Networking in Hong Kong is a big thing in Hong Kong with it being a very competitive environment. I have been a member of BNI (Business Networking International) for 2 and a half years and it is indeed a great platform to an effective growth for connections, business leads as it is a referral or word-of-mouth marketing and a training ground specially for those whose set up a business and needed a support system to make their strategy “warmer” through visibility, credibility, trust and more trust! Now you might ask why I’m putting it on hold. The reason is being (and I have been reminded of this many times through BNI), “wind sprints“. We gotta remember the basics…I have had too many on my plates, too eager and excited of new ideas and opportunities that comes up that I sometimes forget myself. So now, I’m going back to the basics, I call this being “undercover” (Just like the Undercover Boss TV Show) to keep on learning from people FOR people 🙂
There are different organizations that offers networking activities and events, one of which is our own Defin8tion focusing on professionals and new-to-Hong Kong looking for things they can do and where to meet leads for business or simply meet friends. It’s a community for highly motivated, well driven, compassionate, with integrity and open mindedness to reach out and help others who are trying to make a difference and be successful.
For those who’d like to know more on an effective networking practices you can check this link. I’ll be extracting excerpts from various links that I stumble upon, which deems to be useful for those who might need it 🙂
