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.

The Lead Gen Academy

The Lead Gen Academy

Until a few weeks ago, I had never heard of the Lead Gen Academy, but after a quick conversation at a networking event I knew it was something that I needed to find out more about.

If you have ever run a business, then you will know that you need to much much more than one skill set.

Being a professional photographer means so much more than being just a professional artist.

You need excellent financial management skills, for the peaks and troughs through the year, but most of all you need to become a shameless marketeer.

One of the greatest relationships I have built this year since being back in Surrey is through business networking.

At a 4Networking event in Camberley earlier this year I bumped into a talented entrepreneur called Richard Woods.

Richard has a real talent for business, he even spent a summer with Lord Sugar in his antics on television called The Apprentice.

One of Richards great recent entrepreneurial projects is The Lead Gen Academy. The life source of all businesses is generating business leads and then converting them.

Each month Richard brings to our group in Farnborough industry knowledge and specialists to teach digital marketing lead generation techniques.

This month techniques to build professional networks and generate leads from LinkedIn was on the agenda.

If you are interested in visiting the Lead Gen Academy, then drop me an email and I will invite you along as my guest to see what it can do for your business.
