I recently joined the 4Networking organisation - as I work from a rural location, it can become isolated at times. I thought it would be an effective way of marketing my business, raise my profile and meet other like-minded folk.
The meetings are structured, yet informal. So what actually happens? All meetings are held Tuesday - Friday, 8am - 10am (nationwide), with the following schedule:
8am - Open networking (informal)
8.30am - 40 second round - your chance to promote your business to the group and note who you would like to talk to. (This is done while eating your breakfast).
9.00am - coffee break and organise your 1-2-1 appointments
9.10am - 4Sight Slot - An insight into a member's specialist field
9.25am - the start of your 1-2-1 meetings
10am - finish
If you think you and your business could benefit from networking, check out the website, there is probably a meeting near you.
