PR Networking

August 24, 2007

A very interesting article in Times2 this week discussing the merits of networking which made some very big claims. 

  • 75% of US executives land new positions through contacts

  • The Legal profession gains a fifth of its new business through networking

  • The Business Network International has 4700 local groups.

The value of networking is [of course] all old news to graduate PRs who have been to one of our drinks evenings but the article provided the ideal opportunity for a shameless plus of our next event on September 6th. See here for details.

Oh and contrary to the Times article, we believe that networking in the truest sense doesn’t require a time limit per person, you don’t have to make a new business contact and you certainly don’t need to have a stack of business cards to attend. If Bill Clinton has kept notes on everyone he has met since University, well good for him. We just fancy a few drinks after work.

We look forward to meeting you.

(and just to prove we don’t take ourselves too seriously, we thought we’d put a ridiculous picture of us up.)

  1. I’m sure there are photos you could have used which make us look like attractive, polished professionals, rather than fleece-clad types huddling outside pubs in the winter?! Surely?!

    Be grateful, there were other photos I could have chosen that should never see the light of day. This was a ‘hey we’re casual kind of guys’ type photo.
