Good morning, everyone. I'm here today to talk about networking.
First, I'll introduce myself. My name is Peter North.
I first began to think about starting my own business in two thousand and one and I actually set up the company with my business partner in two thousand and four.
I'm pleased to say it's doing very well.
It's a printing firm and I'm sure the networking we've done has contributed to its success.
When we launched the company, we knew we could provide a good product.
We just didn't have enough clients!
We'd tried different methods of advertising.
We'd put ads in the trade press and on local radio, but we had the best results from advertising in a newspaper.
Then we were introduced to networking, which made a real difference.
We've made good contacts through an organisation called International Lynx that's L-Y-N-X.
