Making contacts in the business worlds is a bit like dating – body language, eye contact, meeting of minds and a smidgen of initial attraction all help you to get that date or that first order.
Now, for the first time ever, the Nelson Mandela Bay Business Chamber will be giving its SMME members the chance to meet 29 other like-minded business owners at a morning speed networking session facilitated by Jane Stevenson and supported by Standard Bank, set up to ensure meaningful business engagement.
The strength of your network depends on who you know. This is one event the chamber guarantees will leave with a fistful of business cards and a newly-bulging contact book.
NMBBC have planned a speed networking session designed to put you in front of people representing a variety of industries, to give you a chance to talk about your services and business needs, to meet potential clients face to face and to grow your network exponentially.
Four minutes allows you the time to meet face to face with other Business Chamber members looking to grow their networks, to establish a point of personal contact from which a business relationship can grow. Seats are limited to 30, and preference will be given to members of the Nelson Mandela Bay Business Chamber.
The Speed Network event takes place at the Chamber offices on 21 June 2012 from 8:30 to 9:30 am – dress well, no flowers needed, shine those shoes and iron those business cards.
