Networking 101 – How to Network
Ever been stuck talking with someone that you don’t have a connection with? Or hung back on introducing yourself to strangers only to find you have an awkward silence shortly after meeting someone.
Face-to-face networking is crucial to the ongoing success of YOUR business and we MUST build and develop relationships to have sustainable and profitable businesses. 85% of ALL business comes from referrals and most of these from our business network, particularly in the first few years of business.
If you want to move from networking to CONNECTING, then this is the workshop to attend. Professional relationships aren’t that different from personal ones. We all look for TRUST, comfort, safety and mutual liking to build relationships. So, let’s find practical ways to build our professional network based on basics of great, positive relationships.
