There’s often a lot of discussion about business networking, some of the discussions generate more heat than light.
We’re sure you know someone who’s paid a substantial sum of money to join a networking group only to find you’re expected to attend every meeting without fail, you’re expected to bring a particular value of business to the group, you’re expected to make a certain number of referrals and there are fees for this, charges for that. Some of these organisations can feel a bit cult-like and a bit pressured.
Here at In Touch With Walsall we’re proud to say we’re not like that at all. Ours is a fun and relaxed organisation and, while there are rules, they’re not onerous and they’re in place to help members and support the network, and in any case they’re more like firm guidelines than hard-and-fast rules.
Networking benefits you personally and benefits your business – you can learn from others (both what to do and what not to do…), you can use members as a sounding board for new ideas, you can often get informal advice and feedback that you’d probably have to pay for under other circumstances, and more.
Here’s the #ITWW top 5 reasons why we think you should get involved:
