Networking – 7 February, 2014

Posted by on Feb 7, 2014


We kicked off our first meeting for 2014 with some positive enthusiasm all round. The South African economy is looking quite interesting, and while the recent interest rate hike was a surprise, the petrol price increase was no surprise! With the ongoing e-toll debate and the upcoming elections, we are in for an interesting year indeed. We as Entrepreneurs have the opportunity to make the best of the year as we can, because we can!

With a good balance between ‘first-time’ networkers and ‘seasoned’ networkers, there was much interaction and connection both before the meeting around some delicious refreshments, and afterwards where people scheduled meetings and appointments for further business discussions.

After two rounds of Facilitated Networking, where each person is given the opportunity to share some insights into their business with the others around the table, our guest speaker, John Broome, took us through ‘Six Steps to Personal / Business Success’. In summary, these include:

  • Crystallizing your thinking
  • Writing down goals
  • Having a strong ‘why’ for what you do
  • Developing confidence
  • Taking action and
  • Obtaining feedback.

For more details, contact John directly. You can also Download the Goal planning sheet to assist you.

We were encouraged to continue networking, making contacts, referring others, and importantly to invite others to attend the next Imbizo with us. We meet on the first working Friday of every month.
