Why Do You Go To Networking Events?

  • Do you go to buy products and services from other business owners? - NO!
  • Do you go to sell your products and services to other business owners? - NO!

Networking is about building relationships, establishing valuable connections, and gaining knowledge so that you can create opportunities. It’s about starting conversations that you can continue outside the event and building trust. Networking events can and do lead to more business opportunities, partnerships, and sales, but that is not their primary purpose.

"The networking was brilliant- not only the idea but the tips and how to approach it with no ‘sales pitch’ or ‘elevator pitch’ was very refreshing”.

M.Dulberg, WebbyWeb Designs, 2016

 

Why “Networking with a Twist”?

Because we’re different.

Have you ever gone a networking event and been:-

•   Monopolised by someone who was trying to make a sale?

•   Interrupted every time you found someone worth listening to by the ‘agenda’?

•   Inundated with business cards… most of them meaningless and irrelevant?

•   Frustrated because you didn’t get to talk to anyone relevant?

•   Awkward and embarrassed because you didn’t know anyone and didn’t want to interrupt?

We have… and we hate it! As business owners ourselves, we know time is a scarce and non-renewable resource. Yet networks are critical if we are to gain access to the people, services, products, and ideas we need. That’s why we designed a different type of networking event that delivers maximum value in minimum time and makes sure you aren’t standing on your own.

Your Time Matters “Networking With A Twist” Events are designed to:

•   Create relevant meaningful conversations that lead to opportunities

•   Deliberately match you with like-minded business owners that can help you achieve your networking goals

•   Ensure you gain maximum value from the time and money you invest in networking

 

 

“Wonderful. Met relevant business contacts. Following up with at least three. I have attended networking groups for years…yours was the first group to give real contacts and with you knowing and making introductions was great”.

F. Pappa, August, 2016

 

What Happens at a “Networking With A Twist” Event?

•   2 1/2 hours of open networking and matched conversations giving you plenty of time to talk and listen to others

•   2 x tables of 6-8 strategically matched, like-minded business owners to have timed discussions with (so no one monopolises the conversation)

•   YTM’s UNIQUE  Conversation Starter cards to create meaningful discussions (great for improving conversation skills)
