Networking and Events
Networking and Events are incredible, aren’t they? It’s never been easier to get in touch with someone across the globe, and the internet means that we can now achieve many of our daily tasks from the comfort of our armchairs at home or in the office.
Run different events and mix it up by doing crazy things!
That’s why networking in the new world, is going to change how we see things from 2020 and beyond. New hybrid events with online gatherings will mix face-to-face events and become one with the universe, and these events, gatherings, meetings etc will become more important than ever for your business. They bring communication back to basics: real people having real conversations.
Face-to-face events are powerful in creating strong business communities. Face-to-face events do much more than merely provide you with leads; they give you the rare opportunity to form bonds with like-minded and driven businesspeople. Face-to-face events offer companies the opportunity to share their experiences from the world of business and learn from one another. Forging relationships through coming together and supporting each other is much more sustainable than simply turning up and trying to sell to everyone in sight.
Further to this, face-to-face events allow us to better gauge the thoughts and feelings of those we are trying to work with, as well as give us a better chance to present our businesses as confidently as possible.
Attending networking events can also be powerful on a personal level, giving attendees an opportunity to continually improve their communicative skills. Having a good level of interpersonal ability is integral for progressing in any career and having the opportunity to build upon those skills is one that should never be passed up! A few of the meetings that Sonny attends personally are Network My Club, County Business Clubs and Sussex Chamber Events.
What are you waiting for, get out there and make those connections!
