Welcoming Our New ‘ABN Ten’ Group Managers: Siobhan, Graeme, Craig & Leigh!

Following the very successful takeover of ABN Ten Groups by James Allan of Flux for A10 and Steven Smith of Appsure for Q10, we’re delighted to announce that Aberdeen Business Network have recently appointed four more Ten Group managers. They join longstanding managers John Willis of 2 Circles Communications for L10, Jason Moir of XIC for X10 and Andrew Smith of ABN who remains manager to the remaining 2 groups.

All networking formats work…

Any networking organisation/format that’s been running for years will be effective for most of its attendees, otherwise why would they attend?? And networking events give us the chance to develop relationships, so it’s wrong to say that an event/format doesn’t work. However, it may not work best for you compared to other options

Should we spend networking time with people we already know?

Whenever we network we’re trying to do one thing only – develop relationships. And this doesn’t mean only starting new relationships, it also means developing existing relationships. In other words, increasing both the quantity and the quality of our relationships. After all, how can relationships develop if we have one conversation with someone but never a second conversation?
