Networking tips for directors

Many people think of networking as attending an event and “working a room”, but it also takes place every time you meet up with a business associate or contact.

Networking is about establishing and cultivating relationships. Such relationships will be more productive and last longer if you ensure they are mutually advantageous. The goal is to make connections with people who might be able to help you achieve your aims. In order to get the maximum benefit from networking it helps to target events and places where you think you are most likely to meet useful contacts.
