Networking can be a valuable yet scary experience. At this free workshop, we’ll help you communicate with confidence, start up a conversation and leave people wanting to know more about you and your business.


Have you ever got stuck in a boring conversation? Or hung back on introducing yourself to strangers only to find you have an awkward silence shortly after meeting someone? Or not known what to say, how to relate or how to escape?

Have you ever been asked to do a 60-second sales pitch about you and your business and felt lost for words or have rambled on and not really got your point across?

In today’s fast pace and competitive marketplace, you need to get your message across quickly and in a way that makes you memorable (for all the right reasons) and encourage people to learn more about you and your business.

In this interactive session, you will discover how to chat and network with confidence and skill – even with strangers. Introduce yourself confidently, keep the conversation flowing, connect with people and exit with ease. And then stay in touch after the event and build a strong network of profitable contacts – easily.

This dynamic, practical workshop will teach you how to communicate your elevator pitch with ease and make it memorable for you and the people in the room.

This workshop is ideal for someone who:

  • Wants to improve their networking skills and have a killer elevator pitch
  • Goes networking but feels awkward and shy.
  • Holds back from introducing themselves to people.
  • Gets stuck with people and doesn’t know how to escape.
  • Has to represent their firm or organisation at networking and social events.
  • Attends conferences, seminars or other interactive forums.


This event is delivered as part of the Collaborate Growing Business Together project in partnership with Growth Hub – LLEP Business Gateway, Passion Marketing and East Midlands Chamber of Commerce and is specifically aimed at businesses based in Leicester and Leicestershire, with fewer than 250 employees and which meet the eligibility criteria.
