Objectives Reached has been researching and attending networking events in Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridge Shire and beyond for over a year. With this wealth of knowledge we are now launching our very own business networking programme of events called Gathering.local2you.com
When joining networks people seem to ask three questions.
What type of Network should I join?
There are those people who prefer the formality of BNI whilst others like the turn up and chat over breakfast as Wymondham Business Forum does. However, we feel the majority of people wish for something in between.
How much will it cost me?
When people are setting up a new business the cost of networking is important to them. For businesses that are established networking fees are not the issue for them, it is will they meet and build relationships with substantial potential customers. To balance these very different requirements we created three levels of membership, and have created opportunities for everyone to meet.
What commitment do I have to make?
Time for some people is their top concern, whilst for others who are working on their own, meeting people is a higher priority. It is clear some people turn up at networking events just once, hand out and collect as many cards as possible and believe this is all they have to do. We believe the benefits of networking are built overtime. To assist busy members we will allow them to decide if they or a colleague attends, we accept that professional managers will analyse the benefits of networking against other priorities.
This program will be free to paid-
Examples of service that will be available to members on ‘Pay as you use’:
There are many aspects to Local2you.com like Training.Local2you where trainers can advertise courses and if required we can offer booking online. This service will only be charged for where bookings are received from the listing.
CallInfo.Local2you gives those members managing home workers or staff in branches the same control and information that most call centre managers use. Members pay a small fee for the service when it is being used. All incoming and outgoing calls will be directed via your own telephone system giving total control.
