Typically, events present an ocean of opportunity that you need to dive head-first into and make the most of, creating new relationships along the way. While daunting, business networking is essential for any professional looking to move forward in their career - you never know where people are going to end up, so it's always a good idea to spend time meeting new people and developing positive relationships.

Whether you're a networking novice or feel you've reached your peak and need new techniques for making the most of these opportunities, our Business Networking training can help. As well providing you with the techniques needed to make a great impression from the get-go, our networking skills training will teach you confidence-boosting tips to benefit other areas of your life, too.

Business Networking - What You Will Learn

Our networking course will begin with a short physical warm-up followed by an ice-breaker – once your nerves have fizzled away, you can start learning and growing both personally and professionally.

During our networking workshop, working with business experts, you will learn:

  • How to overcome nerves before and during networking opportunities
  • Techniques for refining your vocal and physical communication
  • How to hold an engaging conversation and move conversation forward
  • Specialised industry-relevant networking techniques tailored to you

Our networking training is not just about discussing techniques in theory but, as with all of City Academy's communication skills training , it's about putting what you've learnt into practice. During our workshop, you will try different techniques through various practical exercises, including role play and conversation cards that encourage discussion.

As you will not know everyone in the group, it will simulate a real-life networking scenario, however, afterwards, you will be able to evaluate and adapt your technique until you find an approach that is both comfortable and effective to ensure networking success.

There are numerous ways to network, and our workshop is about finding the best method for you.

During our workshop, you will learn how to instigate conversation, move conversations forward, and how to deal with off-putting conversational experiences such as interruptions, while identifying character types and tailoring your technique to different individuals.

You will also learn how to leave a conversation, allowing you to move on to the next conversation and get the most out of an event. No matter what industry you’re working in, it’s essential you know how to expand your network.
