Business Link Host Networking Workshops in West Midlands
Business Link host networking workshops for West Midlands businesses
Following on from a recent series of workshops focusing on managing cash flow and new sources of finance, Business Link West Midlands are now hosting a series of networking seminars throughout September, aimed at helping businesses to develop relationships, and increase sales.
The sessions will take place at Shropshire Chamber of Commerce in Telford (9th Sep), St Johns Hotel in Solihull (14th September), and Longbridge Technology Park in Birmingham (22nd Sep).
Led by ‘Midlands Networker of the Year’ Helen Dowling, the free sessions will focus on useful tips surrounding networking, including advice on how to prepare for events and how best to seel your business when you get there.
Some people can find networking awkward and unnatural – the sessions will aim to scrutinise this and find out how to get the most out of the sessions.
Helen Goring, head of marketing and events at Business Link West Midlands, commented:
“The last ‘Networking Made Easy’ workshops were a huge success, with more than 300 different companies attending and using what they learned to win new business.
“From the feedback we received, it was clear that these were very useful events and that individuals wanted further sessions to learn more ‘tricks of the trade’ – and that is exactly what we are giving the West Midlands’ business community with these workshops.”
Among the topics, delegates will find out how to avoid the potential faux pas scenario such as removing themselves politely from a conversation, how to describe their business in 30 seconds, and what to do with business cards after the event.
