You get out what you put in
A community’s value is directly tied to the quality and frequency of each individual’s contributions. It helps a lot that there are so many benefits from being part of one!
Here are 10:
1. Grow your professional network
Netwomen can help you build deeper relationships with people who can help your career – and also help build relationships that can land that deal, important introduction, partnership, client, interview etc.
2. Opportunity to Give back
Whether it’s informally through chatting or a more structured programme of mentorship, you can make a significant difference to someone’s career and support your own area by encouraging new talent and ideas.
3. Opportunity to Try something new
If you’re considering a change of direction, joining a community is a great way to explore an industry sector or role.
4. Get practical and confidential advice in a safe space
Communities make great sounding boards for ideas and challenges.
5. Find better jobs, faster
Community involvement gives a far richer picture of candidates and companies than an interview could. Demonstrate your knowledge and the way you interact with your community.
6. Make better choices – finding suppliers, technology, partners, consultants, advisors, agencies and more
You may not even need to ask a question – searching through past interactions with other members could show you the answers you need.
7. Take a step up in your career
The netwomen workshops, coaching, and global events allow you to tap into your potential and motivation to be your best self.
8. Increase your visibility in your industry and further afield
On the netwomen member app you can be added to our member directory where you can share your bio, links and professional accolades. Directories, public or private, can lead to unexpected connections between contacts new and old.
9. Stay up to date with what’s going on in your industry
We all have great intentions about keeping informed. We’ll stay active on Linked In, We’ll follow industry experts on social media. However, the most important topics will ultimately appear first in communities.
10. Exposing Multiple sources of inspiration
It only takes one conversation, article, or someone else’s experience to be struck with inspiration. Expose yourself to this by joining our community!
See for yourself how the netwomen experience is different from WhatsApp, Slack, LinkedIn or Facebook Groups. Netwomen is a safe space to connect, communicate and collaborate with other women who have your back.
