"One of the most valuable tools you bring to the table as a mentor is your network. And networks - like anything else - can get stale. If you want to be a great mentor, you need to keep networking and keep your network strong. Vikas Shah, MBE "
Business Networking Re-Visited . What works now?
“Networking: A discussion around what alternative methods of networking and business development you consider effectively engages you and/or your clients.”
Many things have changed recently, however our professional network is still a crucial asset, and we need to find ways of continuing to build relationships with the same mutual benefit that applied when we met in person.
It's no longer about exchanging business cards at a physical event, that are rarely actioned upon. Now it's about building trust via better personal relationship building as well as displaying some empathy and humility. "Can I help you with anything?" and win-win collaboration rather than what's in it for me.
We all need to increase our sphere of influence via a mindful form of networking that may, in fact start via Zoom. We can all meet in person when the time is right but Zoom represents a major opportunity for Business Networking, as we can meet with business people from all over the world without moving from our PC.
Strong listening skills are paramount as we can learn so much from others. And as individuals, we all have our own networks that we could optimise to better effect for the good of others.
Finally, we all need to perfect a succinct positioning statement about who we are and what we do. In Business Networking it's best to focus on your core skills as that's much more memorable to others to recommend you on. If you're too much the generalist it's far less effective.
Andrew and Caroline will host a discussion around what is working or not and what other options do you have in Dubai, the UK or Internationally. This is an open discussion to share your experience so far and the approach that you have found successful- or not.
As we know, Business networking remains a key conduit to new opportunities, both personal and professional.
We will discuss:
Networks- how do we/they work and what is the optimal approach?
New ways of networking- Can we build a relationship on Zoom?
What other business networking works for you in Dubai/UK or Internationally?
The meeting will finish after about an hour 15 minutes with information exchanges and continued business networking, as required.
