THE NEW WAVE OF NETWORKING?: THE MERIT CLUB
March’s topic in THE COLLECTIVE (my members area - find out more here) has been visibility and the forms it takes beyond PR and networking was one of these that we have all being discussing.
Many of us are of the mind that we ‘need to do more of it’ both ‘In Real Life’ and online. I have done a lot of networking over the last 12-18 months to build my business and have blogged on the topic previously. Some of the most transformative and valuable experiences and connections from the last 18 months have come from networking. A variety of networking is important but I wanted to share something new that I have recently come across.
The Merit Club is an “an online members' club for women with a mission to help you enliven your schedules and enrich your lifestyle while connecting you to a striving community of women through our events. This community is based on support and curiosity and we want you to be part of it!”
Taking a lifestyle approach to business networking, The Merit Club is perhaps part of a ‘new wave’ of networking, that combines the best of the offline with the best of the digital. Discounts for afternoon tea and pampering sit alongside access to online content, training workshops and co-working with other members at exclusive venues.
Possibly worth a look? I’m giving it a go.
