Details for the event

Wednesday 15th May 2013

Venue – Redwood Hotel & Country Club

Seminar before lunch hosted by Sean Humby – Business Network SW

“A – Z of networking – your route map to successful networking” 

Networking is definitely a buzz word today.  Type “Networking” into Google and you get 670,000,000 results

Type “Networking events” and your choice is from 340,000,000, for “Business Networking Events” it’s only 280,000,000

Narrowing this to “Business Networking Events UK” and a mere 106,000,000 results.

With so much choice and material available there must be reason and combined with the facts that

  • People talk about it.
  • People hear about it.
  • People want to do it more effectively.

There will be questions

  • But why? Why do people network, and what do they hope to accomplish?

This seminar will take you through the who, what why, where, when and how of networking – a whistle stop tour that will leave you better informed, more confident and inspired to network!
