Swindon Business Village Latest News
If you’re unsure how to communicate with clients, when to communicate with clients and how often to communicate with them, then Steve Manning – who runs Hampshire-based Activate Marketing – has some of the answers.
Steve gave a lively and informative presentation to Business Village, focusing on the importance of client communications.
I’ve attended many Business Village Networking events in Swindon the past 8 years. I’ve tried other networking events, but Business Village has worked best for me.
For someone who essentially works alone from a home office it’s a great opportunity once a week to get out and meet other local business people ‘face to face’, and to find out what’s happening in the local area.
At a cost of just £10 (which includes breakfast, and which is only payable for the weeks when I attend) this is a cost-effective marketing tool as well. For anyone who thinks they can do all of their business networking online – think again! Online networking might be a reasonable way to connect with large numbers of people, but face to face is a better way to develop trust and build lasting business relationships.
Business Village members make these meetings fun and enjoyable, without losing sight of the more serious business nature. A varied events schedule that mixes round table networking with referrals sessions and presentations ensures that there is always something of interest and useful going on.
Here are 10 reasons why I think you should try it too, or come back and give us another go if you haven’t been for a while.
