Our chambers of commerce mean business in November

We’ve almost reached the end of another year, but local chambers of commerce still mean business.

The party hats are certain to come out in December, but during November our major business organisations chambers are still talking about the value of networking, future plans and the importance of engaging with educational institutions.

Narellan and Ingleburn chambers are holding their November dinner meetings this Wednesday, November 8, while Campbelltown’s is on next week on November 15.

The guest speaker at the Greater Narellan Business Chamber meeting is “brain tamer, executive coach and seasoned edutainer’’ Kendra Strudkwick.

The title of her talk is: The Neuroscience of networking.

Ms Strudkwick, an international master facilitator with over 10 years of leadership development and executive coaching experience, will talk about a brain friendly approach to building lasting and profitable relationships.

She says most leaders understand that results can depend on the strength and quality of their networks, but few of them have a networking strategy or understand what makes an effective networker.

Being able to stand out from the crowd, build trusting and dynamic partnerships and articulate a clear and compelling message has never been more important.

Her talk promises to unpack the brain science behind building trust and intimacy, managing bias, establishing credibility and unlocking discretionary effort within diverse teams.

The dinner meeting of Narellan chamber is on this Wednesday November 8, between 6:30pm and 9pm at Harrington Grove Country Club.
