Life Compass Consulting
Life Coach Consulting is a career and performance coaching business for groups and individuals. Founder and entrepreneur Lisa Cox approached the University of Chester to develop her business skills through specialists masterclasses and workshops. Lisa comments:
The workshops I have attended have all been extremely useful and delivered to a very high standard. I particularly enjoyed the masterclass on the Psychology of business networking. I have implemented some of the tips the presenter shared, and feel the session has been helpful in allowing me to strengthen my network, and secure new business contracts.
One of the key tips outlined at the session was the importance of building a relationship with potential customers and showing an interest in their business. I put this into practice at the Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) annual conference. My conversations with stall holders and delegates all centred on the other person’s job role, company and areas of interest. I only shared details of my company and its activities once I was asked. This approach resulted in me having 15 follow up phone calls or email exchanges to explore potential areas of collaboration. I wouldn’t have been able to achieve this without the support from the University of Chester and the ERDF funded Cheshire and Warrington Business Growth Programme.
