How to network
Looking at the different forms of networking and the skills required
How to be referable both as a business but, more importantly, as a person.
Having spent over 20 years in a 'relationship building' industry Brian is passionate in his belief that business is about people not products. After all, it's the people that make the decisions who they deal with.
The evening will end with a 30 minute session to put into practice what you've learnt, network with fellow JCI members and non members and enjoy a few nibbles.
