Is networking worth the bother?

Thinking about networking and the unexpected, about opportunities and opening doors, and the importance of just … taking them. Saying yes.

A few months back my partner and I co hosted a Christmas party and quiz for Sussex Playwrights.

One of the guests enjoyed it so much he offered us the chance to deliver a four week acting course for the New Venture Theatre in Brighton and a one day acting workshop for sixth formers at Reigate College.

We’ve just finished them – if we hadn’t done the event we’d never have had this amazing new opportunity.

The theatre’s name couldn’t be more appropriate 😁

Networking is so important – we’ve had work from all the networking groups we belong to, in person and online.

What networking groups do you belong to and recommend?

If it’s on your to do list – time to get out there and join the conversation?
