How To Find The Right Networking Event in Peterborough For You!

When you are starting out in the networking world it is sometimes not unusual to feel let down or disappointed when you leave an event. That is because there are so many different networking events in Peterborough. They all work in different ways, and they all work for different audiences.

You need to take the time to ensure that you attend the right networking event. While some may be free, or others a small fee to cover the meal, for example, it is your time that you are giving too. Your time is priceless so you need to make sure you find the right networking event in Peterborough, for you.

We have put together the following things to think about, which will help you choose the right networking event in Peterborough;

What Are Your Goals?

Take the time to brainstorm what you want to get from the networking event and who you want to meet. If you want to meet for a coffee and just chat to like-minded people then free networking events in Peterborough might work really well for you. However, if you are looking for an event where you stand up and pitch and spend quality time networking with business owners then a paid networking event may be more suitable for you.

One Group or More?

Every networking event in Peterborough will have its own mission and vibe. It is important that you find a networking group with the same mission and vibe as you. There is no reason you can’t attend more than one group. For example, some of our members attend our breakfast and lunchtime networking events in Peterborough. Others attend an evening networking event too. This is because, as we have said before, each networking event in Peterborough is different. It is run in its own way with a different goal, audience and vibe.

Step outside Your Industry

Some industries have brilliant events for people within the industry, but there needn’t be the only networking events that you attend. While hanging out with people in your own industry can help you stay on top of the latest news and be known in the industry, you may find that your potential clients are at other networking events, which are not industry specific.

Who Is Your Target Audience

Before networking events take your time to research the group. You may be able to view a list of members that attend the event. Perhaps you can find photos online of the last event and the people in the room. Now think about if these people are your target audience. Are they people you want to meet and people you could do business with?

 

Of course there is no reason you can’t try out a few networking events in Peterborough to see which one fits you and your business best. If you’d like to try out Connect Business Networking for lunchtime or breakfast networking event in Peterborough then book here.

We look forward to welcoming you soon.
