Event Number 3

20 AUGUST – Networking Skills, Online and in Person.

Networking has always been popular. There are business networks opening every day, online, in person (when we return to normal) and blended across the two. But…..

• Which networks might be right for you?

• How can I assess them and make the right choices?

• Why are some networks more successful than others, or is it just bluff and bravado?

• What are the “tricks” to make me more comfortable and effective when networking?

• How can I make an impact in a room full of “strangers”

• How can I create an effective networking strategy for myself and my business?

So many people try networking once or twice and never return and just as many seem to join everything. Where is the middle ground and is this right for me?

This highly practical webinar is hosted by Nick Bramley, a former Business Network Owner and Chair of the IoD in North Yorkshire. Nick is also a highly effective, yet selective networker too. See both sides and if networking is for you, at learn how to make it work for you too – online, on Zoom or in person.

One not be missed….
