Fun Business Networking: A Different Way of Doing Business
Welcome to The Fun Business Network:
Make Friends, Make Money and Have Fun
The Fun Business Network is the only business network in the world that:
- Pays you for referrals that lead to business - Make networking your business
- Doesn't talk business for the first half of our events
- Allows our members flexibility with attendance
- Focuses on building relationships as a foundation for networking
- Only encourages you to refer business to people you like and trust
It works on a simple premise: focus on good people and building relationships first and everything else will fall into place. This network is different because we do not talk about business during most of the event: we simply start conversations to establish common interests and trust. The business conversation happens after we work out whether we like and trust each other first, at the end of each event.
Do you find business networking events impersonal, challenging, or unproductive?
Are you wary of passing on your best business connections on to people you have just met?
More importantly, do you enjoy the experience of networking for your business?
Traditional business networking works fabulously for some, and not so well for others. Many of our members are also members of other business networks. We welcome collaboration.
This is a fun alternative in business networking that focuses on the people and getting to know them on a personal level before you discuss your business with them. It could be called a half-way house between business networking and an afternoon/evening having fun and meeting new people.
Our philosophy is: first get to know the person, and then decide if you want to know what their business does.
How does it work?
We offer a less formal, more fun environment where people are able to mix business and pleasure. The event runs for 2.5 hours but people usually stay on for longer and get to know each other better. For the event, you will be given a number, put into a group and given a random conversation starter, some more controversial than others. This means: no more standing around at networking events wondering who to talk to or what to say. We also ask that you turn your phone off for this hour and stay completely present with the experience. This may not be easy for some!
The main reason's our members attend:
- It's a fun, relaxing way to meet new friends in business
- Attend if you can, but you don't have to be there (if you get too busy to attend, we appreciate that)
- Have great conversations
- Stay on after and continue the conversation(s)
- Make friends before deciding who to do business with
- We organise fun, social activities for our members
- Have access to our Whatsapp group to ask for help between visits
- Membership includes ongoing training in pitching, networking and presenting skills
- This is the only business network that encourages paid referrals. You can make networking your business
This event is an experience, and each one is different!
What's in it for you?
Your first event is free. If you would like to meet more fun and interesting friends in business, come along and experience it for yourself. If networking is an important part of your business but you are not getting the results you want or enjoying it, or are simply curious about what this is, join us and discover something different in the business networking experience.
Also, please note that not everyone is a good fit for this type of networking experience, which is why membership is by invitation only.
We hope you can make it soon,
The Fun Networking Team
