Global Entrepreneurship Week

I ran a workshop for Liverpool University as part of Global Entrepreneurship Week  this was just one of 40,000 events over 104 countries. The aim is to drive the next generation of entrepreneurs and business owners.

I was helping the students to use business networking to find out about job opportunities and to get themselves known within their business community. The students were from the UK and from China. We explored who they might want to meet and talked about the best networking opportunities for them.

John Lees in the Harvard Business Review believes that that on average about one-third of jobs are filled through word of mouth connections. Consequently, networking is about “expanding your horizons, meeting new people, and about discovery” if you want career success. The conclusion is that Business Networking is an essential tool for finding new employment for students and for anybody looking for a job.
