GO Get Networking in 2019!

GO Get Networking is back in 2019, in a new venue!

GO Get Networking has been very successful this year, and we are delighted to continue running these events next year. The first event will be held in our new venue at the Apex Hotel (in the Lounge as you walk in on the right), on Thursday 28 February from 9:30 to 11:15am.

The format will remain the same, with over one hour of great networking in a relaxed environment, followed by a 15-minute talk at the end of the session, on a subject that is useful to small businesses.

As much as we would love to keep these events free, we have had to introduce a small charge to attend. The reason for this is simply to speed things up, so that everyone can spend their time networking rather than waiting for drinks. Tickets will cost £6.50, which includes tea or coffee and a mini pastry on arrival. We do hope that you understand and will continue to support these events.

Pictures from our last event can be seen here

We can’t wait to see you all next year

GO Get Networking October 2018

Thank you so much to all who made it yesterday.  I returned to so many emails from people who couldn’t make it due to illness, so sorry you missed it and we hope you all feel better soon!

As always, a huge thank you to Framptons for letting use their facilities.

I have posted below some great photos from yesterday for you all to see.  I would also like to thank Lis Mcdermott of Headshot Diva who gave up her time (for free) to help us .  Lis has just had a new book published,  click here to find out more.  Please help to spread the word and support Lis.

I will work on the dates for future events soon and will be in touch!

Thank you all again for your support, and if you know of a small business who needs some support – please just tell them to GO Get Organised!

Networking is absolutely vital to the growth of any business. There are many obvious benefits; it can help you generate new leads, make useful connections, share good practice, build your reputation and much more. But sometimes there are barriers to successful networking – particularly for smaller businesses – such as lack of time, budget and confidence. We understand this and so we’ve launched GO Get Networking, a new initiative aimed at smaller businesses in and around Bath.

What makes GO Get Networking different to other networking groups?

Over the last few years, our own experience has been that networking groups can be expensive and time consuming, often involving costly membership fees and too many meet-ups. We wanted to find a simpler and less formal way of networking, and so we decided to design our own. GO Get Networking is different to other groups because:

  • It’s specifically intended for smaller businesses only.
  • THIS IS A FREE EVENT – Simply buy a coffee at the bar on the way in!
  • Events are held four times a year in a relaxed setting. This allows us to keep it fresh and it frees you from a monthly commitment.
  • We meet at 9.30am and finish at 10.45am, giving us enough time to do some useful networking without eating too much into working hours

Typically, the format is an hour of mingling followed by a 10-minute informal talk given by a group member, or a guest speaker, on a subject that is of interest to others (eg a useful service or helpful app to support your business). This is most definitely not about hard selling but communicating useful information.

The benefits of networking

If you’re not sure what’s in it for you, then consider some of the benefits of networking:

  • It enables you to generate leads and make connections (eg with potential customers, suppliers, partners)
  • It gives you the opportunity to share good practice, useful information, contacts, successes/failures, ideas and resources
  • It helps you stay on top of local business developments and market trends
  • It opens you up to new opportunities (eg joint ventures and promotions)
  • It raises your profile and helps to build your reputation
  • Meeting people face-to-face helps you develop personal connections and build trusting relationships; people are more likely to remember you if they’ve met you
  • Other business owners can give you support and encouragement, which is particularly valuable for smaller businesses

How to network successfully: some top tips

Networking doesn’t come easily to everyone. Many people find the idea of launching themselves into a room full of strangers a daunting prospect, while even the most seasoned networkers might not be approaching it in the best way. But there are lots of strategies to help improve your skills, and with a bit of practice, anyone can become an adept networker. Here are some tips for successful networking:

  • Be prepared– make the most of networking opportunities by thinking beforehand about what you want to get out of them, who you might want to talk to etc. And don’t forget your business cards.
  • Be confident– it’s easier said than done, but hold onto the fact that the more networking you do, the better you’ll get at it.
  • Be professional– even at less formal events, always remember that you’re representing your business.
  • Be yourself– don’t pretend to be someone you’re not; the connections you make should be based on a genuine match of personality, experience, interest etc.
  • Be courteous– remember people’s names (there are various techniques you can learn if you find this difficult), introduce people to each other, be friendly to everyone. Listen as well as talk.
  • Be selective– make sure that you’re asking the right people for advice, and also that any potential opportunities are in line with your own business objectives.
  • Be generous– always keep in mind that the point of networking is to share information, so offer tips and ideas, give feedback, pass on contact details and so on.

GO Get Organised this Christmas!

Go Get Organised this Christmas!

Thank you to all that made it to our Christmas Party on Friday 11th December. It was a great night.

Go Get Organised admin staff gathered all of our virtual assistants, online bookkeepers, virtual social media managers, part time marketing consultants, IT support and virtual PAs to celebrate a very busy year.  Our staff work independently from home, supplying virtual support to many local businesses in Bath and further afield, so it was a great excuse to all get together for a night out.

Go Get Organised this Christmas: Here are just a few snaps as a taster of the evening.
