Professional Development Webinar:  Overcoming Objections

Event Description

Sponsored by the CFAP Women's Advisory Committee

Many people think negatively about objections, but that's missing the big picture. If a person raises an objection, that's not necessarily a bad thing. At the very least, the person is interested enough to engage in conversation with you, instead of politely smiling and saying, "No thanks."  
Actually, the fact that someone is bringing up a concern means that you have a chance to find an answer for them.

Overcoming objection is a necessary business skill that we all must possess.  Our presenter, Rebecca Okamoto, will show you how to improve your ability to professionally and tactfully overcome objections from colleagues, supervisors and prospective clients.
