Business networking is the process of establishing a mutually beneficial relationship with other businesspeople and potential clients and/or customers. The primary purpose of business networking is to tell others about your business and understand theirs.
Because networking is simply building relationships. It’s all about communication. These days, with the growth of social media and the mobile phone, the art of face to face contact can sometimes be overlooked. But there can never be a substitute for making good connections, by attending both internal and external events.
For those working in the SME world it is often about raising profile and seeking out new business. Those who work in the larger business, the corporate world, your company will often be known so it is about you raising your personal profile both internally and externally.
For both groups it will be good for you to network when you want to:
- Build partnerships with other businesses
- Become more visible in other departments
- Find a new employee for your team
- Get others to know what you do
- Get others to know what your business does
- Increase your knowledge of your marketplace
- Meet key people and decision makers for future beneficial relationships

Learn – Do and Review:
Having just completed the Kintish Networking Skills Online Training Course” I wanted to provide you with some immediate feedback. As a small business owner who built an award winning video / multimedia production company for over 30 years – had The ‘Kintish Networking Skills Training’ product been available when I started, I can categorically state that I would have built my business a lot faster and created even more relationships with customers, by knowing what to say and do rather than learn by making mistakes. (There were many) The Kintish training method is a reference to “Learn – Do and Review” to fit in with the main enemy of all business’s which is TIME. Great product for a fast paced working environment which I highly recommend. Here is my certificate to prove I have been Kintished….. 😉 Onwards and Upwards to us all in 2020 and beyond.

I’ve looked at the training and really like it. Good quality short videos, with yourself, others and a mix of slides (with different audio) will help people to stay engaged. I also like how you’ve split it into the various modules.

I finished the course. I really liked the practical module with the role play; it makes it very realistic for those watching.
All you could ever want to know about networking, delivered online in a clear and practical way.
I strongly recommend this course to anyone who wants to work the room with confidence.
I really enjoyed your online course, I thought that the short modules were great for maintaining interest and that your opening intros were great for whetting the appetite.
The course is so good because it is packed with practical and easy to accomplish tasks, in a logical order.
