  • August: Wednesday 14th, Theobalds Estate

    Time - 10.00 am Registration and Refreshments for a 10.30 am Start

    Presenter - Amit Wason - CBiz

    Topic - Marketing is a marathon not a sprint

    Marketing is often seen as a "thing to do"  when we have time and are not busy - as something that can be done later or outsourced. Often, we expect to be able to turn it on and see leads increase. While this may work for some types of businesses, for many - especially more complex and service type ones - that just isn't the case.

    In this seminar Amit will cover how over the years he has seen the need for marketing grow and the way to market change dramatically. Having tried several different approaches to marketing - and seeing what worked and (more often) what did not - he has seen that content marketing is a powerful way to get your business known and to get leads in. However, content marketing is more of a marathon than a sprint and you need to be in it for the long haul.

    The objectives of the seminar are to:

    • Understand why content is king
    • Realise the ownership & drive needed
    • Formulate an idea of who can do the marketing
    • How to get started
    • Putting time in your diaries for this
    • Making it part of your working week (every week)

  • September: Wednesday 25th, Holiday Inn, London Elstree

    Time - 10.00 am Registration and Refreshments for a 10.30 am Start

    Presenter - Dexter Moscow - Audience Dynamics

    Topic - The 9 Steps to Sales P.O.T.E.N.T.I.A.L

    CONTENT

    The 9 Steps to sales P.O.T.E.N.T.I.A.L. is a step by step process that enables you to achieve success in your business meetings and ensure that you have a formal, effective sales process, otherwise you will be subject to your prospects process. Which is:      

    • How can you help me?  
    • What are your ideas to solve my problems?
    • How much is it going to cost?
    • Send me your proposal.

    What happens next? You send them your proposal and they do one of three things:

    • Send it to their existing supplier,
    • Decide to do it themselves.
    • Or even worse, use your proposal as a template to send to your competition.

    The 9 Steps to sales POTENTIAL will help you keep on track, know where you are in the conversation and allows you to keep control, it give all parties a clear understanding of what happens next and either do the deal, arrange a further meeting, or be prepared to walk away. 

    This structured approach will enable you to create a positive, engaging and professional impression from the moment you enter the room to when you leave it.

    The session will include active participation from the delegates and in so doing they will leave with a formal business winning sales process.

"Joining the Business Network South Herts has been a revelation to me as my previous experiences of other Networking Groups was a real turn off. The Business Network format has a working lunch feel to it that allows even the least experienced networker to shine . . . and enjoy"
