South Manchester Enterprise Network - Creative Networking Session
Encouraging an Effective Working Relationship Within SMEN
Contact hosted the latest South Manchester Enterprise Network (SMEN) bi-monthly meeting and our Creative Experts demonstrated their creative skills to help energise some debate.
Using an exercise called 'Where Do You Stand?' the Experts gave participants the opportunity to raise the topics that were pertinent to the networking group and to hear the views of colleagues, building understanding and consensus. Particularly effective in exploring hopes and fears, the exercise was a fun and simple way to see the range of opinion within any group, even allowing opportunity to ‘voice’ your opinion without saying a word.
The aim was to get the group to think about improving the network to make it more effective and encourage different organisations to work more closely together.
SMEN is made up of a number of organisations and businesses with a shared goal to support each other in order to focus on job creation, work placements, business-to-business support & mentoring and skills training.
