Rebecca Newenham, founder of Get Ahead VA, is delighted to have been selected as a Finalist in the prestigious Networking Mummies UK Ltd Recognition National Business Awards in the ‘Best Networker of the Year’ category.
Networking Mummies UK Ltd supports mums, dad and families in business with free networking events, affordable workshops and online and offline support. Their National Business Awards recognise the hard working mums and dads across the country. The best networker of the year is designed to highlight someone who realises that it's not just about who is in the room at the time but also everybody's connections and how they can be utilised to grow each others’ businesses.
Networking is an important part of Rebecca’s job. She loves meeting new people and prides herself on being an excellent matchmaker – matching our clients’ needs to the right VA. Rebecca says: ‘I always attend networking meetings with an open mind. Where possible, I check out who is attending before to maximise the opportunity when I am there. Depending on the structure of the meeting, if I have a one minute opportunity I always tailor it to the audience and add in real life examples to make it relevant. I ask the people I meet who their ideal client/market is so I am clear as to how I can help. I pride myself on being very good at spending time following up afterwards – through social media and directly. Meeting someone at a networking event should be the start of a networking journey – not just a fleeting event.”
The winners will be announced at a glitzy black tie awards ceremony on Saturday 29th March at Jury’s Inn in Birmingham. We wish our Rebecca and all the other Finalists good luck!
