Plenty of interest in networking tips

Networking tips proved a popular subject when the Women in Business Regional Network held its latest lunch at the Smiling Samoyed Brewery in Myponga.

Almost 30 women from across the Fleurieu, Southern Suburbs and even Adelaide metropolitan area gathered to hear Nan Berrett of Word Solutions in the Clare Valley provide advice on how she had built her successful business purely through networking.

As well as encouraging the women to work on an elevator pitch, and to followup promptly with people they’d met, Nan also provided tips on how to network amid the challenges of the pandemic and interacting online rather than in person.

Nan warned about the risks of having all your networking and contacts via social media, leaving your business at risk if networks went down or changed policies.  An email list which was backed up regularly, was essential for any business.

This was the last McLaren Vale/Southern Suburbs chapter function for 2021 and planning is underway for events in 2022.  Details will be announced over the next few weeks.
