Presentations with interest

Members at CBC get an opportunity to ‘showcase’ their businesses to other members on a regular basis.

Making presentations like this provide a terrific  oportunity for members to practice their presentation skills on a positive audience  – which can pay real dividends when they come to present to their existing or potential clients.

For members that make up the audience  these presentations provide a better understanding of the business being presented  so that they can be more effective in seeking out referrals for that business.

Presentations with interest are an important part of CBC activity. Well worth a visit!

Come and Join Us

Chiltern Business Connections meets every Tuesday morning at 7.15am at Wycombe Heights, Loudwater. It gives members an opportunity to refer leads to one and other, share business knowledge and expertise, expand their networks and gain new and repeat business through trust and familiarity.

Our businesses have seen measurable success through their membership and all for the price of a full English breakfast once a week, which can’t be bad! You can view the schedule for our Tuesday morning meetings.Networking Bill

There are also excellent online benefits for being a member of the breakfast club with a FREE business listing as well as posts specifically tailored to your business presentations. For new and established businesses this will contribute towards a prominent position on a variety of search engines, giving your business valuable exposure.

If you would like to visit CBC as a guest, please contact us here. Developing relationships with other businesses takes time; meeting them just once does not automatically inspire trust. The ideal scenario would be to meet regularly in an informal, yet professional forum, which allows businesses to get to know each other and discuss issues without pressure. Regular personal contact provides higher quality relationships, which are mutually beneficial and naturally lead to companies trading with each other. All businesses should make business networking an integral part of their business marketing strategy and at CBC there is a wealth of opportunity for business to business networking.

Many of us are aware of the power of networking and a number of breakfast clubs exist to facilitate this approach. However, some of these organisations are stressful, unfriendly and ultimately create profits for those who set them up and they may not even be members of the group. Chiltern Business Connections really is different!

Thought provoking – business building

On Tuesday 9th Martin Shimmen made a presentation to our group focussing on ways to generate new business.

We explored the many ways in which business leads can be obtained and then converted into sales.

We always get good participation at CBC and with a moderator as good as Martin some really good ideas tend to emerge.

CBC is a group that’s all about helping members to develop their respective businesses. It recognises individuality and avoids the strict ‘one size fits all’ approach of so many networking groups.

Well worth a visit!

Reasons to Join Our CBC Networking Group High Wycombe Bucks

Hi I’m Genovieve Feasey Local Clinical Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist, here are reasons to Join Our CBC Networking Group. The good things about CBC networking, is that people are generally there for a similar reason.

Chiltern Business Connections High Wycombe.

Chiltern Business Connections High WycombeCBC Phillip and GenovieveOn the afternoon/ evening of the 28th May 2015 a large group of us attend a business-social trip addressing theory of  ‘Business Models’ we attend an exhibition by the Famous and Prestigious Company Patek Philippe, Geneva’s oldest independent family-owned watch manufacturer .  Networking is perhaps one of the most misinterpreted and underrated skills. Some people think it’s just about intermingling and some people consider it’s about getting a chance to get in front of someone they can sell to. We at CBC take Business and Pleasure seriously it’s ‘All about Balance in Life’. Key advice from Genovieve Feasey: “ when I do my Networking and Socialising primarily I remember it’s not about doing business… forget about trying to influence… in its place I discover ways to be of value, discover ways to be a friend and demonstrate how I can be of use to my group. So be ‘in it’ for the right reasons; just ensure these few things are your intention and you will be ahead of the opposition” …so with this in mind, check out below my list of advantages of Networking with CBC: You make new contacts – both one-on-one and as a team You may learn new things very quickly and without research You may find support to take your projects forward You can be empowered and re-energised You get to meet a group of likeminded individuals It will help you focus on what you are looking to achieve You may find Collaborators or Partners – both financially and emotionally for what you are looking to achieve! Done the correct way networking is probably the most central and lucrative skill you can learn. And it doesn’t matter if you do it for the purpose of doing business, getting a job, improve your social / presentation skills, confidence in people skills. It’s simply one of the most effective ways to get what you want.  Why?  Because people like to buy from and do business with people they like, know and trust. Today your networking is more important than ever and the bigger your network grows the more your NET WORTH will grow.
