As someone who travels occasionally from outside Aberdeen but with visibility across Scotland, it’s been a delight to see how TBC has grown over the last 18 months. Recently it was particularly encouraging to meet a number of people at the Ian Marchant event who evidently had no Christian connection at all but who were comfortable coming and enjoyed the event. When this is happening it’s clear that your aim of serving the business community, whatever their background is being delivered.I have made and followed up on several good connections formed at The Business Connection monthly events.I often receive great nuggets of information from either the people attending or the monthly speaker. I have also made some good connections and friends.I think it is an excellent initiative – and I commend everyone involved. Aberdeen is a pretty tough business environment at the moment and this support can only be beneficial.It’s a positive, encouraging and supportive space.  You guys are doing a great job!This is a unique group and I am really glad I have started attending.

Now if you want to take this to another level you can create the reason to bring people together. I’m a big believer in making you the “connective hub” by hosting dinners, experiences and events. Think of it as creating a ‘sandbox’ for exceptional individuals to connect together. In fact, that’s one of the reason I started my own network of entrepreneurs called Maverick1000. We’ve done everything from fly MiG jets in Russia to build self-sustaining villages in Haiti. These shared unique or intense experiences actually accelerate business deals coming together and so many members eager to help each other.

Now if you want to take this to another level you can create the reason to bring people together. I’m a big believer in making you the “connective hub” by hosting dinners, experiences and events.

We’ve done everything from fly MiG jets in Russia to build self-sustaining villages in Haiti. These shared unique or intense experiences actually accelerate business deals coming together and so many members eager to help each other. When I meet someone, I am always consciously thinking about who in my existing network can help them. However, you don’t need to go this far. Just hosting a regular dinner is a way to get people together. Encourage guests to bring one remarkable friend or colleague and you’ve now increased your own network. Don’t over think it. When you put smart people in the room together you don’t need to do much. Finally, all of these insights only work if you genuinely want to connect to someone without keeping score or worrying about what can you get from them this very moment. I like to invest in relationships that could last for decades. That means not trying to amass all the benefits instantly. And that counts for business transactions too. I like to ensure the other person has a bigger win than I do so they never feel like I got a better deal. That might happen once but it won’t happen for years and years. To me, the best connections come from deepening ties that build over time. – This is a guest blog and may not represent the views of Virgin.com. Please see virgin.com/terms for more details.

Secret #2:  The first person to talk with a prospect usually makes the sale.  Here’s how you’ll impress your clients…after our receptionist has completed taking the message, she enters another keystroke and sends a text message to your mobile phone. Your mobile phone will beep or silently vibrate and the complete message will scroll across the screen. “ZAP” you have your detailed message on the screen of your phone.  You don’t even need to write anything because the entire message is displayed on your mobile phone.  If urgent, act immediately. If not, respond at your convenience.  Remember that old saying your Grandpa and favorite teacher always used “The Early Bird Catches the Worm”.  This same logic applies to today’s demanding consumer.  While Large Corporations and Big Government Agencies are hiding behind voice mail jail and the internet, you can beat the competition by responding to new sales and service calls immediately by getting call handling service for Business today. In Down Hill Skiing or the 100 yard dash, what’s the difference between winning a Gold Medal vs. Silver Medal?  You only have to be a little faster to win the Gold Medal.
