Networking skills for the Insurance and Banking communities
The business talk is all about growth, new openings and a general positive outlook for the economy.
But how do these opportunities arrive? There can only be 2 ways. One is to do a good job, provide a great service and trust in recommendations and referrals. That is good news but it means you are relying on 3rd parties to dictate the speed of growth of your business.
The other method is to be proactive and create relationships through extending your own network by attending more business events. It’s called networking, an activity which produces great results but only when done effectively and with confidence.
Most people admit they have a negative approach to this fundamental business skill. “I don’t like selling; it’s dirty; I find it very uncomfortable.”
