>>> AUTHENTIC NETWORKERS CODE OF HONOUR <<<

I will have a genuine conversation with someone before I pitch my business.

I will help other business owners make connections, if I can.

I will let others know who my ideal client is, so that they can help with connections.

I will refer people in my own network to my new contacts, when appropriate.

I will never disparage another member, or another business/industry, for my own gain (because I never know who else might be in the room!). I understand that if I do this, I may be removed from the group.

I will ask questions, learn more about others, and have fun!

Real business isn’t done in board meetings; it’s done over a half-eaten plate of buffalo wings at the sports bar, or during the intermission of a Broadway show. It’s done through an enthusiastic greeting, with an unexpected recommendation, or by offering up your cab when it’s raining. It happens in the small personal interactions that allow us to prove to each other who we are and what we believe in.
