Course Benefits

On any given day in London alone, there are hundreds of different networking events going on. After attending Propeller’s Business Networking training course, delegates will be able to prioritise which events are most effective for their business needs.

Once at the event they will have the polish and confidence to smoothly build connections and more importantly to follow these opportunities up afterwards in a professional way.

Face to face networking will be readily complimented by the effective use of social media platforms such as ‘Linked in’ and ‘Twitter’ in order to stay in touch and build the relationship when face to face contact is not possible.

The end result is that, delegates using the course techniques will be able to identify a tranche of cheaper suppliers and new strategic partnering opportunities as well as growing sales by identifying and selling to new customers.

An excellent training session with some extremely useful and practical pointers to take forward. The workshop was pitched at exactly the right level fr our business needs.”
