Open Networking

Hosted by Claire Lawrence

8th June, 2021 8:00 am

This month we are devoting the entire 90 minutes to open networking. This will give our members more time to introduce their businesses and explain what help they need from other members to help their business to grow.

Our host Claire Lawrence will also be inviting those business owners who register in advance to be considered for our popular Business Highlight slot. In this slot we hear more from one of our business owners via a series of Q&As with Claire. Claire will explore with you your motivations for getting up your business, how you help your customers and what help you need from club members to help you grow your business.

We will then use our virtual breakout rooms to enable smaller groups to network.

We look forward to welcoming you to our meeting.

When you plan your communications strategically, you look at your business goals and work out how communicating well with your audiences will help you achieve them. They receive, understand and respond to what you are saying – you don’t just ‘throw’ things at them. In this talk I will share general tips and a specific technique for getting to the heart of your communication purpose. You will be able to create more powerful responses to your website, newsletter or social media activity.
