What form does business networking in Cheadle, Staffordshire take?

Business networking is about making quality connections that can make a difference to your company’s bottom line. Word-of-mouth recommendations remain absolutely invaluable when it comes to promoting your company and this is what referral marketing facilitates through networking events. 

Networking meetings bring together companies to share recommendations that are built on trust, knowledge and first-hand experience. This gives those giving the recommendations, and those looking for services, confidence in the service or product they are investing in.

What happens at a networking meeting?

The formats, venues and sizes of networking meetings can change but the aim remains the same – they introduce businesses to each other so they can support each other through referrals. 

Meetings are held either at breakfast, lunch or in the early evening to allow participants to enjoy a sociable meal while networking. One member of the group will often give a presentation to the group about their work, or helpful information they have to share. 

The members will then offer referrals or thanks for work done. The group will also get the chance to socialise freely to discuss opportunities and to build connections.
