Networking is still the most effective way to drive new business

however, online presents a new challenge

Networking Online

Ideal for organisations of all types


Unless you are selling your products or services online your number one way to get new business is and always has been networking. However, it is a skill that has been lost in the modern world of smart devices. This is not a difficult skill to learn but once you make up your mind and implement the skills from this workshop a whole new world of business will open up to you. As a bonus you will see your social life benefit from what you are doing naturally and with confidence.


Networking has moved online and that requires you to adapt to meet this new challenge.
As the longest serving member of Ireland’s premier networking organisation, Dublin Chamber of Commerce let me show you what I have learnt over the last 30 years and why it still works.

Feel confident, knowing what to say and how to position your organisation when meeting new people. Remember, this is about attracting happy long-term clients rather than losing people after the one off sale.This long-term strategy will give you stunning results once you implement it correctly and consistently. This positioning naturally drives business in your direction.

Client Testimonial

Alec recently spoke at our Sydney Diamond Club session and the feedback I received from our attendees was that Alec shared information about networking in such a way he made us think in contexts we hadn't considered before. I believe the mark of a great speaker is someone who helps the audience think in ways they've not thought before. Alec certainly did this. Thanks Alec!
