Hi There!

Here at Liverpool Chamber we are all about the networking. One of the major benefits our members enjoy is the chance to expand their contacts and grow their business through our busy and varied programme of networking events.

Like any other activity, with networking you get more out if you put more in. There are always tips you can take on board to reap greater rewards.

Over on the Dumb Little Man blog, they’ve posted a ginormous list of 25 tips to help your networking.

They include:

  • Start before your need it
  • Learn about people’s goals
  • Connect people you do know
  • Give more than you expect to receive
  • Be genuinely interested
  • Always follow up
  • Know people in different worlds
  • Learn to listen

Each tip (and the many others) is covered in greater detail, so it’s worth checking out. You can read the whole list here.

And we look forward to seeing you put these tips into practice at our next event!

Liverpool CreativeCoffee Club Meetup V2.0 March 7, 2008

Sugar, anyone?Yesterday (Thursday) Chamber staff attended the second meeting of Liverpool’s very own CreativeCoffee Club chapter. The meeting took place in the lovely Parr Street Studios.

Regular readers (we must have some) will know that the CreativeCoffee Club is an informal networking group that meets up with the aim of fostering links, ideas and creative working methods within all areas of our working lives.

This week’s event was attended by people from business, technology, academic and community-focused backgrounds. Coffee was drunk, chats were had and new connections made. There’s no set agenda to these meetings, so it’s a relaxed and refreshing way to meet new people. By the end of the session, everyone went away with something positive, whether this was new ideas on how to solve a particular problem, a commitment to work together in the future or just an expanded and enriched contact list.

It looks like we’ll try and make these meetings regular events now, probably the last Thursday in the month. We recommend anyone who wants to try a different kind of networking and idea-sharing should come along. It’s not just for the ‘creative’ industries – that’s part of the point: we can all work in different ways, no matter what we do.

Find out more about CreativeCoffee Clubs at their Facebook page or on their website.

Creative Coffee logoThe second meeting of Liverpool’s very own CreativeCoffee Club is taking place on Thursday March 6 at Parr  Street Studios.

You may remember we raved about this event after the inaugural meeting late last year. CreativeCoffee Club is an informal and chatty event, part of a wider, global network of meetings. Its aims are to introduce creative ways of working and thinking and to provide a place for business people, academics, teachers, public sector workers and managers to network, exchange ideas and discuss how to foster creativity and innovation.

If you’d like to be involved, meet people from outside your own particular industry and have a relaxed chat that could take your work in a whole new direction, just come along. The event is free, there’s no need to book and all are welcome.

If you’re into that whole Facebook thing, you can register your interest on the event’s page, or find out more about the Creative Coffee Club in general here. But hey, don’t worry if Facebook isn’t your scene. Just come along anyway.
