Learning to quickly and easily organise information for written and verbal communication is a skill which benefits everyone. Our Communication Skills courses enhance that ability and in particular the ‘How to get Your Point Across’ and ‘Presentation Skills’ modules emphasise these skills. In addition these topics are often incorporated in Leadership Development.
A good example came from a recent 14-session ‘Communication Skills’ course run ‘in house’ for a group of young engineers. As an assignment, using the simple formula practised during sessions, they were asked to write a brief article on ‘The Benefits of Networking’. I have used the example provided by Bisisiwe Ndlovu, metallurgist.
Networking is one of the most fundamental things that keep both people and their companies afloat and running. This has been proven to be the main fuel behind a lot of people’s success and that of their businesses.
Networking is most beneficial to businesses and companies. Most companies gain recognition and publicity through the art of networking. Some companies are even recognized internationally through good networking skills. For instance, Hulamin is a well-known producer of semi-fabricated and fabricated aluminum products both nationally and internationally. This was achieved through proper networking skills.
Networking can also be beneficial to people. It can help them improve their businesses performance, products and staff skills. As well as that, it can help them develop knowledge and skills by providing them with opportunities to market themselves and their products. People also use networking to boost their reputation and to gather new leads. Some even raise their business profile by becoming an established and regular networking member, getting their face and business known.
The community can also benefit through networking. Most community based organizations are formed through the collaboration of the community with fellow business personnel. In this case networking can be the fertilizer that fosters the development of good relationship between individuals and organizations. Networking can also benefit the community and organizations by assisting them to form organizational partnership, collaborating projects and sharing of services. This in turn results in the reduction in overheads and the sharing of staff.
In conclusion networking is one of the beneficial tools that can lead people to their goals. All in all, networking leads to success.”
