Will Kintish is a UK leading authority in Business Networking Skills training
At the heart of what I do is simple. I show you how to develop your online networking skills.
In our new world where, at the moment, we can’t shake hands, ‘work the room’ or easily read the other person’s body language how can we ensure all the time we spend, on Zoom and other virtual communication channels is of value? There is nothing to beat ‘real’ networking but when you and I plan our strategy and take regular effective action I believe we can get close to the genuine thing.
The future of networking
I think you will agree there is a groundswell of opinion that the business community is embracing online communication because it has to. But what happens when we can return to coffee shops for 1-2-1’s, conferences and networking events? My prediction is for years to come and maybe for ever, both forms of networking will become the norm. One major benefit will be the time and cost savings.
It’s now nearly a year since we have had to network and present online. I fear we are going to continue the same way for the rest of this year and maybe beyond. At the start we were all prepared to accept “second best” as we thought it was just temporary. But now, the online way of working is here for the longer term, so second best will no longer do. We all need to be “at the top of our game” online as clients and general connections now expect a professional and first-class approach to online networking and presentations.
We were all forgiven In the Spring for making errors and blunders when we thought it was all going to blow over. But now the reality of the situation has now sunk in, our network is going to expect our online communications to be as top class as it was before Covid appeared.

I have personally helped thousands of people become confident and effective networkers by delivering business networking tips, techniques and training to professionals, in the widest sense, in the UK and throughout the world.
Many of my courses are CPD accredited and presentations to Solicitors, Barristers, Accountants, Academics, Banking and Insurance, Property Professionals, and Non-profits have helped professionals in these specialised industries to maximise their return from the numerous social and business related networking events they find themselves attending.
As a published author and an international keynote speaker, I have been able to introduce my Business Networking philosophy to a much wider audience and am now heavily involved in preparing the young professionals of the future in the skills needed to effectively network by working closely with universities and colleges in the Academic Community producing customised in-house courses.
As the world becomes more reliant on IT the vital personal skills of networking and face-to-face communication is often overlooked. I addresses this oversight in an extremely informative, fun and professional manner.
