Event description

Description


A basic tenet of the psychology of relationships is called the Principle of Reciprocity. This principle defines the human need and tendency to want to give something back when something is received. This need is strongest when the gift is given without expectation of return. Could this be a key to success in life and business?

  • How to be a great giver?
  • Can you give too much?
  • How can you measure the results of a reciprocation strategy?

Our expert panel of business people will discuss these questions and share strategies for reciprocation that have worked for them.

Event Schedule:
6.00pm - 6.30pm Networking
6.30pm - Panel Discussion
7.45pm - 8.30pm Networking

Light refreshments of prosecco and pizza will be served
