DAVE CLARKE: Reasons for Networking

We have conducted a survey at NRG business networking events over the last month or so amongst more than 100 first time attendees at networking events. They were given up to 3 choices as their reasons for networking.

It is probably no surprise to you that the biggest group gave 'more business' as a primary reason for networking. Looking for 'new connections' was the next most popular and then 'help with business issues' the third:

84% networking for more business
65% networking for new connections
29% networking for help with business issues

No surprise either that the most successful networkers are the ones who take the time to provide referrals, introductions and help to others first. They give the things that people are networking for and as a result they get the same back.

Good Networking!
Dave Clarke
