Networking in South Oxfordshire & Vale of the White Horse
In this session we’ll be joined by Mark Masters of You are the media who will be talking to us about communication.
Exercising the honesty muscle will help you in the long run. Creating and sharing have to be for the right reasons.
You don’t need to create a false facade to impress.
This isn’t about creating bland content or work to just fit in and be safe, but stepping up so others can see the real you, with a little homely acknowledgment looking at you from the sidelines.
It’s good to have a solid grounding for you and your work. Here is your checklist for the mum test:
When you take a step back, can you safely say that what you are presenting is a true
representation of you? Are you trying too hard to look and sound important?
Whether an outrageous admittance or calling someone else out, is this going to put you in a delicate place after you have aired?
The experiences you encounter help you shape ideas, it has meaning to you and a way to share with others to help them. This is different from telling others that your experiences have shaped you into a renowned professional
When your work is to keep an infinite number of people happy, is your work slipping away from what you represent and the values you have?
The mum test is a way for you to look others in the eye and say, ‘this is me’. Even better it’s what your mum knows is a true reflection of you and delivered in a way that is clear and simple, for them to understand.
Being trustworthy is what others decide. When you become worthy of their trust, it becomes easier for them to buy in, form relationships and also tell others.
Oi & Ni… are delighted to be partnering with South & Vale Business Support to bring you our first networking group with a regional theme, we present Networking in… South Oxfordshire & Vale of the White Horse. If you work in, work with, or have an interest in networking in South Oxfordshire & The Vale of the White Horse this is the event for you.
What works for one person can sometimes be a complete turn off for another. We looked around at all the other groups, took the best bits; and did it our way.
We believe that the best networking groups are diverse in age, sex, race and religion. We also believe that people buy from people; we don’t exclude or have caps / exclusivity within a sector. If you want to win business in our rooms; you’ll win it because of who you are, what you do, and how you do it; rather than you being the only option. In our groups, you’ll have ample opportunity to tell your story, listen to everyone else’s, and then have the time to make all the connections you want.
JOIN US ONLINE ON THE 1ST AND 3RD WEDNESDAY OF THE MONTH AT 9:30AM-11:00AM
Not all business networking was created equal and we think you’ll find our events quite special
