Isla and I were at the Swindon Connections networking event this month representing the Swindon Coaching Team. It was a good turn out with many visiting our stand interested to find out more about what Coaching has to offer.
The presentation for the evening was given by Brad Burton managing director of 4 networking. His approach was down to earth and thought provoking, making several interesting points such as:
- It doesn’t matter who you speak to when networking, if they do not bring you business they may know someone who will
- Be yourself, because people buy from ‘people’
- Accept you will make mistakes in business
- Be committed to your business idea and stick with it, because others,who might be your competition, may drop out during the recession
Finally, we would like to congratulate Kevin Belson photography for winning a coaching session as part of our regular competition at the connections event.
