What makes Opendoorz different from Other Business Networking Groups
Opendoorz is unlike any other networking group; in fact we prefer to see ourselves as a professional business network. We help you build a trusted network of introducers, strategic partners, suppliers, mentors and friends, offering expert guidance, inspiration and a dose of laughter and fun along the way.
A professional support network of those you trust is behind every truly successful enterprise. And Opendoorz is all about easing this path to success. If you’ve been sceptical before about a networking group, then give the Opendoorz approach a go – we really put the cherry on the top!
QualityIf you surround yourself with a networking group made up of the right calibre of professionals, then this can only help your business. Which is why, at Opendoorz we know it’s worth being selective as success lies in quality rather than volume. We don’t believe in the ‘pack ‘em in’ philosophy and so it’s better that you’re the right fit for the group. Each new member is chosen because of what they can bring to the group, and how they can directly influence the businesses of other members.
ResultsOur members consistently say that being involved in an Opendoorz group is the backbone of their sales and marketing activity, sometimes it’s the only marketing they do! And the reason they’re so confident to put all their eggs in one basket? It’s because it brings results. Many business owners and self-employed professionals value the camaraderie and feedback from being in a team. An Opendoorz networking group provides a support network, where you can give and receive feedback to further your business. Where success is measured by the quality and not the quantity of the introductions made.
ConnectionsYour business thrives on building up and maintaining working relationships, those that can introduce you to new clients and where you can offer the same in return. Networking with Opendoorz is where you can make those first steps to establishing those valuable connections. The format of membership ensures that there is a regular stream of new faces that you’ll meet. Each member brings along new connections to the monthly guest events – whether they be clients, suppliers, contacts or friends. As a member of an Opendoorz networking group, you will be the sole representative of your profession within that group. But it’s through meeting others within the industry that you can embrace the benefits of having a wider professional support network.
Improve your skillsIt’s by consistently learning something new that you keep your professional skills fresh and up to date. Opendoorz is really committed to the ethos of Continuous Professional Development and engaging CPD runs throughout all of our meetings. Whether it’s picking up industry knowledge, enhancing your networking skills or finding out about the latest innovation in business at a guest event or involving yourself in an interactive exercise in a group meeting – you’ll find it an invaluable key to your business success.
No matter how good we think we are it’s what our members and guests say that matters most…
