Exploring the principles and practices that can help us painlessly and purposefully meet the people we want to meet.

Networking is so often the last thing we want to do. A daunting prospect, a necessary evil in modern work. How can we re-frame this, and treat networking as a way to practice and build our communication skills and create meaningful new connections in the process?

We'll cover:

• Our purpose for networking

• The habits of great networkers

• Playing to natural strengths

• Applying simple listening techniques

• The roe of trust and how to build it

• Reciprocity

• Reframing fear as opportunity

• Networking in the digital age

We build capability

We help organisations of all shapes and sizes to become more capable in pursuit of their goals.

To do this we focus on what we believe to be the three key drivers of organisational capability — People, Purpose and Partnerships. Whether through our open learning programmes, or tailored consultancy work; we love bringing together creatively-minded groups to work and learn in modern and motivating ways.
