West Yorkshire Netwalk – Norland
Do you hate networking in a room full of people eager to thrust their business card at you and sell you their product?
Frankly I find I have better conversations with people when I’m outdoors. I take time to genuinely find out about them, their family, their latest holiday, why they work in their industry. Crucially not to sell to one another but actively listen.
Netwalks was born out of a desire to meet other business professionals without having to do a hard sell to a room full of people, one by one.
Netwalks also provides an opportunity to get away from the office and get exercise, fresh air and relax. Time away from the computer screen can only ever be a good thing. As well as being good for your physical and mental health it’s also where you find time to think creatively and have those moments of inspiration.
No-one remembers the 60 second pitch over a pint but you do remember laughing in the fresh air with someone.
