Networking is one of those things that every business person has heard about, but can’t bring themselves to go to.
Maybe it’s because they don’t like the idea of getting up so early in the morning, it’s too expensive, don’t like promoting themselves, the idea of standing up in front of a bunch of strangers is daunting… what ever the reason, it’s something that all businesses should try.
Networking when done properly can both boost your confidence, expand your business contacts, make your business and branding know and also build a great network of people.
At the Norwich Kitty Networking Group, we think we’ve created something unique for everyone, especially those new to networking. We welcome new members into the group, introduce them to other members and make sure they know what’s going on. With our unique 30 word format we introduce everyone to the room so that everyone knows who everyone is and so making networking following the meeting more efficient. We meet in a pub every Thursday evening and the food is complimentary and provided by the venue, so all you need is money to buy a drink or two. Networking is done in a casual way over a drink, how it should be. No forced referrals and work contacts naturally evolve.
But, we want to know why you joined the Norwich Kitty Networking Group?

being a designers we didn’t want the structured networking where you turn up, have no idea who anyone is and have forced referrals and the pressure of referring to others.
also, not being very confident in public meant that didn’t like the idea of having to stand up and promote ourselves in front of others.
so the Norwich Kitty Networking Group seemed an ideal solution. 30 words to promote your business in round 1, a round 2 where you can promote testimonials, recommendations for business and anything else news wise. the group is so welcoming that I challenge anyone to not feel at ease and enjoy it. networking happens naturally as you get to know people chatting about anything really, not exclusively work related, and all over a beer!
the main reason was the unique 30 word introductions…. #genius
