Ahead of the Future Foundations Networking Evening, Mark Herring, Urbano's Founder & Connector-In-Chief will be hosting this special Networking Masterblast - a bitesize training and development session for in-person and online networking.

For many new joiners of firms, especially graduates, apprentices and other junior members of your company, networking can seem a daunting and frankly unenjoyable prospects. This Networking MasterBlast will give attendees the skills and confidence to both enjoy networking and make the most of opportunities it presents. The hour-long session will cover the art of conversations, introductions, and following-up, including online and on-screen using channels such as Teams and Zoom.

* Please note: this session and the Future Foundations networking evening that follows it are open to members and non-members of Urbano and the usual restrictions on Urbano events for non-members DO NOT APPLY for both. They also must be booked separately, though we can take group bookings for either event over the phone. Contact the office for all enquiries.

For those who book this event, practice your new skills by booking the Future Foundations event afterwards. Details & booking here.

The Networking MasterBlast can be adapated for in-house and inter-departmental events to include elements of team building and bonding. This pan-company session will give your team the tools to make their networking more effective by removing any concerns about talking to a room full of strangers and making it actually enjoyable.

Testimonials (on previous seminars and workshops run by Mark)

"I'm a fairly hard taskmaster, so don't give out too many 'Excellents' lightly on surveys, but I took a lot from the session and enjoyed the relaxed nature of the presentation. It was the first time I had attended such an event feeling focussed and fully committed to networking becoming an increasingly bigger part of my role within the company. It has encouraged me to embrace the role with a bit less cynicism. A very worthwhile event."

"Networking is what I've done in every job I've worked in, but all those years of actively doing them have been useless. Finally, Mark has shown me how every person who wants to grow their business should all look at networking with far more importance and effort. Becoming members of Urbano was a fresh lease of life for us, it opened our eyes to enormous and what seems to be endless opportunities! Thank you Mark and team!"
