Learn how to get the best out of live networking events, with less anxiety and more tangible results.
Why should you choose Precision Networking
This course will improve your understanding of strategic and sustainable business networking. It will give you the tools to network better, the opportunity to construct and test the most effective networking pitch, and the skills to use networking events to your advantage.
Those working in the technical professions and innovation often find it frustrating to communicate the value of their products and services to the non-technical business world. It is difficult to grow your business by networking with people who don’t understand what you offer.
Communicating the value of your offering precisely to someone with an entirely different mindset, in a very short time, surrounded by many distractions, often looks too complicated. But is just a skill, like any other, perfectly accessible, and not restricted by your personality type. This course will help you tap into the wealth of useful contacts to grow your company and progress your career.
The best way to network is to have a clear and simple structure that doesn’t break under stress and isn’t affected by the unpredictability of live events. The Five Simple Steps method, tried and tested in the demanding conditions of the City of London over six years, allows you to make genuine, personal contacts without wasting valuable time and getting tangled in the networking process.
Who should attend this course?
Our workshop is aimed at those who should network more but avoid it because it wastes too much time and hardly leads anywhere. The course is based on the critically acclaimed book “Introverts Make Better Networkers – How Anyone Can Succeed” and it is beneficial to both introverts and extroverts.
Who is the course leader?
Beatrice Freeman is a business networking strategist. She developed her own networking method having had to network daily for an innovative software company in the City of London. An introvert, but also former performing arts professional, Beatrice has honed to perfection a simple method that allows to attend networking events every day, get precise results, avoid frustration and make valuable contacts.
The course is based on extensive personal experience and not on second-hand knowledge. It has excellent LinkedIn and Amazon reviews. We’ll address the practical problems you face in live events. We’ll work in a small group where you will get to build your perfect pitch, try it out, make it more precise, see how it registers and adjust it to maximum impact. You will follow a precise process that leads to the best results. We’ll address specific issues that you have encountered in previous situations and turn a dooming failure into a smooth operation. We’ll examine how to grow your network in the best, time-efficient and cost-effective way, and assess which direction it should take.
Specifically prepared to work well with the technical mindset, the course will cover the following:
- Why business networking rarely works well
- Common misconceptions
- Leave nothing to chance: The Five Simple Steps method
- Your perfect networking pitch
- How to raise your rate of success when following up
- What makes the other person engage and want to give you their best contacts
- Negotiating the complexities of live situations

“Precision Networking is an approach I wish I’d learnt 25 years ago. The course delivers must-have, rather than nice-to-have, skills that will ensure anyone can maximise the opportunities networking provides, whilst also helping to stop wasting time. Beatrice was an excellent and engaging teacher who provided real insight and went well over and above my expectations to ensure I understood and could practically apply her techniques. A very rewarding and refreshingly useful course.”
