There is an old adage in the business world that your network is your net worth. Many small and medium sized business owners join the London Chamber of Commerce specifically to network with other business owners.
But how do you optimize your networking? How do you go from playing the networking game to actually building meaningful and lasting relationships? How do you make networking actually work for your business?
In this fun and interactive workshop, you will learn:
1. Networking basics - making a great first impression, your handshake, your elevator pitch, do’s and don’ts of that first all-important contact.
2. Making Meaningful Connections - It’s not all about how many business cards you can collect!
3. Making Lasting Connections - Now that the introductions are over, how do you stay engaged with your new contacts? (Without being creepy!)
4. Paying it Forward. Now that you’re an awesome networker, you’ll be in a better position to help your fellow Chamber members by making introductions and referrals. We’re all in this together!
