After the members have all given their 60 second talk you will get a chance to tell us about your business. We know it can be a daunting prospect for some but don't worry we have all been in your shoes and know how you feel the first time.
Here are a few tips to help you prepare your 60 second presentation
State your name and the name of your business
What you do
The best way to tell us what you do is tell a a story about how you have helped a client and how they benefited from your product or service.
What would be a good referral for you
Be as specific as possible - are you looking to get an introduction into a company that you want to do business with or is there a specific industry sector you want sell to? If you have a name of a person or their title in a company its possible a member can help. For example "I am looking to get an introduction to Mary Callaghan the HR Manager in Printcom" or "I would like to meet the marketing mangers of multi store retail chains"
Finish by reminding everyone your name and the name of your company
