It seems that you either love it or hate it, but networking seems to be one of the most effective ways of building a bank of new business contacts and spreading the message of who you are and what you do.
Just the time spent with other progressive business owners and thinkers can be time well spent, as it can leave you with renewed energy for your own business, or can unlock a nugget of useful information that can catapault your business onto a new level.
But its amazing how many businesses we speak to in and around Heanor and Ripley that aren't out there actively networking. We may be sandwiched between two large cities, and between two large business centres, but that doesn't mean that the business commmunity of the Amber Valley isn't worthwhile talking to and becoming a bigger part of.
As well as our own networking evenings, 'An Evening With the Best Of...' and our popular Business Expo's, another great local networking opportunity that we'd encourage everyone to join is the Amber Valley Business Club.
The club is an informal, no pressure group of local businesses who meet once per month to talk and exchange ideas, contacts and information over a buffet breakfast, lunch or dinner. And as its facilitated by Amber Valley Borough Council's Regeneration Unit, its also much more attractively priced than other networking organisations, at just £42 for the year, incuding VAT.
The new year has just started, so joining now means that you will get the benefit of a year's full membership for your money.
