Furniture Makers' Hall

A fast-paced, insightful presentation packed full of advice, tips and approaches that work, suitable for any person or company looking to get more out of their networking.

This Networking Masterclass is in two parts. Part One looks at how to create a strategic approach to networking as part of a marketing strategy, whereas Part Two looks at do's and don't's of networking at events and online.

Please note. These Networking Masterclasses are held directly before Urbano's monthly business networking evenings, which themselves are social and relaxed, making them a great opportunity to try out some of the ideas in the Masterclass.

Urbano networking evening events are free for Members. For non-members wishing to attend, please enter the word 'masterclass' when booking this event and you can attend the evening at Furniture Makers Hall for the combined price of £60 per person.

"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."

All facets of networking will be examined, including: How to approach event networking; How to find the right events for you and to make best use of your time; how to develop contacts into valuable connections; how to use platforms like LinkedIn and Twitter as networking tools, and your own website. He will even show the shy how starting a conversation is easy and the hard-bitten how networking can also be fun.
