The Networking Retreat Experience

Spend the day with me – and find your networking success

Are you attending a lot of networking events, but making very few sales?

Have you tried social media and content marketing, but it seems just too much effort with no return?

Are you brilliant at making new connections, but don’t know how to turn them into customers?

Are you brilliant at what you do, but you struggle to explain the value you deliver, so it’s really hard to get a “yes”?

How to turn networking into sales – in the 21st century

A business networking, social media and content marketing workshop from Stefan Thomas – author of Business Networking for Dummies.

I’ve dealt with all of this along the way. When I first went out networking I had no idea how to talk to people about what I did, or how to translate the value so that people knew what they were buying.

When I first started writing blogs and making videos, they had no real purpose, I was just doing them, because everyone else was.

Nobody wants to feel as though they’re not moving forward, and I certainly felt that. I felt like I was doing everything right – but something was missing, and because of that, I wasn’t making the sales I felt I deserved – sound familiar?

I’m no salesman. When I watch people who can effortlessly sell, I am in total awe. And the more I watched the really successful people, the more I realised they weren’t selling. At least not what I believed selling to be. They were simply making it easy for people to buy from them, and positioning themselves in such a way that people actively wanted to buy from them, and felt good about doing so.

Once that clicked, once I worked out how to achieve that, and continue to give massive value, it was as if a light, and a tap, had been turned on.

My networking made more sense, my social media made more sense, my blogging, articles and videos made more sense. And more than that, they all made more sales.

Do you want:

More sales?

Your networking to actually work?

He was full of great tips and best practice techniques to help the attendees brush up on their networking skills. He kept everyone engaged for 90 minutes with his storytelling approach, involving the audience throughout and was very well received.”


Paul McCluskey Lloyds BankPaul McCluskey – Head of Professional Practices – Lloyds Banking Group Plc – “Stefan ran a full day workshop with my national specialist legal relationship management team. The focus for the day was building trust and Stefan tailored the day to be relevant to the roles of the audience ensuring that the day was guided but not scripted this allowing the day to flow to help address the needs of the attendees. Feedback from the team was extremely positive and I have no hesitation in recommending Stefan to anyone thinking about running a similar workshop.”
