1.4 What do we offer?

Our consultative approach combines our extensive knowledge & experience with the most relevant content, whereby, we empower senior executives, all levels of management, front line and support staff with relevant and proven strategies.

Instead of teaching generic networking ‘tips-and-tricks’ or using a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach, we believe that every person learns in his or her own way, and each has unique characteristics. To develop effective networking skills you require a much more personal and planned system. We focus on improving the way people communicate and connect by harnessing their own natural style, and aligning it with strategies that guide them in order to bring out the best in them and every situation they face, be it personal or professional.

At the Business Networking Academy we have developed a proven methodology that ensures networking works. Tested strategies can be applied to each job title and clients from all sectors testify to its success.

Participants are empowered to create and manage viable networks, that support individual and organisational outcomes.

1.5 So what’s the key to our unique methodology?

Our approach combines subject matter expertise, Psychology, Neurology and global business knowledge, which guides the individual participant to develop their own networking strategy. Learning’s are re-enforced by applying them to ‘real life’ networking situations – embedding the skills learnt and bringing about profound and lasting behavioural change. Most importantly, you are more confident and natural in all interactions.

Ongoing interaction with the Business Networking Academy, guarantee’s continuing help and advice as well as access to our comprehensive collection of educational resources available.

Implementing a personalised business networking strategy results in more confident and proficient networkers, who are attuned to the business opportunities that effective networking provides.
