What’s different about Opendoorz?
At Opendoorz we recognize the key to successful networking does not lie in volume, but in bringing together quality members with businesses of a similar calibre. We are unapologetic about the selective criteria we apply to potential members. The selection of each new member directly influences the business success of all the others and for this reason, will always be the cornerstone of our organization.
A key element of our application process will be an initial, face to face meeting before you join. This is an opportunity for you to probe us – and for us to get to know more about you, about your business and your expectations, so we can make sure Opendoorz is going to work for you.
The ambition we have for all our members is to make Opendoorz the backbone of their sales and marketing activity – to bring tangible results. Success will be measured by the quality rather than the quantity of introductions made and business resulting. A transparent system of recording this information will be accessible on the website to all members.
With networking, as with any other business investment, you need to weigh up the potential benefits against the outlay and decide if it makes sound commercial sense. So confident are we that Opendoorz will deliver significant results for your business, that we underpin membership with a unique promise that completely removes any risk to you.
With the format of each meeting varying slightly, there is a constant and continuous wave of fresh content, shared experiences, advice and professional updates. In addition, regular ‘spotlight’ sessions give members the opportunity to highlight specific introductions they’re looking for. These lead to serious connections that bring genuine new business opportunities – we expect these introductions to be a personal face-to-face contact, not via a slip of paper!
Monthly guest events are held to aid making these connections. Whilst membership is restricted to one representative from any profession in each group, we recognize the value of meeting others within the same business arena and embrace them at these events.
We recognise that members of truly effective networking groups are committed, highly motivated and regularly sharpen their business skills. Continuous professional development is essential and therefore included within our meetings. We also give members our ‘featured’ book every quarter to further expand their knowledge base.
Opendoorz believe emphatically that networking is integral to business growth and development – and that effective networking comes from building strong and meaningful relationships with quality businesses.
The success of the Opendoorz networking model is based on intelligent strategic planning that ensures the ideal membership blend and meeting content – getting this right means that the hard work and energy you expend is focused where it is most effective.
Quite simply, we’ll ensure you’re keeping the right company.
