What happens at a Business Network South Herts Zoom Event?

  • 11.00 am - Log on to Zoom and after a quick chat you'll be put in a breakout room with a few other people to network before the seminar.
  • 11.10am - Back in the main event room again, I welcome everyone, remind members and visitors of the ethos of BNSH and offer some networking tips.
  • 11.20 am - It's time for the seminar and Q&A session. This is educational, not a sales pitch; a great opportunity to learn from other members and for presenters to showcase their knowledge and expertise.
  • 11.50 am - Networking continues at virtual 'tables' of 6 or 7 people in breakout rooms. These table plans are prepared and shared in advance, and I ensure that you'll be placed strategically.

    Your breakout room host will facilitate this part of the event and keep things running smoothly. Everyone in the room will be invited in turn to take 2 or 3 minutes to talk about their business and the opportunities and contacts they're looking for. It's wise to think about what you'd like to say in advance.

    BNSH room hosts ensure that your breakout room networking time is effectively managed, so everyone gets a chance to speak.

    There's always time at the end of this session for a more general conversation.

    According to members and visitors this is where the networking magic happens!
  • 12.40 pm - Announcements, information on the next seminar.
  • 12.45 pm - The event ends promptly so you can get on with your day.

    We recommend that members and visitors arrange 1:1s to get to know each other better outside the group.

  • February: Wednesday 10th, Online

    Time - 11.00am

    Presenter - Yiannis Yianni - ActionCoach

    Topic - Resilience: Why it Matters, How to Get it, How to Grow it

    CONTENT

    Resilience is a quality we usually give little thought to and often misunderstand its significance to us. We tend to believe that we were born with it or have just developed it over time, but studies show that most people over-estimate their own level of resilience; and that can be dangerous.

    However, we can actively develop and enhance our powers of Resilience. 'Tomorrow's Resilients' is a term that is already being used to describe those businesses that will thrive in 2021, indicating that it is a critical quality that can make the difference between merely surviving and actively thriving in the year ahead.

    In this seminar we'll examine: 

    • What is Resilience and why it matters?
    • How you can become aware of your current levels of Resilience and expose areas of 'risk'
    • The 3 steps that you can use to grow and develop your powers of Resilience

    • March: Wednesday 10th, Online

      Time - 11.00am

      Presenter - Olivier Carion - The Sales Masters Guild + Dexter Moscow - Audience Dynamic

      Topic - The Mental Fitness Pathway to Peak Performance

      CONTENT

      THE ONLY THING WE HAVE CONTROL OVER IS HOW WE REACT TO ANY GIVEN SITUATION.

      When you approach a problematic business or personal situation, what are the voices you hear in your head?

      Are they unhelpful 'inner critics' sitting like a 'devilish parrot' on your shoulder chirping negativity into your ear causing you stress, anxiety and procrastination?


      Are they continually limiting your business activity and focus as they constantly nag at you for not being good enough?


      Telling you you're not worthy, will make a fool of yourself or fail like you have done before and sabotaging your success.

      If so, let us offer you a better, more positive perspective.

      To enable you to see whatever problems you face as a 'gift', an 'opportunity to learn' and a 'way to enhance' your personal and financial wellbeing.

      In this interactive discussion, we will explore 3 key elements to ensure you achieve Peak Performance for your business and personal goals in 2021

      • How to turn the volume down on your debilitating self-talk.
      • How, as with physical fitness, you can strengthen your mental fitness.
      • How to change your perspective on the problems and negative situations that frustrate your growth.

      What members and guests say

      "If you want to grow your network, boost your business and meet interesting and friendly people, come to the next South Herts Business Network meeting. Sharon is calm, organised, strategically minded + empathetic; and South Herts is a very well run group which benefits greatly from Sharon's skills, experience and professionalism. "

      "Finding a networking organisation that meets all the objectives can be difficult. Many are glorified excuses for a social get together, or they are frequented by people who are not decision makers in their organisation. Running a successful networking group is no easy task, it takes meticulous planning, fabulous organisation skills, the patience of a saint and a leader/organiser with a great personality and the capacity to bring the right people together. I am happy to say that Sharon manages to accomplish all of these things, rarely have I visited such a well-run, useful, entertaining and beneficial networking group as Business Network South Herts. I was made to feel welcome, was impressed at how efficiently the meeting was conducted and it was clear that attention to detail comes naturally to Sharon. If you want to network with business owners/decision makers, meet interesting people, and have the opportunity to promote your business then Business Network South Herts is for you."
