The answer to your question….

June 20, 2013

From a recent conversation on LinkedIn

Does this answer the question as to whether networking is beneficial…..

Hi Sean

I hope you are well.

When is your next networking event and do you think it would be beneficial for me to attend one?

IE to meet with potential contacts who maybe interested in purchasing new fitness equipment or require new gym designs or support for their existing gym / health club?

Kind Regards

Hello James

Thank you for your message – I am bound to say yes! Networking events are beneficial in many ways not solely to meet people who may want what ever it is you’re selling – saying that you never know – it’s all about the conversations that you have and the questions that are asked.

Networking is effective because you are not just looking at those you meet but also those that they know and again the conversations that you have will open up opportunities.

Those that come to the events are predominantly SME’s – the owners and directors of those companies (99% of all businesses in the UK have 1 – 49 people employed) so they are all successful and working with all sorts of other businesses – they are also consumers – they may have gyms at home!

I guess what I am saying is that come along – if the location is convenient – experience an event and go from there.

I also add that the seminars that (my events have them) networkings events often have are always worthwhile.

Dates are 3/7/13 – Exeter and 10/7/13 Bristol and all dates for 2013 are here

Have a great day

Best regards
