As recently featured in The Adviser magazine, our CEO, Victoria Coster, explains the importance of networking..
Let’s make 2022 the year for reconnecting.
Victoria Coster, CEO and founder of Credit Fix Solutions shares her tips for networking.
Getting back into networking is a really important part of our business and our industry.
COVID has caused us to be wary of getting out about and we have created the habit of staying at home and conducting business via Zoom.
This may have caused some businesses and advisers to forget how important networking is.
Our success as a company can be directly attributed to getting out there and talking to people.
While I have worked hard to grow my network via LinkedIn, where I currently have in excess of 15,000 connections, there is nothing like being in the same room with someone.
There are a number of different avenues for networking.
I was recently fortunate to attend the FBAA Conference and awards held at Sea World on Friday 11 March.
The conference was the first time I had been to this sort of event since mid-2020.
The opportunity to speak to hundreds of brokers was invaluable.
Putting faces to names in the industry and being able to share what we do is at the core of creating new referral partners.
Talking to other brokers and suppliers gives you an insight into how they operate, is a source of growth and can lead to new job opportunities for you too.
While some people may find attending a large-scale event daunting, this can be elevated by careful preparation.
- Know what you want to achieve out of an event;
- Prior to attending look up the companies that have stands and who the speakers are attending;
- Have a game plan;
- Review where the stands you wish to go to and have your questions pre-prepared;
- Have a 30-second pitch for your business ready to go.
