I love Edenvale’s Local Business Networking Events were born out of a passion for local business and are presented every 4 – 6 weeks.
The prime purpose of these events is to support local business and generate qualified business leads for one another. To achieve this, our regular attendees develop both trust in and understanding of each other’s businesses.
The events are hosted at a different local business each time, affording an opportunity for the host company to showcase their organisation. Past events have been hosted by the Corporate Conference Centre, Slimtones Beauty, Auto Pedigree in van Riebeek Ave, Diamond Estates and Mamba Strike Force.
Keeping it local is a cycle that needs all of the parts to work together for success.
Networking is a proactive approach to meeting people in order to learn how you can help them. It is not about selling your stuff and it’s not about exchanging business cards, it’s all about being genuine and authentic, building trust and relationships, and learning from and helping people through the products and services you offer.
Relationships don’t happen overnight, you cannot expect to attend one event and reap the rewards. Relationships take time and effort.
I’m happy to say that those who have been regularly attending our networking events over the last year, have built sound relationships and are beginning to see the value of connecting with other local businesses.
There is no charge for these events, but we try to link each event to a local charity and ask for a small contribution, not monetary, to their “wish list”. Charities we have supported in the past include Edenvale Care Centre Hospice, Edenvale SPCA, Christmas gifts for the elderly at our Christmas Event last year, Compass Homes and the Mamba Christmas Drive.
