A visit to Network 4 Business
The beginning of a new year is a time for reflecting on the year that has passed and looking forward to the year to come. It is in this light that I would like to share an experience that I had with Network 4 Business last year.
My name is Heather Wheatley and I am the copy writer for Pixel Labs, a member company of Network 4 Business. Before Christmas, I visited one of Network 4 Business’ friday breakfast networking meetings alongside Martin Wood from Pixel Labs (who occupies the marketing seat at Network 4 Business). I had been rather anxious before the meeting given that I had never been to this kind of networking event before. However, I could not have asked for a more welcoming introduction.
Every member of the network could not have been more welcoming in including me in discussions and business relevant conversations. When we arrived at the meeting the atmosphere was not only relaxed, but there was also a great sense of teamwork and camaraderie between the members. To begin each session, once breakfast has been enjoyed of course, everyone stands up in turn and gives a two minute update about what they have been doing in their respective businesses. This is usually followed by encouragement; and the exchange of helpful contacts or information. Every single member seemed genuinely delighted to see other members achieving and growing in their respective fields.
This was then followed by a longer 10 minute presentation. This rotates through a planned schedule of speakers, giving every member, and some guest speakers, a chance to tell everyone at the meeting about their business and how they can help the other members through their skills or services. This was met with curiosity and encouragement again from all of the members and I was very pleasantly surprised at the way that each member supported each other’s ideas and contributions throughout this entire meeting.
The meeting then ends with a second chance to exchange contacts and useful information between members; and a chance to talk more in depth between members about potential business opportunities.
With a whole new year ahead, why not give yourself the very best opportunity to grow your business relationships with a welcoming and encouraging group of people. Simply get in touch with us and come for a no obligation visit, either to see if you could become a member or just to talk to the group about your company as a guest presenter.
