Networking is not a dirty word
The Golf Business Forum was initially conceived as a time and place for the golf industry to make connections and share ideas, and we received fantastic feedback from 2016 delegates which confirmed that we succeeded in our goal. For our delegates and sponsors, we want to, once again, make sure that you get the most out of the Forum in 2018 and networking is one of the best ways to achieve that.
Before you decide that networking sounds as appealing as sniffing dirty socks, just remember that networking is, at its core, simply talking and listening. A conversation. Something you would do anyway. What turns these standard conversations amongst colleagues into networking is simply focussing on active listening and being prepared. Easy right? Pretty much, but take a look at this article from entrepreneur.com which gives you more guidance on networking and other tips and tricks on how to get the most out of conferences like the Golf Business Forum.
Remember, the event app also has fantastic features which enable you to connect with other delegates, especially the ‘Messenger’ function which you can use after you log in.
So, be prepared to make connections with your industry at the Golf Business Forum next week. We assure you you’ll come away armed with ideas and inspiration from both the experts on the stage and the colleagues you chat with over coffee and cake.
See you there!
