Last Thursday, the Club90 Alderley Edge business network held their second virtual networking meeting.
Arranged by Colony Networking in conjunction with marketing consultancy, Think Beyond, business leaders from Alderley Edge and the wider North West logged in to the quarterly lunchtime session. The theme for this quarter was “trust and learning” with three talks dedicated to the topic. Club90 sessions are held virtually during the pandemic.
Trust, learning, unlearning and relearning on the Club90 business networking agenda
Lisa Edwards, global business leadership and performance strategist of Evolve Collaboration Ltd, delivered the main talk; exploring how trust and learning empower people and performance.
Kirsty James of Colony Networking focussed her spotlight presentation on trust within the framework of business relationship building. Mercè Cozens of Think Beyond built on this by answering why marketing myopia is important, linking leadership with growth opportunities.
‘I really enjoyed speaking at the Club90 networking event,” said Lisa.
“I focussed on trustworthiness, alongside the importance of unlearning as well as relearning – and how I feel they connect brilliantly into humble leadership. What a fantastic audience with great insights to share – it really was a joy to take part!’ she added.
Kirsty commented, “It’s important to me that networking events I host, facilitate or attend include much more than networking. Learning, personal development, engagement, discussion and business support are of equal importance.
“I couldn’t be happier that we got the chance to offer three talks at this quarter’s Club90 event focussed on the themes of trust (and trustworthiness) and learning (and unlearning). This sparked valuable discussion and offered practical take-aways.
“I look forward to the next Club90 event in October.”
Mercè said, “The Alderley Edge business networking Club90 is more than a networking club; it is an opportunity to connect, learn and grow. I am proud to be part of this business network.
“Thank you to my wonderful co-hosts, Lisa and Kirsty for their valuable insights and practical tips.
“Theodore Levitt coined the term “marketing myopia” over sixty years ago and it is still important to organisations today. Marketing is not only about selling a specific product or service but also understanding (and fulfilling) customer needs.”
