Active networking and participation can help you meet like minded people and build mutually beneficial business relationships. For a pre-start, start-up or existing business whether local, national or international, networking can provide a lifeline of support and business generation through benefits such as:
Bench marking opportunities against competitors and similar-sized businesses
Comparing & Discussing issues of common interest, eg legal and regulatory developments, staff retention, supplier networks, customer service and computerisation
Developing ideas, innovation and knowledge of best practice
Staff Exchanges and secondments, eg an expert from an association or business network may join your business to oversee a specific project or you may second a graduate joiner to a supplier to learn about the supply process
Joint Skills Development for staff in your business sector which can save costs across the board because of economies of scale
Raising your Business Profile by becoming an established and regular networking member, getting your face (and the business name) known and being an active networking partner
Expanding Markets by generating business contacts such as customers, suppliers and partners
Establishing Overseas Partnerships, eg through international exhibitions and conferences
You have the opportunity to further your personal, professional and career development and your business’ growth by learning from other’s experience, understanding and knowledge and how they have dealt with similar problems or situations.
