Networking - Why You NEED To Be Doing It


In today's business world networking is pretty much what it's all about. It's becoming more and more evident that in order to progress in your career and be successful, you need to be a good and competent networker.

Networking may seem scary to some (including me) but it's very much like everything else in life that initially seems scary - practice makes perfect. The more networking events you attend and general networking activity you do, the more confident you will become both in yourself and what you are saying to people.

There are some, like Rachael Bews, who are born with a natural talent for networking and possess all the required skills to be successful in networking. Myself and Rachael went through university together and graduated at the same time and she is now a Marketing, Communications and Editorial Freelancer. Check out her brilliant website here.

As she is so gifted in this area, I thought she would be the perfect person to ask a few questions and hopefully provide anyone who is anxious about networking with some help and encouragement.

In the video below I ask Rachael 5 key questions about networking:

1. What is networking?
2. What are the benefits of networking?
3. Are there any particular industries where networking is considered essential?
4. What role does social media have in networking?
5. What are your top 5 tips for networking?

Check the video below to see what she says...

Herald Online Fashion Awards

 
 

On Sunday night I attended the first ever Herald Online Fashion Awards, which as the name suggests, celebrates Scottish talent in the online fashion world.

I was lucky enough to be attending the awards as one of the 11 finalists and was shortlisted for the Scottish Online Fashion Graduate of the Year award. Unfortunately it was not my night and didn't win. However, I am so proud to have been shortlisted and named a finalist.

The awards ceremony was held in Glasgow and was hosted by Scottish model, Eunice Olumide. The night started with a drinks reception - which of course we missed because we were still getting ready!

However, we did make it in time for the catwalk show from Debenhams and Scotland Re:Designed, which showcased some of the most talented designers coming out of Scotland at the moment. Then came the awards presentation... which I have to admit, I was very nervous for. See below a list of the categories and winners:

BEST USE OF ONLINE MARKETING:
Tens 
PRE-LOVED ONLINE RETAILER OF THE YEAR:
The Glasgow Vintage Co
BEST ONLINE NEWCOMER:
The Brotique 
BLOGGER OF THE YEAR FOR SCOTLAND:

Iain MacDonald
BEST FASHION TWITTERARTI:
Scot Street Style
PEOPLE'S CHOICE AWARD:
Common People Clothing
BEST SCOTTISH INDEPENDENT ONLINE RETAILER:
Isolated Heroes
SCOTTISH ONLINE RETAILER OF THE YEAR:

So I may not have won, but I did have a brilliant night experiencing the best of what Scotland has to offer in the online fashion world right now, and as they say, there is always next year!
