This unique one hour approach is packed full of instantly usable tips and tricks which are common sense but not common practice.
This seminar covers:

• All the main elements, advantages, problems and fears of networking in particular:
- How do you approach and prepare for your networking?
- How do you gain confidence and lose trepidation?
- Who should you speak to?
- What do you say?
- Why do all effective networkers act counterintuitively?
- How do you escape from a fruitless conversation?
- Importantly, how do you follow up?
This highly practical and humorous session from Colin Tweedie of CJT Consulting will benefit professionals, consultants, business owners and executives at any experience level – indeed, anyone who attends face-to-face networking events or conducts one-to-one conversations with clients, targets, suppliers, potential referrers etc.
Each participant will take away a one-page mind map to act as a blueprint for all future networking events.
Colin Tweedie of CJT Consulting spent 30 years as a highly-successful lawyer and business generator in four of the largest law firms in the country. It was here he learned, first-hand, the power of effective networking as a wonderful way of acquiring clients and valuable long-term business. He specialises in going in-house to train people to become great face-to-face networkers. He turns the fearful and uncertain (most people) into confident, effective and motivated networkers – and in as short a time as possible.
"Colin was very engaging and the mind map was extremely informative. A lot of advice was taken on in just one hour and I now feel more confident about approaching my next networking event."
“If you think you're a great networker still go along, I can assure you that you will learn something!”
