The Art of Networking

Posted on Updated on

Networking is an art, as with a painting it takes time even weeks or months to get right. Networking is a commitment of time, your time. If others are prepared to give you their time then shouldn’t you?

I love networking and meeting new people and finding out, what they provide, do, and most important building that relationship. In my case this has resulted in business over the years. One thing to remember is you not just taking to one person you are talking to everyone that person knows, their Network.

The Do not’s of networking  Do not except to get business from the first meeting, people deal with people, but to do business they have to trust you first. Build that relationship and the business will flow.  I say to people who want to attend the www.friday-networking-lunch.com   you never know who you are going to meet? but for this to happen you have to turn up.
