Getting the right people into your contact database

How to meet the right people

Yesterday I was driving back from Glasgow pondering a new business brainwave – more of that in due course – when I started to put together all the people I would need to speak to get this off the ground. I need to get to people in all the high places and then reflected on how I managed to get these people into my contacts list. When I started in business I would have given my right arm to be able to meet these decision makers and influencers so I thought some new businesses might like a word of suggestion to fast track them to the right people.

Join some local business groups such as the Women in Business, FSB, Association of……whatever, Insititute of……whatever and volunteer for committees. Committees are notoriously short of activists and if your business is newish you will probably have enough time to take part and help. And I guarantee that you will meet the right people a heck of a lot more quickly
