    Topic - The Impact Of Your Decision-Making & Interaction Needs

    Synopsis:

    Decision-making is frequently seen as a process - you start at the beginning and wend your way to a final decision. The process is only one aspect; individual thinking patterns and interaction needs will determine how we take decisions, and identify the impact this is likely to have. If we are motivated we can build on our decision-making strengths and manage our worst excesses.

OUR NEXT EVENT

Thursday 4th April

Pinewood on Wilmslow, 12 noon - 2.00pm

What members and guests say

"The Business Network South Manchester has undoubtedly facilitated steady growth in my business during the last year whilst increasing the number of invaluable contacts within my networking circle and I'm confident this will continue through into 2012. Your meetings are always well structured, productive and uplifting - what more could you ask of networking? I would not hesitate to recommend The Business Network South Manchester to all my associates and wish you continued, and much deserved, success in the coming year. "

"Not only does Business Network make sense financially, it's a huge asset to business owner/managers and the 'lonely at the top' syndrome. There's a huge wealth of knowledge and regional business information within the South Manchester branch, high quality businesses and a tangible community feel about the whole group. If I need a contact or expert advice, or if I'm struggling with something, there?s always someone I can call and get a result. When you're running your own business, being able to access that support and 'business intelligence' is invaluable. So for me, South Manchester Business Network isn't just a professional networking group; it's a natural extension of my own business."
