Do you find yourself saying the following things?
"I know people who should be referring us but they don't seem to want to."
"We don't get enough sales appointments"
"How do we stand out in a crowded market?"
"The people I know well or who I meet at events aren't talking to the people I need to meet."
"I don't like to be pushy and ask for referrals."
Are you are looking to increase sales, raise your profile, generate new connections or upskill your team?
Are different divisions within your business supporting and looking for opportunities for each other?
Are you someone who is simply looking to develop their career with the help of existing connections?
The Right Tools
In the current economic climate, many companies have tight budgets and need to assess how to improve their network, both online and off. Individuals looking to progress their careers or find a new job in a more restricted market need the help of their contacts more than ever.
This can be a daunting task for anyone and having the right tools at your finger tips, using your existing network, is invaluable. Raising your profile by relationship marketing will help you meet your revenue targets efficiently and quickly, all within budget.
It is not only networking face to face and relationship building in person which is important. Social networking and on-line communities are becoming more and more relevant. Andy will be able to show you the key skills needed for raising your profile on-line, from those who are complete beginners to people who are comfortable with social networks but want to use them much more effectively.

Developing a strategic approach to your networking will help you tap into your full potential, work more effectively and open more doors. Whether is it generating more business from your network, feeling more comfortable working a room, getting your name more widely known or getting the introductions that make a difference, Andy can help you achieve these goals, producing real results and significantly changing you or your company’s prospects for the future.
