One Definite No-No on LinkedIn

September 3, 2015 | Robyn Henderson

If the content of your article doesn't live up to the title you sucked readers in with. You will be sorry - because they won't be back.

As you know I am a LinkedIn fan and encourage everyone to spend time creating a strong profile and spend at least 10 minutes per day (on average) with your LinkedIn activity. I enjoy reading many of the posts that my connections post, though I do limit myself to a handful of posts each day. […]



Post Event Wrap Up

Communication Stabliser

I have just returned from an international annual conference in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand.  Wow… what a huge venue it is.  Actually, the fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr and Manny Pacquiao has just been held there.  I can absolutely guarantee I did not pay $3,000 per ticket to attend my conference! I sat […]



What Percentage of The LinkedIn Australian Reach Would You Like?

LinkedIn Summary Update

I am always on the look out for articles about LinkedIn and other people’s opinions of the do’s and don’ts. So it was reassuring today to read the Sydney Morning Herald  and an article by Samantha Riley and see an article that was aligned with most of my views. Interestingly, the latest number of users […]



It’s Not What You Know Or Who You Know…It’s Who Knows YOU

May 11, 2015 | Pix Jonasson

Are you staying visible and connected, so new opportunities come your way?

It’s amazing how networking, building relationships and not being afraid to actually ask for something can get you (or your client) somewhere. If you are reading this, then you would be aware that I am a regular contributing author to the WNA blog.  Something I treasure, value and appreciate.  Thanks Lynette and the fab WNA […]



Success In Relationships

April 13, 2015 | Pix Jonasson

There are many keys to successful relationships - communication, trust and making time for each other are some of the most important.

I am sure you all understand that communication is one of the keys to successful relationships.  And remember, we have two ears and one mouth…use them in that order. Whether it is with co-workers, friends, family or partners, some relationships are worth nurturing. Sadly, often unintentionally, people tend to ruin some of the most precious […]



Are You Well Groomed On The Inside?

April 10, 2015 | Sue Lester

Invest in yourself

Imagine if your best friend always smiled and paid you a compliment or said a kind word each time you met. You can imagine how fantastic you’d feel then. So imagine what it would be like if you were consistently met with a frown, a sigh, and even harsh critical words from this person whose […]



Latest News From LinkedIn

April 2, 2015 | Robyn Henderson

When opting to start your own business online networking is just as valuable as face to face networking.

One of my networking tools is reading newspapers and staying abreast of the news – knowing that what makes the news can create opportunities as well as challenges for small business today and people in my network. There was an article in the Weekend Australian that made me realise why so many women are starting […]



Is It Time To Overhaul Your Approach To Networking?

March 17, 2015 | Catriona Pollard

Networking is not about getting business cards, it's about connecting through conversation.

Have you ever wondered why you aren’t making more business connections or increasing your clientele? Do you ever attend an industry event and mingle with colleagues or industry friends and not end up talking to anyone new?  If you answered yes to one or both of these questions you need a networking overhaul. Networking isn’t […]



Forget ‘Public Speaking’, Just Share Your Message

March 16, 2015 | Sue Lester

Grow your business by affiliate marketing. It's about creating a win-win situation.

The fear of ‘Public Speaking’ stops many people in their tracks, and hinders them from sharing their expertise and growing their businesses and careers. Whether you like it or not, you are walking, talking business card and advertisement, so you might as well make the most of it. A warning though, if you don’t reflect […]



Give First Impressions A Second Chance: Great Customer Service At Events Matters

March 13, 2015 | Pix Jonasson

Never burn your bridges. Regardless of the reception you receive always be the bigger person when networking in the community and at events.

It’s amazing how things can turn around if you continue to work on building relationships, are ethical and provide good customer service.  Upon first meeting a prominent local businessman, he asked what I did and if I was a member of a certain business organisation.  After explaining what I did and that I was not […]
