Attended the Welsh Business Show on Thursday at Cardiff City football ground, met some very interesting people including Stefan Thomas who gave a seminar on making more sales from networking.
Very informative and a real insight into the way in which we can make and grow sound business contacts.
Being slightly less formal in your approach and getting your 40 second pitch just right in your head before you engage with people was a subject that was covered and made real sense.
The inclusion of video on your website which statistics show engages visitors to your website rather than simply depending on imagery was also a valid point.
These types of events are sometimes dismissed as too time consuming to attend or as something that will not benefit companies, this can be true of course but from my own personal point of view and as a method of making and meeting some new contacts it is a hugely valuable day out.
