Event information / agenda

A Big House Event supported by Creative Quarter & delivered by debbiedooodah


It's said that your net worth is closely linked to your network, and as naff as this sounds, there is truth in this statement. In this workshop Debbie will help you get strategic about how to build those all-important relationships and how to influence people.

In this workshop you’ll learn:

  • The power of networking – a couple of years ago Debbie calculated that networking had bought her an additional £200k+ in work!
  • How to network for people who don’t like networking
  • Getting strategic about partnerships and relationships
  • Keeping up connections with lapsed clients and customers
  • Why relationships come first not ‘selling’
  • Presenting yourself with confidence & building rapport
  • Business growth & winning clients


This workshop is ideal for all businesses from start-ups to those aspiring to grow., who want to build better relationships.
