One of the challenges you face, is that people join your to network with fellow members. But most people dislike networking or don’t know how to do it. I don’t wish to scare you but something like 80% of people fall into this category.
This can result in members feeling that your events don’t work for them, a drop in attendances at your events and people not renewing their membership.
How we can help:
We can help you turn this trend around by teaching your members how to network effectively, professionally and most importantly – to achieve the results they joined you for in the first place.
Here are just a couple of examples of things we could do:
- Offer new members a session on how to network and get the best from your events
- Offer members a session on how to ‘work the room’
- Offer members a networking clinic
These sessions could be on issues such as:
- Networking for new business (member to member)
- Networking for careers (members within their own organisations)
- Networking for knowledge (members to speakers / members)
- Networking at conferences
Our sessions are focused on outcomes, they are practical and great fun. Over the last 15 years we have worked with hundreds of membership groups - and chaired a few groups as well! So we know the challenges you face and how to create the right environment for members to relax and have a great event.
