Richard Willis, Events Manager at NI Chamber said:
“Networking is a great way to market your business in a very informal environment. Whether your aim is to increase your customer base, find new markets or create partnerships – networking is the key to unlocking potential growth.”
Providing advice to those attending the event, Ms McGregor continued; “The key to successful networking is to do your homework about the event and the other business representatives likely to attend. You must approach a networking event determined to get something meaningful out of it such as new contacts, business leads or ideas.”
Des Brown, Director of Marketing & Customer Operations at the event’s headline sponsor, firmus energy said:
“Networking is an important way to build business relationships and contacts, particularly for SMEs and Micro companies which make up 90% of Northern Ireland businesses. firmus energy is delighted to once again sponsor the NI Chamber of Commerce annual networking event giving companies from right across Northern Ireland the opportunity to meet other likeminded individuals and potentially develop new business leads.”
