What are the benefits of networking?

Could it be time for you to get better connected and what are the benefits of networking? Throughout Hertfordshire, Essex and the surrounding areas you will find many fantastic businesses. Professional networking means you are going to meet more people and ultimately expand your network. You might be thinking “is the investment of my time and resources actually going to be worth it?” At HB, we believe that by taking advantage of networking events you can build genuine business relationships, which will have a positive impact on you and your business in the future.

Why should I network?

  • Strengthen existing business connections
  • Build new long-tern business relationships
  • Swap tips
  • Platform to introduce your business/products or services
  • Fresh ideas
  • Gain a different perspective
  • Builds confidence

Where can I network?

There are many opportunities to make new business contacts, swap tips and get advice at networking events in Hoddesdon, Ware and Hertford.

Why Not join Team HB networking?

HB Accountants organise a Quarterly Ladies Business Networking Lunch and our next meeting is on Thursday 30th April from midday – the venue is Paradise Wildlife Park.

HB Accountants Networking Ladies Lunch April 2020

Tickets for a 2 course meal, refreshments at the chance to network with between 40-50 women are £25 and because attendance is at an all-time high, we are, for the first time, offering you the opportunity to take a stand around the room to display your promo, services or products – get in touch if you would be interested in this and Vicki can give you all the details and prices.

As a special offer for the HB networking meeting, Paradise Wildlife Park is offering discounted entry after the event for a £6 donation into the charity pot.  The usual price is £21.50 so why not take advantage and spend the afternoon enjoying their newest attractions World of Dinosaurs, Lion Pride Lands and Land of Tigers
