Absolutely. Networking is actually a very unnatural thing for us to do because it exposes us to rejection and nobody wants to be rejected.
In this speech or workshop I share practical skills on how to read a room, break the ice, have a quality conversation, (if relevant) probe for opportunity, be confident and so much more that you'll be looking for opportunities to network as soon as you leave the room!
A leader's networks allow them to be able to effect change up close and at a distance. It increases their ability to be able to influence and make an impact at many different levels within their organisation or industry.
It gives them access to information denied to others and builds a professional brand that is respected. valued and noticed when the time comes for promotion.
Networking is a fundamental competency of sales.
Business development is about finding people who have challenges and problems that our service or product can solve and then we monetise the exchange.
