Have you attended a business association dinner or event hoping to meet some potential clients? Or gone to a networking function with the intention of getting introductions to people who could help you grow your business? Were you afterwards disappointed when your time, and the cost to attend the event, has been unrewarded - you've made no new contacts or connections!

There is both an art and a science to networking – of importance is:
Why business to business networking is your key to success. If you do it the right way.
Give Before You Expect to Receive.
Our Motto – is more “we and less me” – this is all part of building a relationship and taking an interest in other people , asking them questions, giving them advice (when wanted) being there for them and thanking them in return for anything you receive from them. Simple?
I’m at the 25 year mark for starting Focused Networking – and I have members that have been with me for 20 years, and one who recently retired after 24 years. I’m very proud of the lives I have changed through Focused Networking and Achieving Excellence which all boils down to the education, feedback and support they receive.

“this all looks good but my business is different than most – will this networking group really help me?”
Yes! Because we, too, are different from other networks. Focused Networking Ltd. is about building solid business relationships so that you can exchange referrals and help each other with confidence.
What Makes Us Different
Business Spotlights: Present your business and give everyone in the group a chance to really understand what you do, who you serve and who would be a good referral for you

One member per industry: No competition within the network
No pressure relationship building: No forced referrals – if you are fully engaged and participate in peer to peer networks you will receive quality referrals from others within the group. You will truly receive as much as you give.
