Would you like to learn how to get more from face-to-face networking? Come to the next #focusonmarketing!
JUST £10 FOR MARKETING IDEAS TO APPLY TO YOUR BUSINESS NOW, PLUS ADVICE FROM A PROFESSIONAL MARKETER!
As you've either been or have shown an interest in attending a #focusonmarketing session, I'd love to invite you to our next session:
What is #focusonmarketing?
If you didn't know already, #focusonmarketing is a regular group masterminding session aimed at bringing small business owners together to learn about the latest marketing thinking, how to apply it to their business and get ideas and inspiration from other local business folk. There's no jargon, no formality and you'll definitely go away inspired
Do I have to do a '60 seconds'?
No! #focusonmarketing is an informal session. You don't have to do a 60 second pitch (just introduce yourself) and if you're shy, then don't worry - you can listen (but we'd love to know what you think).
7:30-7:45 - Claire opens the session, plus intros from everyone
7:45-8:00 - Discussion - 'What makes a great networking pitch?'
8:00-8:10 - Huddle - split into groups to discuss ideas for effective networking - here's where we come up with some top tips to all take away with us
8:10-8:30 - Present findings from 'huddles'
8:30-8:45 - BREAK (refreshments available to buy from the Hive)
8:45-9:15 - Open discussion and specific questions on networking - what do you need help with? Are you stuck for ideas? Ask the group and we can all help each other
9:15-9:30 - Action - learning points from the evening, plus tasks for next time
9:30 - CLOSE
Where and when is it?
The next event is at 7:30pm on Wednesday 11th September 2013 at the Hive Music & Media Centre on Belmont in the centre of Shrewsbury. I'd recommend parking in the St Julians car park, which is free after 6 and only a couple of minutes walk away. If you're stuck, give the Hive a call on 01743 234970 or visit http://www.hiveonline.org.uk/parking/ for further information on where to park
Please arrive by 7:15pm so that we can get settled in and get a cuppa before starting
How much does it cost?
The event costs £10 which is payable via PayPal before the event.
This is excellent value for a 2 hour workshop!
What do I need to bring?
Bring a pen and paper and feel free to bring business cards in case you make some useful contacts, but this isn't a networking event. We'd love to see some people collaborating as a result though!
So, your prep is this - come along with a burning question about how you could improve your networking strategy. And, come along with something you've tried that you'd recommend to everyone else - perhaps a great local networking group you've found or ideas for a perfect pitch. We all have a contributions to make here and we'll all come away with some useful info!
Looking forward to seeing you there!
IF YOU CAN'T ATTEND, PLEASE GIVE 48 HOURS NOTICE SO WE CAN OFFER YOUR SPACE TO SOMEONE ON THE WAITING LIST! :)
