Network!Network! is a community of business development professionals, entrepreneurs and business leaders who meet monthly to find synergies and make connections that expand business. Network!Network! represents the opportunity to meet, network, develop community and business and personal relationships with other like-minded business professionals.
More than “just a network”
In addition to sharing leads that result in new business, each of our networking round-tables includes an exercise designed to generate solutions to pressing business problems.
Our monthly “Forum”, open to all Network!Network! Members, offers speakers and panel discussions on topics of current business interest. Some recent topics: Social Media Marketing, An Introduction to LinkedIn, Tax Planning and a Seminar on Cloud Computing.
After-work cocktail events provide an environment that fosters relationships across the network in a less structured and relaxed atmosphere.
Why Business Professionals Chose Network!Network!
Most clients come to us in order to drive their businesses to the next level. Some come to develop a deep resource pool in order to provide the very best service to their clients. Still others come for the forum of peers, helping to derive solutions to knotty problems. And, everybody subscribes to the mantra “Pay It Forward!”
Since we screen all applicants, our members know that they can be assured of a high degree of professionalism from everyone they meet. They can also expect to find no competition at networking round-tables. Finally, unlike other networking groups, selling directly to your Network!Network! colleagues is frowned upon. Network! Network! members do conduct business with one another, but it must first be invited in.
The centerpiece is the networking round-table. Set at breakfast in an executive conference room, the meeting is structured and moderated. The process is simple: Twice around the room, once for a two line introduction and again to allow 4 minutes for each participant to describe their business in terms that all can understand. It is always helpful to mention such things as the sweet spot of your marketplace and effective lead sources. Questions are always encouraged.
Next comes “Around the Horn!” One participant shares a current business problem. Through gentle questioning and sharing of similar experiences, the group provides a framework which enables the participant to develop his or her own solution. Finally, participants are encouraged to acknowledge others for previously offered help, such as leads or resources. This process has worked for many over the years and I am sure that it can work for you.
