Before joining Fresh Networking

“For me networking was always something I knew I had to do, but before joining Fresh it was virtually non-existent. For me networking was confronting, very formal. Running a business is hard enough as it is, let alone finding time to actually do networking.”

What Michael loves about Fresh Networking

“The focus of Fresh Networking is about building relationships. When you get to know someone, when you get to trust someone a referral will occur naturally. And when you refer it’s a warm lead, so it’s easy for that person to convert that lead.”

How Fresh Networking has grown Michael’s business?

By being part of the Fresh Network, I’ve been able to connect with more people, which benefits my clients as I have been able to provide them with help that directly addresses the problem that they have. Clients now come to me first if they have an issue, because they know I can always find someone within the Fresh Network that will be able to help them. And because it’s someone I trust, I know that they are going to be looked after.”

Why Michael recommends Fresh Networking

“It’s easy going, which makes it easy to develop strong relationships with other members and by doing that you get access to other members networks. In short, it’s fun, it’s easy going and it’s the future of networking.”
