toronto. (see details below)
We had great Q & A session at the event where we talked about body language, how angles are important in networking, and how to deal with different networking situations. (see video link below)
Another great experience I viewed   was a networking  game the audience participated in for 30 minutes – it  gave them the opportunity to learn, do and apply what they had learned.
There was a delicious dinner served at the end by Jack Astor’s with assorted Nacho’s and finger foods. We also had numerous participants approach me individually with comments and questions regarding networking and business, life and success.
The Chinese Professionals Association of Canada has numerous events and initiatives that are promoted and their website is  www.chineseprofessionals.ca  for more information.

The networking gap, who is the better @ networking Men or women?

Insights from two networking Gurus Jim Pagiamtzis and Janette Burke

A man walks into a social function. During the minute it takes him to reach the table, he has already connected with 10 people. A woman walks into a restaurant. In the same minute, she stops to talk to only two people.

Who is better at networking – men or women? To answer this question and dispel the myth, I asked Janette Burke, ‘Your Marketing Magnet’ to weigh-in.

Janette’s answer: The woman of course!
Jim’s answer: The Man

Jim Pagiamtzis response

Men are the hunters. We go out, network, talk and collect cards and promote ourselves. It’s the natural way they do business. Adding online connections from LinkedIn to increase our resources and find the right people for the right deal.
Our status is important in the way we communicate and its done through confidence. We walk in a room scan it quickly and enter the foray of conversation – collecting and handing out cards with essence of getting quantity and not being concerned about quality. Through this process we can narrow down our focus and talk to the most influential people in the room.

Being part of the social fabric is where we do our business. Our professional experience is shared and we know that will lead to a result, although we are well aware this does take time and energy to complete.
Getting connected and making wealth happen is the laser focus that we have entering an environment where we want to succeed and get results.

Janette Burke response:

Men by nature may be the hunters and gathers, but if they really want to “go out, network, talk, collect cards and promote their businesses, make connections and wealth happen” (as you put it), they should explore the Women’s method for achieving long-term “business success.”
You see when it comes to networking and GROWING our businesses, us gals believe in QUALITY over QUANTITY. We prefer to take our time getting to know and LISTENING to our prospects. And tend to bestow all our attention and focus on THEM – asking key questions, exploring their particular needs and determining how we (or someone we know) can easily solve them.
We also concentrate on building and nurturing the relationship first, knowing that sales and profits are sure to result.
We QUALIFY our prospects up-front. In the course of doing so, don’t waste precious time and resources going backwards to figure-out this “process” later. We refer to this as WORKING SMARTER not HARDER!
With more and more of us now at the helm of our own companies and earning over 25% of what our boyfriends and spouses make, it appears we’re leading and succeeding in our marketplace and paving the way! So we must be doing something right!!
