After four years of running my business delivering Growing Talent and Mental Health/Wellbeing programmes, I felt the time was right to increase my business awareness, network with like-minded organisations and ultimately grow Growing Talent to get even more people into work from diverse backgrounds.
Quite a big membership fee for a ‘one man band’ organisation but the events and knowledge LCC showcase they deliver on their website should make this cost-effective.
I guess you only get out what you put in!
My first networking event is on 6 June 2018 so not long to wait to see if the proof is in the pudding or not!
If there are any fellow members out there – I’d appreciate your top tips!
Update – 8.6.18 – for the first half hour I wondered what I was doing there! There was no staff to direct, no kind of instruction manual – although I now understand there is an introduction session for new members which kicks in a couple of weeks joining! So we were all in a large room with team/coffee etc and left to our own devices with colour coded badges – although not everyone had been given the key to the colour coding. Equally, I was wrongly coded as a PR company! How many others were wrongly coded as well? A couple of people I spoke with told me they were not renewing, others said they had grown strong client relationships. I guess more than one event is needed to form a true opinion!
