Are you an SME owner or professional who’s role includes representing your organisation at online networking events and forums? Do you sometimes feel held back by shyness or out of your comfort zone? If you do, this dynamic and practical session is the perfect way to learn new skills and techniques, to help you overcome the nerves and start networking with confidence.

Right now, it’s probably more important than ever for businesses to maintain and strengthen their professional networks. As we all know, with movement restricted, this has now become challenging in terms of meeting face-to-face, leading to a surge in online networking opportunities.

As most of us know, engaging on screen presents a whole host of new challenges, so it’s more important than ever to understand the techniques for making an impact and getting your message across succinctly and memorably. Interacting via online networking platforms doesn’t have to be nerve-racking, on the contrary - done right it can be fun, rewarding and most of all instrumental in building relationships and doing more business.

Who should attend this session?

This session is aimed at SME professionals seeking to improve their online networking skills. It’s expected to prove particularly valuable at a time when more and more of us are attending online events and interacting over cloud-based video conferencing platforms.

Please note that preference will be given to businesses based in Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.

What will we cover?

  • Introducing yourself with confidence, developing chemistry and building a natural rapport. 

  • Making a strong connection with the people you meet. 

  • Keeping the conversation flowing by asking the right questions and engaging on a genuine level. 

  • Staying in touch after the event, to build a strong and profitable network with ease.

  • The ability to overcome shyness and engage in more online networking with confidence.
