About this event

What will I get out of it?

This course will improve your understanding of strategic and sustainable business networking and provide you with the skills to navigate both the virtual networking and live event networking .

It will give you the tools to network better, the opportunity to construct and test the most effective networking pitch, and the skills to use for networking events to your advantage.

It is often frustrating to communicate the value of what you offer and difficult to grow your business and progress your career by networking.

Communicating the value of your offering precisely to someone with an entirely different mindset, in a very short time, surrounded by many distractions, often looks too complicated. But is just a skill, like any other, perfectly accessible, and not restricted by your personality type. This course will help you tap into the wealth of useful contacts to grow your company and progress your career.

The best way to network is to have a clear and simple structure that doesn’t break under stress and isn’t affected by the unpredictability of live events. The Five Simple Steps method, tried and tested in the demanding conditions of the City of London over six years, allows you to make genuine, personal contacts without wasting valuable time and getting tangled in the networking process.

Who is the course leader?

Beatrice Freeman is an acclaimed business networking strategist. She developed her own networking method having had to network daily for an innovative software company in the City of London. An introvert, but also former performing arts professional, Beatrice has honed to perfection a simple method that allows you to attend networking events every day, get precise results, avoid frustration and make valuable contacts.

We’ll address the practical problems you face in live events. We’ll work in a small group where you will get to build your perfect pitch, try it out, make it more precise, see how it registers and adjust it to maximum impact. You will follow a precise process that leads to the best results. We’ll address specific issues that you have encountered in previous situations and turn a dooming failure into a smooth operation. We’ll examine how to grow your network in the best, time-efficient and cost-effective way, and assess which direction it should take.
