Since being self-employed I have seen first-hand how important it is to be a part of a community with like-minded businesses.
So by being involved with networking groups I have seen that businesses flourish by meeting with like-minded business owners and forging alliances; thus the business is generated and long term relationships are made.
Ultimately businesses generate more business by getting HOT referrals from one another and your business gets more exposure.
By attending these meetings you get specialist advice from specialists in their respective field via speaker slots and learn from one another.
I get a big kick out of seeing Businesses grow and relationships made.
