Networking & General Events

Connecting with others is a skill that once learnt can be instrumental in opening up new opportunities, helping individuals and organisations to develop and grow.

At Devon Business & Education Centre, we want to provide opportunities for new and experienced business people and educators to expand their networks and make new contacts.  In the inspiring location of DBEC, networking is informal, engaging and value driven.

One of our Partners is the 373 Group a business networking group that was founded by Tom Hope and Chris Lorimer with a view to help local businesses become successful through "friendship, collaboration and knowledge".

"He's a natural salesman!"

"High in confidence, usually misplaced - she should be in sales"

Too often sales people are tarred with the "sales" brush, pidgeon-holed as shallow, inauthentic, even dishonest!  But what's the truth?  In this 373 Group event, sales expert Richard Palmer of Suretrain Sales Training exposes the myths and explores what it takes to win new clients consistently.

This event is open to all and is ideal for anyone new to the SW or who is looking to establish new contacts and develop new skills.
