Making Friends in Business

 

I have just returned from a week skiing in the French Alps on what is now the annual #Netski trip organised by Warren Cass www.warrencass.com. The party was made up of 20 business people who have become friends through organised networking. This year they included leaders from 4networking www.4networking.biz, Business-Scene www.business-scene.com, Directors Centre http://www.directorscentre.co.uk, Ecademy www.ecademy.com, Tax Advice Network www.taxadvicenetwork.co.uk and NRG-networks www.nrg-networks.com. 
In the organised networks we run we help business owners, professionals and entrepreneurs to develop business through networking. This works if you focus on building relationships first with the right people. Do the right things and business follows. Nobody on the skiing trip was selling to each other yet business was done and referred. Relationships first, business second.
I overheard a conversation between one of our party and someone else on a lift. The other person had asked what organised business networking was all about. After the reply he said, "I see, you're in the friends making business."
Friends are people you know well and like. They show loyalty, affection and offer help and support. All things that you need in running your business!
Friends first, business second.
Good Networking!
