On Tuesday, 13th October, the Spanish Chamber of Commerce in Great Britain organised a special networking event in collaboration with Avocets Consulting, a consultancy company that specialises in corporate communication training for international audiences, and whom are members of the Chamber. The gathering was held at The Kensington Hotel, a stunning hotel part of The Doyle Collection, also members of the Chamber.
This event was especially interesting because John Waterman, from Avocets Consulting, who is a networking specialist, created an enjoyable and dynamic atmosphere where all the participants were encouraged to interact with each other while learning some tips about networking.
During the evening, our Secretary General, Igor Urra, gave a short speech to thank guests for their support and to highlight the importance of creating a solid professional network. Afterwards, he gave the floor to Mr. Waterman who started the networking masterclass.
While attendees enjoyed a glass of wine John Waterman shared some tips on how to improve your social and networking skills. First, Mr. Waterman explained us some guidelines and inter-cultural differences to consider while networking. Secondly, all the participants performed some exercises like How to join a group conversation or Phrases for exiting a conversation, with the main objective to improve our social skills, abilities, pitching, etc.
We would like to thank our guests for joining us on the evening and we are very grateful to The Kensington Hotel for kindly holding this event and especially the support of Esther Lapole, Director of Sales of the hotel, with this activity. We are also grateful to our eloquent trainer, John Waterman, for such a productive and amusing evening!
