New Events Coming in December!


Infinite Business Connections is excited to announce a new format that we will be implementing in our business and networking events beginning in December!

Each of these events will incorporate an educational approach in business as well as time to network with other attendees and create new business relationships. We will also feature a special guest presenter each evening to discuss topics that can help each of us in business as well as life in general.

These events will be held on Monday evenings at the restaurant Bertucci’s located in Melville, NY.

If you are interested in becoming one of our special guest presenters in the future, please contact us at Infinite Business Connections to discuss!


Long Island Health Expo

This is not your usual health fair; this is a lively interactive event. Our goal is to help you, the vendor, get the most bang for your buck by guiding and supporting you every step of the way. As a bonus we provide a networking class for vendors one week after the event to show you how to make the most out of the leads you’ve received.*

We provide high profile speakers and extensive advertising through radio, newspapers and social media.

As an exhibitor, you will have access to men, women and children of all ages looking for ways to improve their physical, financial and emotional health. For more information, the event details are provided on our website

This is a highly organized event and we would love to have you there. If you would like to participate, please complete the registration form on our website ASAP! Registration is limited and the deadline is approaching. To be fair only two vendors from the same industry will be accepted. If you have any questions or concerns please contact us.

Yours in Good Health,

The 14 Most Important Presentation Tips

Thank to Brian Cohen, our featured speaker on January 27th. Brian talked about how to further ‘develop and deliver your memorable elevator pitch’. And he sent us these tips. Consider joining him at Toastmasters to laugh and learn even more –

1)    Move your head

2)    Move your hands

3)    Move your body

4)    Eye Contact – Look into the eyes of your audience and alternate after a few beats or what feels right.  People will appreciate it.

5)    Open with fire. Start with something great. Not who you are and everything on your resume.  You can add some of those details second.

6)    POV – Point of View – Where is the other person (or your audience) coming from.  Put yourself in their shoes.  Always be “recipient focused.”

7)    Benefits – Are you just talking about the features of who you are or what your product/topic is?  People connect on the benefits.

8)    Use the MAGIC PHRASE – “For Example” This will cause you to use stories, case studies, analogies, etc.  This were people make full connection with your ideas.  Make sure each “for example” has a POINT or MESSAGE.

9)    Deliver Real Value.  People will remember you for that.

10)    Never READ to people.  This includes reading a script or reading off a PowerPoint.  Use bullet pointed notes and PRACTICE before hand.

11)    You are the star, not your PowerPoint or handouts, etc.

12)    Use Images to drive points home.  People remember images. This will help them remember your messages attached, and remember YOU!

13)    Emotion – Is there feeling in what you’re saying?  Are you speaking with energy?  People make a real connection with you when emotion is part of the mix.

14)    REHEARSE! – Practicing with a video camera will help you look great in half the time with twice the results.  In one take, you will see yourself the way your audience sees you and will be able to make quick changes.
