Businesswomen learn about connections

The importance of making quality connections in our business and personal lives was the focus for the latest Women in Business Regional Network dinner at Strathalbyn on Monday, November 4.

Network founder Carolyn Jeffrey said that having the right contacts and forging quality relationships with others could make the difference between success or failure for businesses.

“With such a migration towards doing business and even conducting our social lives online, forging quality relationships has never been more important,” she said.

“The success of the network is a demonstration of how women in business see real value in being about to make connections with other women in business to learn, gain support, market their business or forge collaboration opportunities.

“Quality connections are so much more than simply swapping business cards, they are about creating two-way relationships where each party gains from the other in a mutual way.”

The presentation challenged those present to think about who they needed to collaborate with and to set an action plan to make it happen.

“There was certainly a lot of quality collaboration and plenty of laughter and sharing,” Carolyn said.

This was the final network dinner in Strathalbyn for 2019, but the network will be returning with more functions next year.
