Business Networking Camberley Surrey

Business Networking Camberley Surrey

Business Networking Camberley Surrey a guide for small business owners.

Small business is a lonely place for the sole-trader, the owner operator, the jack of all trades.

Across the country, however, there are business networking groups of like-minded business owners, each meeting with the aim of building their business network and to help drive more business.

It’s been said you need to be a ninja in business, learning skills in finance, administration, marketing, social media – the list goes on and on. But where do you meet trusted local professionals to help you with the parts of the business that you have no skills in?

Networking can get a nasty reputation at times, with targets, referral slips, etc. but the whole point is to build relationships with local business people, like you and me. We each have a circle of friends who at times need other tradespeople or professionals, and because they know and trust us, they will likely trust the people we recommend.

One networking group I regularly attend in Camberley, Surrey is 4Networking, held at the Windlesham Golf Course in Bagshot, Surrey.  The beautifully landscaped groups and modern light and airy clubhouse give the perfect relaxed atmosphere for the regular meetings.

A few of the people you could have met at today’s networking included:

  • Graham Harding a chocolatier providing branded chocolate for business and events
  • Tony Donnaghue an IT expert providing support to small businesses
  • Rogan Howsell-Roberts an Enterprise Architect helping small business develop systems to grow
  •  Armand Chaudhary an international hospitality expert helping hotels grow their business
  • And many many more.

It’s all about connections, whether connecting computers or connecting people, it’s all about bringing two parties together for mutual benefit.

As a specialist dog photographer it’s really easy to think that there’s no one of value in the room at a business networking event, but how wrong can you be!

Small businesses revolve around suppliers and partnerships, and being a dog photographer is no different.

Knowing an accountant, a graphic designer, a web designer are just a few of the essential tools you need in your arsenal as a business owner, and business networking events are a great way to meet them and build trust and relationships, educating them about your business, before you actually need them. Then there’s the added benefit that they are going to tell others about what you do.

That’s the icing on the cake.

Each year there are literally thousands of opportunities to get out networking, from industry events, chamber of commerce, then specialist networking groups – First Friday, BNI, 4networking, Museli Mafia, there are literally hundreds across the country.

One recent meeting at 4N Reading introduced me during a 10minute one to one to Simon Scholes of Perception Studios. With a background in radio and television roles, both behind and in front of the camera, Simon gave an insightful talk into how to present yourself both online, on the radio and on video.

The PATS Show 2018 – Pet Business Photography

The PATS Show 2018 – Pet Business Photography

After a hectic few weeks at Crufts and The Photography Show, you’d think I’d have had my fill of exhibitions for the year.

Staying ahead of the pack was the title of my recent photography talk and I’m always looking for new and creative ways to find out what’s going on in the pet industry first and then find ways to get in front of my target clients.

Understanding your client needs is important to all businesses yet often photographers and artists then not to work with the end in mind.

Events like PATS hosted at the beautiful Epson Racecourse, gives me an excellent opportunity to see the latest products on the market and how they are being promoted.

Visual assets are everywhere and you can clearly see how different images and styles are used for banners, displays and point of sale equipment.

It really doesn’t matter whether you are a dog walker or a multi national pet food manufacturer, engaging a professional photographer that’s aware of your brand, your existing marketing and really can make your campaign a success or a failure.
