Whether you’re an events rookie or a seasoned pro, networking can be a hard slog.

For many businesspeople, networking is something they know they should be doing, but dread it so much that they never actually do it.

Pacing a room, trying to strike up a conversation with complete strangers and sell yourself and your business is a tough ask, even for the most confident of people.

It can push us right out of our comfort zone to the point where we convince ourselves it’s a bad idea and just avoid it all together.

Yet, when done properly, with a proper plan and some key objectives in mind, networking can be one of the most effective ways of growing your business and making key contacts with potential new customers.

In this episode of the Lover Business Podcast, we talk to Philip Brooks-Stephenson and Stephen Goddard, who founded premium business networking organisation KuKu Connect, about what it takes to win at networking.

They share their top tips and outline the simple steps that you can take to make sure you get the most out of the networking events you attend, make those crucial new connections and build prosperous relationships with your fellow networkers.
