Attitude meets diversity

Without doubt professional variety plays an important part of our network. Without variety there would be a particularly dull meeting, this is why we invite our guests. The same can be said for attitude … and when the positive attitude mixes with diversity the magic of word of mouth referral has the potential to bringContinue reading “Attitude meets diversity”

Why people buy people

Over the last few decades, networking has devolved into an endless series of cattle-call events full of barn-style open bars, coffee meets and the inevitable tub-thumping. Perfect strangers, after a long day at the office, agree to show up and bump into each other, randomly exchanging business pitches for business cards. Needless to say, traditional networking is not working anymore. For successful 21st century business people, large networking events and the mountains of business cards they produce have become a waste of time and valuable resources. It’s time to re-evaluate why people buy people. So let me ask you … are you Networking or Netconnecting? Networking will feed you today. And for some of us, this is why we ‘do’ networking. We know this, but connecting … really connecting and playing the longer game, understanding that properly developed relations is what makes for some amazing and sustainable opportunities that stretch far deeper than simply the one-off business opportunity. So let me ask you … are you Networking for today or Netconnecting?

All The Right Messages

Expectations are high each and every time we attend our networking Forum – at least they should be, after all it is all about the business … BUT … are we good for our business? The key elements to your success are very simple: Your presence Your engagement And the message you give out We all know that we need to take our ‘shop window’ to the prospect if the prospect is not visiting our business. Your presence at Weeklybiz Forum offers just that, a regular connection with potential customers who have regular connections of your own. We also understand that that it is not enough to simply ‘turn up’ at your network forum – we need to participate, tell others about us and what we offer … so others can in turn, tell others about us. This is where the message you give out is important.   Are you enthusiastic about your business – think about your Attitude, is it positive (or negative) contagious?? Do you know exactly what is right for your business?  Because, if YOU don’t know this, don’t expect your colleagues and next best customer to help you find it.
