"Why is it called “Networking with a Twist”?"
We call it with a twist because it’s different to what you’re used to. Our events aren’t just about shaking hands and exchanging business cards. We find out about you and your networking goals so that from the moment you arrive you’ll be welcomed and introduced to relevant and related people. Our unique conversation cards help to explore and explain your business and listen to other business owners do the same. You’ll find that asking and answering questions helps to generate thought-provoking conversations that feel natural from the start and will continue after the event.
Because time is precious and NOT a renewable resource, business professionals must maximise their networking opportunities to grow leads and nurture relationships.
Each individual should be accountable for how they plan, prepare and follow up when using networking as an integral part of their marketing strategy for business growth.
