  • Business After Business Summerland
    A Networking Opportunity 
    The Summerland Chamber of Commerce facilitates ten Business After Business events each year, hosted at different, local establishments in many business sectors.
    Business After Business is a unique networking opportunity which allows companies to forge business relationships, hear presentations on business-related topics and develop effective referral strategies.
    As Robert Kiyosaki says, “The richest people in the world look for and build networks: everyone else looks for work.”
    There is no cost to members or guests of the Summerland Chamber of Commerce. Business After Business is held on the third Thursday of the month from 4:30pm to 7pm. Members who attend get to sample wines from a local Bottleneck Drive winery, with appetizers provided by the host business.
     
    Here are some networking tips to help you get the most out of your Business After Business experience:
    • Research a few of the companies you might be interested in doing business with. Focus on success stories that might be on their blog.  This will help you with relationship building
    • People won’t always remember what you’ve said, but they will remember how you made them feel, so listen more than speak
    • Have a 15-30 second short explanation about your business that can be delivered smoothly
    • Keep your body language open
    • Don’t be afraid to introduce yourself. Remember everyone is there to network.
     
    Planning is underway for 2019 Business After Business hosts.
