As a high-performing professional, there inevitably comes a time when you will shift from just doing the technical work to selling the work and your ideas. You may not have intended to be in sales, but to progress further in your career, you’ll want to embrace the ability to get others to buy into you and your recommendations.

During this fireside chat, Andrew Stern, Talent and Development Leader at Squarespace, will host a discussion with Wharton alum and lecturer, Robert Chen, on the core ideas from his upcoming book, Selling Your Expertise. During this session, Robert will dive into the common obstacles to success in business development along with practical strategies to help you better showcase the value you can add to others. You’ll also have an opportunity to ask your questions throughout the session.

Since Robert is on the executive committee for the Wharton Club of NY, he’s offering this session at no charge for supporting members. His book, Selling Your Expertise: The Mindset, Strategies, and Tactics of Successful Rainmakers, launches on April 12th. Pre-order a copy today in time for the live session.
