Try to look at it from the point of view of your fellow networker. You are one of many people they’ll be chatting with. If you were them, would you want to hear long-winded answers to ‘What do you do?’ and other questions? Or succinct and interesting answers that are easy to understand, remember and pass on to others?
Unsure which one of our fantastic services would suit you best? Don’t sweat!
Take our personal networking assessment and let us help you make the right decision. We’ll then be in touch with you with our recommendation.
“ABN has been central to the expansion of my business in Aberdeen – enabling me to build relationships with other business owners that has resulted in both new business and a great support network”
“ABN has been central to the survival of Moment throughout the current crisis. The power of our network, the connections and referrals it has yielded, combined with the advice and support of Andrew and his team, has meant that we have been able to continue trading, with our full team employed. Several new contracts won directly as a result of ABN connections have set us on a course for continued, sustainable growth in line with our team ambitions”
“I’ve been a member of ABN for around 3 months. As a direct result of being part of the ABN community, I have taken on two new clients and have more in the process of becoming clients. On top of the direct commercial benefits, it also great to be surrounded by enthusiastic, driven individuals. All in all I’m delighted to be part of ABN”
“The value of ABN, from increasing brand awareness to having a series of advocates endorsing your business, has once again paid dividends. Recommendations from fellow ABN Community members led to a substantial PR contract agreement“
“Since starting my business last year, ABN has been instrumental in my success with around £9k of business won this year alone. Most of my clients are on monthly contracts so it is ongoing income. There are also a few enquiries out there and a few referrals from ABN members so it is growing all the time”
“ABN has genuinely had an impact on our sales with regards new clients, repeat business, as well as lasting relationships which we value“
