On Thursday May 26th 2022, women in business in Clare had an opportunity to network, while sharing and learning valuable networking tips.
Topic: Business Networking as a Valuable Tool to Grow your Business
With so much choice for business networking opportunities from training programmes, workshops, dinners, awards and general networking events, it can be a challenge to identify which one will work best for you. For some, networking comes naturally, while for others this is a skill we learn to develop. There is one common denominator across all networking opportunities and styles which is certain – networking is a very valuable tool to grow business, make relevant connections and partnerships and drive sales.
