Networking for Leaders

The Oxford Hotel


We are inviting you to a night of delicious dinner, insightful discussions, and networking with entrepreneurs and leaders. * Join us at 6pm for a 6.30pm start. Did you know that 87% of business sits in your network of connections untapped? 🤯😨We are all busy, many of us feel isolated. If we are business owners or organisation leaders, it is easy to feel all alone, that you are the only one with challenges or problems that feel insurmountable at times. 💝Humans naturally want to contribute, connect, & collaborate. We have just forgotten how to start these conversations. A strategic network should both support & challenge you to be more. It helps you gain influence, broaden expertise, learn new skills, and find purpose and balance. The new way to Network is to know how to Network the Networks! Know who you have access to and what help is truly available to you. Seeing who you have at your fingertips is the easiest way to overcome common challenges, solve problems efficiently, generate leads, gain more referrals, and grow your business or organisation. Start fast! 🏆🥇It takes very little time to move from an Accidental Network to Strategic Network, however, the results are enormous!🤑🤑 It starts with: ✅ Defining - Who you have in your network ✅ Clarifying - Which of the 3 groups of connection do they fit into ✅ Magnify - Asking the right Key question 🏎️This is how you fast track your growth! Now's a perfect timing since it's the New Year!!. ⭐️A year can make a difference for you. Find the network that's Connected, Collaborative and wants to Contribute. I have worked with many of Australia’s leading entrepreneurs, helping them exponentially increase their growth through innovative methods of planning, marketing, and strategic networking. 💡Dan Smith, “Sally is my go-to networking and marketing specialist.
