MAWB May Speed Networking
Join us on Tuesday, May 17th (12:00 PM – 1:30 PM) for our online MAWB May Speed Networking event. Speed networking is a meeting format designed to accelerate business connections.
Networking is key for any business’s growth. In order to thrive, your business needs clients and customers, and networking is a great way to increase your profile, get your name known, and gain top-of-mind recognition.
Some statistics to bear in mind:
- You need an average of 8 contacts with a customer to make a sale. A contact includes meeting in person at an event or 1-on-1, a phone call, email, or messaging.
- Consumers referred by a friend are 4x more likely to buy/convert! This means, not only are the people you meet networking potential sources of business, but their networks are as well.
- Referral leads have a 30% higher conversion rate.
MAWB Speed Networking events are designed to help you increase the “know, like, trust” factor not meant as a sales pitch.
How it Works
During our 90 minute session, you will be randomly assigned to a Zoom break-out room with one other businesswoman. The meeting will last between 10-12 minutes. You will get the opportunity to meet with 4-6 other businesswoman during the event. You will be sent the contact information for the list of participants after the event.
Tips for Speed Networking
- Focus on building relationships, not collecting contacts or leads.
- Listen, don’t pitch.
- Look/listen for ways to be of service.
- Take notes to help you keep track.
- Prepare an ask.
- Follow up and follow through.
- HAVE FUN! BE YOU!
We hope you will join us!
