Description

Do you try to meet the right people at the right networking events but are really frustrated as there are always lots of sellers and no buyers? Are you paying hundreds of pounds for memberships and attending events but the people you want to meet don't seem to attend?

If either of these sound familiar you need to find out where you can meet those elusive buyers.

This course is going to show you exactly how to find any network in the UK so you can meet (nearly) anyone and for any reason. I will also discuss how to behave at these network events by sharing 3 things you must never do (seriously, they are the kiss of death!) and 3 things you must always do (which will open up doors).

Who is the target audience?
  • Business owners seeking to meet their buyers at networking events
  • Businesses and sales people new to the UK looking to break into new markets
  • Start-up businesses seeking to get quicker results and not waste money attending the ‘wrong’ networks
  • In-house marketeers helping staff to network more effectively by attending the right events for meeting their clients

Networking & Personal Brand Expert

I'm know as a Networking & Personal Brand Expert and I speak, train and coach on this subject. My passion (and what I'm known for) is demystifying the art of networking. I show people how to develop practical and effective networking strategies which they can implement immediately to get real results. These results could be new business, career development and / or an increased personal profile.

Having worked with the FTSE 500 and small to medium size enterprises for 14 years I want to share my observations, insights and the successes of others with you. I will help you to build authentic brands, to develop long-term business relationships and to become far more confident.

If you are self-employed or in sales I can help you:

  • * Break into new markets
  • * Build up an army of people who will make introductions / connections
  • * Increase your profile within your markets
  • * Increase sales
  • * Find any business network in the UK
  • * Work the room professionally & effectively

For those in employment I specialise in internal networking to help:

  • * Women's corporate networks
  • * Graduates schemes
  • * Transitioning from technical to more consultative roles
  • * Succession development
  • * Career development

My approach is very practical, interactive and based on your situation and the outcomes you want. I've developed a number of step by step processes which get to the hub of what works including a 6 step formula which covers the ONLY things you need to do to fit networking into a busy schedule and still get positive outcomes. I have also created the first online tool which helps people understand their preferred networking style.

One of my proudest moments was being invited to speak at a TEDx event recently.

My clients include Accenture, Cambridge University, KPMG, EY, London Business School, Rolls Royce and many other high calibre organisations.

Simply putting out your hand to say hello is how you start to change your world!" Heather White, Founder of Smarter Networking
