UPSKILL: Strategic Networking and the 24/7/1 Technique

Our UPSKILL trainings are great for not for profits, charities and social enterprises in the Social Purpose Sector, as well as consultants and professional service businesses.


Thursday 10 November, 12-1pm AEDT (Sydney time)

This one-hour training session will cover three core areas to help you avoid the Networking Disconnect:

  • Why it's important NOT to make any moves until you have made a plan
  • How to get 'Get yourself off your mind', which is a known cause of ineffective networking
  • Learn the principles around "Connect, don’t disconnect", and how to avoid turning off the conversation

The 24/7/1 technique is a powerful routine to develop deeper relationships and make your networking efforts more meaningful and successful. 

Scroll down to the bottom of this page to learn more about your trainers, and why they are ideally placed to run this session.

To support the workshop and your planning, you will receive:

  • Presentation materials,

This training is ideally for those who:

  • Want to increase their 'Return on Effort' with their chosen networks,
  • Don't like networking, but know that it's a key part of being a successful business owner,
  • Didn't realise there was a formula and science that can be applied to networking, to assess the ROE of your efforts

Ideal for ALL stages of business, with a specific focus on Beginners and Intermediate
