September saw a record high month for the number of new ‘Contact Builders’, our unique 1-1 relationship-building service. It also took the total number of clients who have used this service to over 500 – including some who’ve been with us from the very start 6 years ago!
With most things in life – sport, DIY, playing a musical instrument, art, dancing. etc – some people just seem to naturally pick things up well. We’re all good at some things, but find others a challenge. Networking is exactly the same!
Despite only being underway for a few weeks, the Ttenners are already doing what these groups do: building relationships, sharing vital market intel and insights, supporting each other and winning new business.
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?
During these unprecedented and uncertain times, should we keep networking? Yes, very, very much so! Networking events are understandably getting postponed at the moment. But the events themselves are just parts of the process – and we can still do every other part!
It’s the most important piece of paper at (and before) any event.
Everyone likes a deal. Yes, everyone, including you! And it’s pretty clear which on-going ABN deal you like the most.
Well done to all members who attended the most recent ABN Meet-Everyone M4 Networking Event, sponsored by ABN Gold Member Mindblox and hosted by Aberdeen Arts Centre.
