What is the seminar before THE networking lunch? 
“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 “business networking” and you get 433,000,000 results, “business networking events uk” 65,400,000 results and a mere 210,000 results for business “networking events exeter”. But why?
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.
  • You have heard that it works
  • You have heard that it is a “waste of time”
There will be questions
  • But why?
  • Why do people network?
  • What do they hope to accomplish?
  • Why are there scare stories?
  • Could networking work for you and Business Network (SW) Ltd
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!  Hosted by Sean Humby – Director and host at Business Network (SW) Ltd – the UK’s longest running monthly, lunchtime networking organisation.
What do you gain from attending this event?
At each event you will have the opportunity to meet numerous other senior decision makers from locally based businesses in a relaxed and focused environment. Through networking over coffee before the seminar, knowledge from the seminar and structured networking before and during the lunch. It is a proven way and sustainable way of continuing to develop opportunities.
  • You will generate opportunities that will enhance your business
  • You will build mutually beneficial relationships with other decision makers
  • The networking is relaxed and comfortable
  • You will the opportunity to promote your business and expertise
  • You will build a team of advocates and ambassadors for your business
  • You will generate an ROI on your networking

What is my return?
A recent Tweet from a Business Network SW member…………………….
