Your Network Training

When it comes to building, nurturing and leveraging your network of relationships, quality outweighs quantity and the old maxim of it’s not what you know but who you know isn’t always helpful either. In larger businesses, who knows you is far better measure of your potential success. It’s less about networking the room and more about being in the right room. Many people are happy with the idea of building a network, most are happy with the idea that you need to nurture your relationships but women are often less comfortable about leveraging – maximising – those relationships for their personal gain.

The session will enable you to understand what makes an effective networker and help you to build powerful connections to meet your business (and personal) objectives. This is a highly inter-active workshop.

Learning objectives:

  • you understand the 5 key characteristics of an effective networker
  • you develop the mind-set, behaviours and values of an effective networker
  • you can identify key connections within their network of relationships
  • you can measure the outcomes of their networking activities

Max. 20 participants

Duration: 3 hours

Learning materials are included.

Personal 1-on-1 coaching

It is also possible to have a tailor-made one-on-one coaching session. You decide on the topics and content of this session together with the trainer. The coaching session is set a convenient date and time for both you and the trainer.

Duration: a minimum of 3 hours
