Networking Training

Networking Skills Training

Networking means many things to many people. At one end of the scale it’s a nerve racking experience that you put yourself through, and for others it’s a fun and exciting opportunity to meet new people.


Where ever you fit within this range, it’s important to make sure that you are getting the most from every networking opportunity, meeting the right people and making the right impression.


Networking Skills Training will help you to build confidence, overcome fears and concerns and provide real world sales skills appropriate to any networking situation.

The training was well pitched across the hierarchy of staff present and it really gave everyone something to think about, whether they considered themselves competent at networking or not. Feedback has been great and I wouldn’t hesitate to use James’ services in the future for other professional skills training.”
