Andrew Smith’s presentation was the highlight of the evening, offering attendees practical advice on how to leverage networking to their advantage.

Smith emphasised several key components essential for effective networking:

  • Diversity: Building a network that spans various industries and backgrounds.
  • Reciprocity: Focusing on offering value to others rather than just seeking benefits.

Andrew Smith, key speaker for the event from KLT Networking commented “I very much enjoyed the event, there was a good buzz and I’m confident everyone has taken something from it.”

The atmosphere at neospace was buzzing with energy as attendees exchanged ideas, shared experiences, and expanded their professional circles. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive, with many participants expressing gratitude for the opportunity to learn from Andrew Smith and connect with like-minded professionals.

Kelci Graham, Head Host at Neospace, said, “Andrew’s insights were incredibly valuable. It’s not just about meeting people; it’s about building relationships that can lead to mutual growth and success.”

“The main networking lesson was that by combining strategies and maintaining a genuine interest in others, you can build strong, supportive relationships and networks that benefit both your personal and professional life.”

The success of this event underscores the importance of community-driven initiatives that foster professional development and collaboration.

Scott Paton, Managing Director of neospace commented “I met Andrew originally and ironically via ABN whilst hosting a Gold Event at Neospace. We were delighted to collaborate and host our recent event Chat Coffee Connect and have Andrew (KLT) as our special guest speaker”.
