People often see networking as an opportunity to promote themselves. And it definitely is, to a certain extent. But if you find it hard to promote yourself you are not alone…
At every Athena Executive Club we have a section called Monthly Minutes where each of the 20 ladies at the meeting stand up for one minute and share about their business. This includes who they are, what they do and how their fellow members can help them.
Later in the meeting, we have ‘Let’s Talk Business’ where we give testimonials and thank other people in the group for providing a service that has helped us. It always makes me smile – no matter how shy or new to Monthly Minutes some of our visitors are – during Let’s Talk Business they simply come alive. It’s just much easier to show appreciation for someone else than it is to talk about ourselves 🙂
At Athena, championing each others success is what we do best.
As this month is our Anniversary we are playing Testimonial Tag on Facebook.
All you have to do is:
1) Go to our Facebook page (like the page).
2) Share the Happy Anniversary image with testimonial for someone in the community who has helped you or inspired you.
3) Don’t forget to tag them and include the hashtag #happybirthdayAthenaSG
You post privacy needs to be public or we might not see it!
Everyones hash-tagged posts will be entered into a lucky draw and I’m offering a 2 hour, in-person, networking strategy masterclass worth $250 to 5 winners!
Tomorrow evening we are celebrating our anniversary with drinks at The Halia. All 30 tickets have sold out but I’m waiting for the venue to confirm a bigger space. If you would like to join us please add your name to the waiting-list and we will release seats as soon as we hear! Everyone is welcome (subject to space), gentlemen too.
We look forward to welcoming you.
PS> Are you an introvert who wants to network but can’t pluck up the courage? Drop me a message and I’ll personally welcome you at our next event and make sure you are taken care of by one of our members!
To our success,
