Get in the loop – join Pathable!

When it comes to networking events, the obvious advice would be to “keep the smartphone in your pocket”. However, we advise that you download Pathable and keep the smartphone out! Pathable is an app which allows you to connect and arrange meetings with attendees prior to the event. You can build new relationships whilst closing deals with existing ones.

Be sure to check it out on iOS and Android, and start arranging your all-important meetings now.

Think outside the box

Whilst it’s efficient to plan out your meeting schedule, some of the best meetings happen in the most unexpected places – over a coffee, in the lift, or even over a drink or two! Be open to meeting potential partners at any given moment in any place – sometimes the best people are the ones you aren’t expecting to meet.
