Building Relationships for Success

Networking has long been an effective means of making new professional contacts, often leading to new business. Now there’s a new twist: NETWEAVING. The goal is to learn all you can from as many people as possible about their business, their needs, and their challenges. Then, to try to help as many people as you can by putting them in touch with someone you know or sharing insight that can help the other person succeed in business. Networking and Netweaving are both mechanisms to building relationships – a crucial process to being successful.

The Greater Hall Chamber will host its first Small Business NetWeaving event on Tuesday, June 12, 7:45-9:00 a.m. at Lanier Tech’s Manufacturing Development Center.
