The Knowledge Action Network Marketplace

The Knowledge Action Network Marketplace


We’re here today because we’re celebrating
The Knowledge Action Network which is a fantastic project. It’s an opportunity for the delegates,
all the small businesses on board to network with each other, to make contacts, to promote
their products and services to each other and then also we’re having the opportunity
for all the businesses to actually pitch to each other to promote what they do, and hopefully
gain more business and grow even more. I think it’s well worth it because you get to
see lots of people, you can see what’s on offer. There might be support out there you
didn’t actually think that you needed. This event is a very good way to showcase our business
to everybody. I’ve already received a lot of business cards and we’ve attracted quite
a lot of attention, not just people today but people who know people, their contacts
who needs our solutions, is quite a popular trend, so yeah I think it’s going to be very
useful going forward, and I hope to be attending more of these. I think they’re a great springboard
really, particularly for smaller businesses that have the confidence to interact with
each other and set their stalls out as it were, and get together. And you meet all sorts
of different people that you wouldn’t expect to meet at an event like this, so you never
know who’s going to be walking up to your stand. Networking, I think is important, just
to get out there and see what else is around. Giving you more inspiration, I think, to re-look,
take time out from your business. It just makes you think, what’s going well, what’s
working and implement change as well. I need to look at the strategy of the business and
what is key taking the business forwards. And that’s been absolutely brilliant, it’s
made me look at the business, stand back, and look at the business in a very different
way. And I thought the class this morning was brilliant. The presentation that Damian
Hughes did was fantastic. I think what it allows people to do is have the conversations
that you want to have, but maybe haven’t got time to have. So yes, it’s a very good forum.
