Big companies absolutely have a place at small business networking events like Met Walking. I'm very familiar with the motto of ‘people buying from people’ and I know that a consultative and personal relationship will go a lot further in a sales industry than the traditional ‘Del Boy’ / take your money and run type salesman. Relationship building is very, very important to me and my business and Met Walking facilitates that.
I think it's really useful to have a forum where I can go out and see people every month. They've got a chance to get to know me and vice versa. It helps to be out of the office or meeting room in a different environment. Some walkers bring their friends, dogs and even their kids so it's generally a relaxed atmosphere.
It feels like an environment where people are open to opportunity and looking for something where it's genuine and there's a real connection. I feel like I've learned a lot from these networking events that have been helpful for me not just in business, but also useful life skills.
