D2N2 Growth Hub: Developing Your Networking Skills and Elevator Pitch

29 January, 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

In this interactive session you will discover how to chat and network with confidence and skill – even with strangers.

Who is it for?

Have you ever got stuck in a boring conversation? Or hung back on introducing yourself to strangers only to find you have an awkward silence shortly after meeting someone? Or not known what to say, how to relate or how to escape?

Have you ever been asked to do a 60 second sales pitch about you and your business and felt lost for words?  Or, even worse, rambled on and not really got your point across?  If so, then this FREE workshop is just for you.

This Workshop is ideal for someone who:

  • Wants to improve their networking skills and have a killer elevator pitch
  • Goes networking but feels awkward and shy
  • Holds back from introducing themselves to people
  • Gets stuck with people and doesn’t know how to escape
  • Has to represent their firm or organisation at networking and social events
  • Attends conferences, seminars or other interactive forums

What’s on offer?

In today’s fast paced and competitive marketplace, you need to get your message across quickly and in a way that makes you memorable – for all the right reasons.  Furthermore, you want to encourage people to learn more about you and your business.

In this interactive session you will discover how to chat and network with confidence and skill – even with strangers. Introduce yourself confidently, keep the conversation flowing, connect with people and exit with ease.  And then stay in touch after the event and build a strong network of profitable contacts – easily.

This dynamic, practical workshop will teach you how to communicate your elevator pitch with ease and make it memorable for you and the people in the room.

Expert speaker

Lindsey Newman-Wood will be running this session, from Passion Marketing.   Lindsey makes all her workshops engaging, fun and full of hints and tips to take away and use in your business straight away. The event also offers the opportunity to network with the other businesses there.

Further information and registration

As the European Regional Development Fund part-funds this event, we need to evidence that you are a small to medium enterprise (SME). There will be a couple of forms that will need to be completed on the day. One form is to ensure you are a small to medium enterprise. The second is to capture any support you have received over the last 3 years to ensure you haven’t exceeded €200,000. If you have previously completed these forms at a D2N2 Growth Hub event you will not have to complete another set.

While this event is FREE to attend, we only have a limited number of spaces available. So don’t delay, book your place today.   This workshop is hosted by the D2N2 Growth Hub and Oxford Innovation.  It is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
