Networking. Who would have thought that one little word could wield so much power?
The thought of networking alone has the capacity to leave small business owners with a sense of impending doom. After all, not everyone is cut out for schmoozing and slick small talk. But under the right circumstances, networking is a vital business growth tool that can accelerate your potential client base and generate real business, virtually overnight.
Landmark Plc got involved in the popular Open House London series of events across the capital last weekend, to open up one of the City’s hidden gems, Holland House, to the public.
The result was nothing short of astounding. The organisers had expected around 250 visitors to attend, but more than 1,500 took the tour around the building over the two days. One visitor said: ‘‘everybody wants to see The Gherkin, but Holland House is the one with the ‘wow’ factor.’’
Look around your workplace and answer this simple question: Where's your least favourite place?
We're willing to bet it's the meeting room.
You can have the world's most beautiful meeting room at your disposal (ahem, we think these meeting rooms are worthy contenders), yet you still can't wait to get out of there. Why? Because many meetings are long, drawn-out and painfully unproductive. Meeting agendas have an ugly habit of expanding merely to fill allocated time slots.
If there's one thing that's guaranteed to make Sunday evening a little easier, it's having a clear plan for Monday morning.
But in honour of work/life balance, Monday planning shouldn't be done on a Sunday. That, in our book, is akin to putting milk in your tea before adding hot water. The trouble is that Friday afternoons aren't necessarily a good time either. Aside from finishing on time for happy hour, Friday afternoons are often crammed with loose ends and last-minute deadlines.
