Networking tips proved a popular subject when the Women in Business Regional Network held its latest lunch at the Smiling Samoyed Brewery at Myponga.
Almost 30 women from across the Fleurieu, Southern Suburbs and Adelaide gathered to hear Nan Berrett, of Word Solutions in the Clare Valley, provide advice on how she had built success through networking.
As well as encouraging the women to work on an elevator pitch, and to follow up promptly with people they’d met, Nan also provided tips on how to network amid the challenges of the pandemic and interacting online.
She warned about the risks of having all networking and contacts via social media, leaving a business at risk of being in trouble if networks went down or changed policies.
An email list which was backed up regularly, was essential for any business.
This was the last McLaren Vale/Southern Suburbs chapter function for 2021 and planning is underway for events in 2022. Details will be announced over the next few weeks.
The Women in Business Regional Network is open to business owners, managers, staff and those dreaming of owning their own business.
People don’t have to be a member to attend events, but bookings are essential via Eventbrite.
