Networking Communication and Top Tips

In this modern age, with so many communication opportunities at our fingertips, we have reached information overload so mastering the art of effective communication has become an uphill struggle.

finding a “common language” to get results has never been…

Comments posted on the wall at Networking in Berkshire

Sorry if I sound like a stuffy teacher, wagging his finger....

May I suggest that comments posted to someone's personal wall are good, only when used as a commendation or a general reference to encourage trust, confidence and business referrals between members.

All other communications should be sent as a direct NiS message AFTER you have "connected as friends" or by private email.

Regards Arnie Fabius

Google Scam warning

Hi - just a warning about a company called Worldwide Marketing

Solutions. They called me claiming to work on behalf of Google, and

were very convincing. Believing that the caller worked for Google I

agreed to a trial with them where they would put my website on page 1 of

searches in Berkshire.

I have now found out that they have taken twice the amount of money they

mentioned from my credit card and have not delivered any of the

promises they… Continue

On that note, Derek Smeeton…

Was it a smooth journey?

Customer Relationship Management (CRM) and supporting software

Microsoft Outlook is probably the most popular way of keeping in touch with customers, friends and business associates. It is simple enough to use and covers the basic records, a diary and very efficient address book. If that satisfies you, don't let anyone persuade you to change it.

What is CRM?
