Networking

“It’s not what you know, it’s who you know..”

BIG’s networking events are an effective low-cost marketing technique for you to develop sales opportunities and contacts, based on referrals and introductions face-to-face. Our meetings and gatherings facilitate an environment for you to utilise various contact methods such as phone, email, and increasingly social media.

Having a solid business network of contacts is both a route to market for you, and a marketing method. Our business networking offers a way to reach decision-makers which might otherwise be very difficult to engage with using traditional conventional advertising methods.

Our business networking events brings with them the added advantage of recommendation and personal introduction, which are always very helpful for developing business opportunities.

We adopt and apply best practices and principles and techniques of business networking which are mostly common sense. Many of the behavioural principles apply also to business and relationships generally, and specifically to selling, managing, coaching, facilitating, etc.

We look forward to meeting you at our upcoming events.

Essential Networking Tips

  • Elevator speech: (Always have a 30 to 60 secs pitch for your business or idea)
  • Be different: (Stand out from the crowd so you will be remembered)
  • Help others: (When you help others you help yourself)
  • Personal integrity: (Be sincere, honest, reliable, trustworthy etc.)
  • Relevant targeting: (Don’t just cast your net wide but make it relevant to you)
  • Plans and aims: (Fail to plan and you plan to fail)
  • Follow up: (It is important to follow up your contacts whilst the lead is still hot)
  • Be positive: (Maintain a positive attitude)
  • Sustained focused effort: (It is vital to concentrate on the task at hand and stay focused)
  • Life balance: (Networking is great but don’t forget about your personal life, balance is key)
