The fundamentals of business networking

Fundamentals of Business Networking by Helen Bennett, Owner and Director of The Business Network
We have been providing a platform for business networking offering business leaders the opportunity to connect and collaborate for well over 20 years. In that time the huge advances in technology have helped streamline our business communications and the management of our events, and yet the fundamental aim of networking remains unchanged; to provide business leaders with the opportunity to meet and share ideas, discuss challenges and opportunities, and ultimately build strong relationships. In this article I would like to summarise 5 key benefits inherent in business networking, and then show how The Business Network can deliver them for you.

Increased visibility
The Business Network can help you increase your visibility and credibility within your field and make it easier for you to remain in the minds of potential clients and partners. We do that by offering members the opportunity to either deliver one of our monthly seminars, take advantage of a speaking slot, or submit articles to our digital magazine and websites.

Enhanced professional development
The Business Network can provide you with access to valuable resources and learning opportunities from experts in their field. This is achieved by providing access to a diary of monthly in-person seminars as well as online webinars.

Access to new opportunities
Through The Business Network you can create new opportunities for yourself and your business. You can learn about new projects, meet potential customers and partners, expand your knowledge base and remain ‘current’. (In fact, this article has been part-written using the latest Openai.com platform).

Greater connections
The Business Network can help you to develop relationships with people who can help you and your business grow. Through The Business Network, you can build a strong network of like-minded professionals.

Increased confidence
The Business Network can help you to gain confidence in yourself and your abilities. You can learn from other professionals, share experiences and ideas, and build relationships that can help you become a more successful businessperson.

We have remained true to our format over the years because it works – and it works because of commitment, support and encouragement of the business leaders who attend. As long-standing member Colin Cameron, Managing Director at Mutech Limited, kindly commented, “You seem to be able to produce the right combination of people being both friendly and business orientated.”

The satisfying results when you do get the support of business leaders are stories such as this one from Intersol Global, where Director Ian Hynes recently sent me this update. “I joined The Business Network as a sole trader and from the outset the journey has been better enabled and facilitated by many fellow members of The Business Network and the supportive patronage of yourself and Russell. Without that support and encouragement, we would not have made the progress we have or developed into the people we are! We’ve just taken on our 40th contracted employee and retained our 12th client for workplace investigation support. Next year marks our 10th anniversary in business and we will be formally launching our workplace mediation services.”

It is stories like Ian’s that make us continue to do what we do.
