Network & Partnerships

We collaborate with other like minded businesses and create strong industry and support networks for both companies and candidates.

Collaboration not competition

It’s not what you know,
it’s who you know!

The old adage of ‘it’s not what you know, it’s who you know’ permeates through every aspect of life, and in business the power of networks and partnerships is unrivalled.

B2B referrals, supplier recommendations, online reviews and social media sharing are all imperative to your brand and allow you to connect and interact with a wider range of potential clients and customers.

Through knowledge exchange and content sharing, networks and partnerships also allow businesses to access skills, knowledge and services from specialists and experts.

FAQ’s

Have questions? We have answers

There are a lot of networking groups out there. How do I find the right ones for me?
Google networking groups and you’ll generate thousands of hits within Australia alone. Networking can be costly and time consuming, so it’s important to find the right networking group/s for you. Start by thinking about what you want to achieve from networking and narrow down your search criteria by your industry, role content, location, or diversity group.

Once you have a list of prospective networking groups, check each group’s social media presence, see how often they host events, review the quality and range of topics and speakers, read their blogs and consider how regularly they update the content on their website, and don’t forget to ask group members you know and trust for their opinions. Attend 2-3 events and ask lots of questions to see what’s required from you before committing to an annual membership. Some groups require you to actively refer business to the group and have set conditions you need to meet to retain your annual membership, whilst others are happy for you to simply be a non-active member.

Regardless of which type of networking group you join, don’t forget to review your return on investment review at the end of each year to determine whether you are seeing value for your time and money.

How can I find out more about grants and incentives for my business?
Business incentives and grants are an amazing opportunity to receive financial injections, business mentoring and technical advice from larger, successful organisations. With multiple companies across local, state and federal government, as well as the private sector, sponsoring these programs, the choice can become overwhelming and it can be difficult to decipher what is right for your business. Let Inclusive People Solutions simplify this process by utilising our networks and partnerships to educate you on the grants and incentives applicable to your business.
There is so much information available online nowadays, do I really need to utilise face to face networking?
There is no doubt it is easier to spend time networking on social media than by networking face to face. For those who have the time, money and confidence to take advantage of this style of interactive networking, the benefits include:

Personal Branding – Acquiring knowledge, mastering new ideas and gaining valuable insights from content matter experts whilst also building your credibility, expertise and brand by sharing and imparting your knowledge and experience to others.

Business Growth – Generating business referrals and making valuable industry connections, by connecting with a diverse range of collaborators and potential clients who can increase your market presence.

Career Opportunities – Identifying and evaluating prospective employers and employees in a collaborative, non formal setting, and making connections that can reduce time spent on future recruitment activities.
