The first Cheshire Business Networking of 2022 took place on the 1st February at the Lighting From Lit showroom in Bramhall Stockport. The Mayor and Mayoress of Stockport Town Council came to visit and had a brilliant time speaking to businesses. It was a very good turn out with local businesses attending.
In this month’s article, we’ll define business networking, look at the different types of networking events available to you, and outline the main benefits of attending a B2B networking event.
Over the last two weeks, the team here at The Cheshire Business Directory have been inundated with inquiries from businesses across Cheshire and Greater Manchester. With normality now in our grasp, businesses are working harder than ever to be seen and heard. But with these raft of changes, expectations and additional pressures, it’s far too easy for those work-life balance scales to become misaligned.
Networking is your chance to gain new business and create a strong support network. It really is true: professional peers are often better than friends or family at championing our businesses. New contacts can support you in strengthening and driving your business forward. And it’s widely understood that we are more likely to recommend colleagues with whom we’ve formed strong professional relationships.
Thank you for the Wilmslow Guardian and Cheshire Independent for a brilliant press release on the Alderley Edge and Cheshire Virtual Christmas Market...
On the 14th February, Mottram Hall hosted Cheshire Business Directory’s first networking event. The room was a hive of activity, with businesses from right across Cheshire sharing ideas, forging new connections and igniting plans to develop future professional partnerships. Directory colleagues from Rolls-Royce delighted attendees further by showcasing one of their stunning vehicles. The feedback we received from attendees was superb.
