I've been in business for over 10 years and always networked, but I've never done this before. I have to say it's a revelation. I love the outdoors and I think just being surrounded by nature lets people relax in a way that you can't when you're in an internal environment. There's something about walking, being physical and being outside in nature that lets people relax and just talk rather than feeling like they have to sell. It just changes people's mindset, which I think is the main benefit of Met Walking.
Getting out and about, walking and networking with new people is great! People feel more relaxed because they are out walking and within nature we're not sat down in a stuffy office or meeting room. I think it's really important to move your body because it really does relax you and help you to be more authentic. Everyone is dressed more relaxed, wearing trainers and not suited and booted so we don't have to put on a front or anything like that.
