Share Post

Hello friends,

I think it’s fair to say that by now we all know the value of forming deep, impactful connections with others. I would like to think there’s a lovely bonded connection between myself and those of you tuning in here to Talk With Renee Dalo every week! Thanks again for being here.

But whether it’s forming a friendship connection, romantic connection (we are in the wedding industry after all), or even networking as a professional for your career and business, putting yourself out there can be a scary thing and rarely feels like a cakewalk. Not knowing what to say, who to talk to or where to network is a daunting thing for many of us to face, and today’s episode is all about just that. 

This week on Episode 178 of Talk with Rene Dalo “Talk About Genuine Connections”, we have Becca Poutney, the UK’s leading wedding industry marketing expert with an award winning wedding blog and consultancy business that she built from the ground up in 2016. 

Making genuine connections, teaching yourself how to be more confident, and engaging authentically with the people you meet is what Becca is all about. So if you are looking for a go-to guide on how to break the ice with venues, photographers, and other wedding industry experts, this is definitely a conversation you need to stick around for, because Becca is about to dive us into a mini-masterclass on the benefits and how-to’s of forming genuine connections.

So grab your tea or your coffee, get comfortable, and let’s talk about it.
