As the COVID-19 global health crisis brings uncertainty and elevated levels of stress and anxiety for small business owners, now, more than ever, is the time to come together and support each other.
Networking events are a great way to raise awareness of your business, gain advice, and make valuable connections to help you grow your network.
It’s back and bigger!
As we hurtle towards a relatively quiet season and well-deserved summer break – have you thought about ramping up your networking activity to provide the growth and momentum you need to start Q3 and Q4 strong?
Building your B2B network takes commitment and persistence, but success comes from the quality of your network over the quantity of contacts.
Seldom will you find an experienced networker who hasn’t once experienced the discomfort, fear and uncertainty you’re likely feeling (why else did you click on this post?) right now.
With the premier of our monthly networking event, Haiders Hub, we thought we’d share some of our tips for making the most out of your networking events.
• How confident are you in your business networking and your strategy?
• Are you unsure if your monthly minute is having the right impact?
• Are you getting the right contacts through your networking efforts?
• In fact, are you getting ANY contacts?
Despite the digitally dominated era we find ourselves in, networking opportunities are available in abundance.
It seems there is something to suit every personality type: informal coffee mornings, black tie evenings, seminars and workshops, formal business lunches, presentation and awards evenings, and even speed-networking.
