How do I go about building my network?

Building a network is not something you can do in a week or two, it is a commitment that requires effort and structure.

  1. Identify the types of people you wish to connect with

    Prospective clients, other industries that refer work to your expertise,

  2. Find events that these types attend

  3. Be consistent in your attendance

    Building a trusted profile by attending frequently and getting to know people deepening the relationship.

  4. Follow up with your contacts well after the event has finished

  5. Maintain the relationship

    Remembering some relationships you may have for years before you are able to help them or they you – however maintaining the trust over that period of time is crucial.
