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).

These results could be new business, career development and / or an increased personal profile.

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.
