Everyone understands the benefit of walking: it relieves stress, releases mood enhancing endorphins and burns calories.
People who have noticed that great conversations often happen while you walk have capitalised on this to introduce business networking walks. As part of Just Networking Romsey (JNR) Maddison Coaching will add a third benefit by adding their group coaching skills to enhance the support available during this networking opportunity.
The Group Coaching
Bringing her varied experiences and professional qualifications, Vicky draws on a diverse set of coaching techniques to get the most out of the session for all walkers. Typical group coaching topics for the netwalking may include: networking to develop and maintain relationships; building your business culture and values; and being confident with your sales pitch. To get the very best from the group coaching we would like you to choose the topics, so be sure to raise your suggestions with us either on the day or as you book your place.
What to expect
Net-walkers will start each session with some refreshments and the opportunity to introduce themselves during the first group coaching activity led by Vicky. The walk – around an hour over beautiful but easy terrain – is then an opportunity for walkers to discuss any topics further, perhaps share their own business experiences or challenges with others. The netwalk then concludes back at the starting point with a final chance to exchange business cards and discuss that vital question what next?
Value for money
Each walk costs just £20 per delegate (free to all JNR members), which includes refreshments, the guided walk and the group coaching session. After each walk, you will also have access to our net-walking members listing so you can connect with and support the other business professionals who you have met.
How to book?
Booking for ‘First Friday Netwalking’ (FFN) is essential and can be done up to the evening before each walk. You can book via Eventbrite here: First Friday Netwalking
“I encourage everyone to try it: to enjoy the open air, some gentle exercise, alongside the networking and coaching opportunity. Depending on where we are going, walkers can usually bring dogs on leads too – another benefit!” Vicky Maddison
