Are you visiting many networking events? Listen to a presentation, swap a few business cards and engage in some smalltalk. It is fun isn’t it? But does it grow your business? Honestly? No!
We have visited a LOT of these networking events, hoping that it would grow our business. But it didn’t because ...
presentations are too often one-way sales pitches
it is not about my business goals & challenges
we hardly ever get past smalltalk
We want to fix this. Instead of discussing your holiday plans or listening to a speaker we want YOU to engage in discussions which are relevant to your business goals and challenges. At YBS, members get a chance to start topics of discussion which are relevant to their business. Members exchange ideas, experiences, tips and referrals to help each other grow.
• If you are a business person located in (or near to) Yokohama and if you are interested in meaningful networking, please visit us at Innovation Pier One The Map, a co-working space, every 3rd Wednesday of the month, from 19-21h, a 5 minutes walk from Exit 3 of Nihon Odori Station on Minato Mirai Line or a 13 minutes walk from Kannai Station on JR Keihin Tohoku- Negishi Line, on the 3rd Floor in Japan Express Building, can be found reaching Jack Cafe on the 1st Floor near Osanbashi between Yamashita Park and Red Brick Warehouse (Aka Renga Souko in Japanese).

この様な状況を変えるために、そして「週末にまたね」とか相手の話を聞いているだけではなく、『この会へ参加者の皆様に』に事業目的と解決すべき問題に則した話し合いをしていただきたいのです。YBS(Yokohama Business Society) のメンバーは、お互いの事業に関連のある話題を分かち合うことができます。メンバーは、お互いに学べるように、アイディアや経験、紹介や助言などを交し合うことができます。
