Off Line Networks ~ Bring Back London Ecademy Events

Friday, January 13th, 2012


At the beginning of this week I wrote about Business : Build On Trust Me, You Chose My Network and wanted to share with you the journey of trusting both online and offline networking Trust yourself posted by ed percival tells you to reflect when you first trusted someone and the first person you learnt to mistrust. Your gut instinct will TELL you everything you need to know about the person you are with.

Yesterday
I attended a NRG Business networks meeting at The Vale Hotel, Hensol and enjoyed a 1-2-1 withDave Clarke CEO of this Network. The host Huw Lewis, was living a little closer to me in Wales and was amazed I knew so much about Dave. smile Thanks to Ecademy and my Network I have got to know Dave through a series of social media networks and tools before meeting him ‘face to face’ for the first time. A family man and an experienced business man with people skills pouring out of his pores.

How good is that, belonging to a network that encourages both online and offline networking?.

Connecting the dots on social media networks.

Penny Power OBE wrote a book called

‘Know me, like me, follow me’ book

download

In this book Penny helps you understand how you can build your social media community. Here are a few examples of how that message translates for me on the web.

Connect for energy.
Make new friends preferably happy ones. Research by Harvard University shows that each happy friend you have, increases our chances of being happy by 9%, while each unhappy friend we have, only decreases our odds of being happy by 7%. So statistically we’re better off with a new friend than without one.

Laugh

I laugh a lot with a few chosen witty connections

Help each other.
I created my fan page on FB  (and more) with the help of a ‘high’ sharing connections.

Sharing

I love the ‘footprints in the sand’ analogy which suggests when the load gets too ‘heavy’ you share the load. Being present listening to the  successes and the ‘tough times’ of a new connection. I share my high’s and lows with special connections and YOU!

Act.

Do you get to know your connections?

Have you tried laughing or crying or dancing with your connections?. Being pro active I do all of these things through my blogs, organising and attending events. I’ve met and joined countless new friends through events. Many of whom are now shining stars through out the social media networks.

Making time for your social media connections

Hug your connections.

There are many different ways you can hug your connections. Retweeting their blogs, and commenting, agreeing, agreeing to disagree on their posts.

Be You.

Listening to Olly Murs being interviewed on Radio One last night, on route back from the M25, I heard the interviewer say the audience immediately connected with Olly on stage. Why? He loves entertaining by being himself and he genuinely loves performing in front of his audience.

Enjoy time together through events, these can be online through skype, webinars or offline by arranging promotional events at your favourite venues,

Spreading real value over the web is an art.

Franklin Levinson facebook page is an example of how he shares his lifetime skill and experiences of  building trust with horses.
