Effective Business Networking


There are many benefits to networking such as improving skills and building a fruitful network to help you grow your business. If you want networking to achieve what you want then it’s essential to put some thought into your networking strategy and approach.

On this masterclass you will learn how to network effectively.

More specifically you will discover:

  • How networking can help you achieve your business plan
  • How to select the right networking for you
  • How to network with confidence
  • How to build rapport and instigate effective conversations
  • How to present your business with impact
  • How to follow up effectively
  • How to make your networking a part of a successful sales process

 

Note to businesses – if networking is a part of your marketing and sales strategy, and you think you could be more effective in how you do it, then come along to sharpen those skills, and share your experience of networking with the Young Chamber

BUSINESS NETWORKING

There will be plenty of time for business networking

Wandsworth Chamber of Commerce and Wandsworth Council invite you to attend an ‘Apprenticeships’ breakfast event on Wednesday 7th March 2018 at the Banham Academy.

The event will focus on the value of apprenticeships and how investing in apprentices can boost your business. Taking place during National Apprenticeship Week and Wandsworth’s Enterprise Week, apprenticeships will be the focus for all businesses across all sectors.

Guests will hear from relevant heads of training providers on how apprenticeships are structured, as well as the current funding available for businesses. This event will be particularly helpful to employers who are looking for guidance and support. There will also be an opportunity for questions through a Q&A session.

To further enhance your understanding of apprenticeships and how they can benefit your business:

  • Hear from local employers already involved in apprenticeships
  • Speak to experts who will be able to provide customised advice for your business
  • Hear from the apprentices themselves
  • Network with other employers to develop your apprenticeship strategy
  • The money – how to make the most of your Apprenticeship Levy if you are a levy payer or maximising government incentives for Apprenticeships for non- levy payers.

THE MASTERCLASS... How to DRIVE your business to the next level! If

and what your strategy is going to be to make the necessary changes.

Is this for you?

  • Are you a Business Leader, wanting to improve, change and grow your business this year? 
  • Are you sometimes frustrated with your progress?
  • Are you overwhelmed and too busy doing stuff all the time to think about and plan how to move towards your bigger business goals?
  • Do you struggle to "see the wood for the trees" in terms of the best way forward?
  • Are you frustrated by a lack of time, focus, resources, or consistent pipeline?

 

If so you are in the right place.

 

The CHALLENGE...

If you want to improve things, and make more of a success of your business this year, then it's vital you invest TIME to think and plan your way forward.

Unfortunately, time is the one thing Business Owners tend to struggle with the most!

The irony is, once you start to put the time in to planning, then your activities become more purposeful and effective, and that in itself starts to help you create time. But it starts with the first step, you’ve got to carve out some time to get going: we like to say “you’ve got to take time to make time!”
