See 3 Effective Networking Tips Every Business Owner Needs To Know


When it comes time to networking, some business owners struggle with that end of the spectrum. It doesn’t come easy to everyone and that’s why the Internet is great and reading this blog post will be great. Oh I almost forgot the Internet is also great for learning about the best popcorn kernels.
Going forward you will learn about some key tips to help network your business and how to carry on networking your business down the road.
Remember, you can’t reach out once and think that your business is going to take off- it might and you would be very lucky but most businesses need to keep up with their network in order to be successful. It’s fun and you could help others out just like they will help you!
Create A Pitch
It’s important as a business owner to be prepared and know what you are talking about. Understand the concept of networking and how interacting with other likeminded individuals will pay off down the road.
When creating an elevator pitch , it’s basically knowing off the bat- who you are, what your business is all about, how you can help as a business owner and what your business values.
This pitch should take no longer than one minute. You basically have one minute to explain to a new client or customer how great your business is. The worst thing that could happen is a new client asks you a question about your business and you don’t have the answers too.

Of course it depends on the complexity of the questions, but if you know your business from top to bottom like most business owners do, than networking and coming to terms with a good pitch should not be a problem.
Trade Shows & Business Conferences
AMPER International Trade Fair, Romanian Business Exchange
Attending trade shows and business conferences is another great way to get yourself out there and surround yourself with other like minded folks. It’s all about making good connections and putting yourself in a place with other entrepreneurs, will allow you to communicate business.
Investing in a booth at a trade show is great too because it shows that you are a serious business owner. It will allow you to showcase your business and give you a chance to speak about it to others who are interested.
Business Cards

 

As a business owner, the one important thing you should never leave home or the office without is a stack of business cards. You never know who you will run into and might need your products or services. Also as part of networking, you should get use to talking to as many people as you can and slowly transition into what it is that you do.
If you attend a business conference or a trade show it’s essential that you have enough business cards to hand out to thousands of people that might stop by!
Business cards have your contact information so people can get ahold of you and find your location. If you do not have a business card for your business I would recommend getting some made quick.
You can make your own business cards online and I would recommend ‘Vistaprint’ for good templates and fast shipping! You can also buy cups and pens and other branded merchandise for your company as well. Why not give away some pens with your brand on them at the trade show? It’s all up to you how you want to differentiate yourself from your competitors.

Mascot Uzor-Kalu​ Charges Youths to Engage in skill Acquisition and Training

A prominent Investment Banker and Former Chief of Staff to the Abia State Governor, Chief Mascot Uzor Kalu has advised youths across the country to develop their potentials through engaging appropriate training channels. He made this remark during one of his mentorship sessions where he said that Nigeria is a land of immense opportunities. He told those at the gathering that everyone has an equal right to aspire for the top but that it requires training and preparation to get there. He called on them to consider areas such as Agriculture, Information Technology, Commerce and other viable industries.

In his remarks, he advocated that the institutions of higher learning have their place but people must take personal responsibility for their lives. He reminded the youths that some of the leading minds in the world such as Bill Gates and Steve Jobs were products of personal development. He charged the youths to take advantage of unique platforms to build their latent skills while tapping into the emerging windows in today’s world to create profitable businesses.

‘’The current perennial malaise in the education sector does not mean that youths should fold their hands till Universities are re-opened. You can count this as a blessing in disguise by seeking for alternatives that can help to advance your dreams. With the immense opportunities in the area of information technology, there is no limit to what anyone can do in today’s world.’’

Chief Mascot Uzor Kalu said that the economic relations that Nigeria has with many countries of the world mean that we can create goods and even ideas that can be profitably exported. He stated that the time of giving excuses for failure and redundancy is gone. He mentioned that it is only those who are able to see the future that can take the appropriate steps to get there.

Also, he reminded the youths that – ‘’Many of the great nations were built by the tireless engagement of youths who were determined to make their country better than the way they met it. We have the golden opportunity to begin to dream great dreams and work at actualising them. I know that Nigeria has one of the highest numbers of human capital in the world. We can keep trading this advantage in order to properly re-position the country politically, socially, economically and in other areas.’’

He harped on his love for the youths and his commitment to see that they fulfill their potential. Chief Mascot reiterated the need for everyone in leadership to keep modelling noble ideals that the youths can emulate. He said that most young people can thrive once they get the deserved support from people they admire and look up to.

In a similar vein, he reiterated his desire for the industrial action taken by University authorities to be amicably resolved. He tasked the Federal Government to work at building lasting solutions that can restore dignity back to the education sector. He mentioned that Nigeria can imbibe the systems developed by countries that have some of the best institutions in the world.

He ended his charge with the famous words spoken by the Former Prime Minister of Great Britain, Sir Winston Churchill. The words were spoken during one of the most challenging seasons in their nation’s history; Great Britain at the time was in the middle of the World War. He said – ‘’Young Men, Never give up. Never never never. Never….Never!’’

PDP Financier Emeka Offor Is Broke, Shuts Down Company

The fall of the Peoples Democratic Party at the centre appears to have devastated the fortunes of several politically-connected businessmen who, as once suggested by former President Olusegun Obasanjo, mostly relied on the then-ruling party for government contracts.

One of such billionaire businessmen, Emeka Offor, has indicated that he is broke, just over two years after the PDP left power.

In the build-up to the 2003 general elections, Mr. Offor was reported to have donated N200 million to the Obasanjo/Atiku presidential re-election campaign. During the heat of the Obasanjo-Atiku feud in 2006, the Atiku Media Office in a statement by Garba Shehu, now President Muhammadu Buhari’s spokesperson, said a special account to finance the PDP presidential re-election bid in 2003 was managed by Mr. Offor.

Known for his interests in oil, gas, power and construction, the businessman and politician got juicy federal contracts, many barely executed, while the PDP reigned for 16 years.

But despite the massive wealth many Nigerians believed he amassed in profit from various contracts, Mr. Offor is now indicating he is broke, suggesting that his main cash cow, Chrome Oil, has suffered downturn since the coming of the All Progressives Congress to power in 2015, according to correspondences seen by PREMIUM TIMES.

Some staff members of the company, in a letter written on their behalf by their lawyer, Femi Falana, say they are being owed N1.14 billion, representing outstanding salaries and wages between September 2016 and August 2017.

They also accused Mr. Offor of failing to remit their tax and pension deductions, an act they described as unethical and criminal under our laws.
They demanded that “all pension deductions and contributions from July 2015 to August 31 2017 totalling N244,172,464.80 be remitted to their respective pension fund administrators,” the letter said.

Similarly, they demanded “that all PAYE tax deducted from staff payroll from July 2015 to August 2017 totalling N153,775,382.58 be remitted” to tax authorities.

Then, “that the sum of N579,219,429.5 being the disengagement benefits” of the staff as at end of August 2017 be paid to their respective bank accounts.

But Mr. Offor blamed the “general economic meltdown and recession” for his company’s inability to meet its financial obligations to employees, saying his “businesses suffered frustration commencing from March 2015 and grounded to a halt in September 2015”.
Mr. Offor said the company had “no job to execute and closed office starting from September 2015”.
The PDP-led government left power in May 2015 after losing elections held in April.
Before PDP

While he started out in business with governments years before the PDP came to power, Mr. Offor got some of his most lucrative contracts under the PDP. He also became one of the party’s top financiers.
Under the Sani Abacha military junta in the 1990s, Mr. Offor’s Chrome Group was offered the contract for the Turn Around Maintenance of the Port Harcourt refinery. About that time, he led the Movement for National Stability to campaign for the late dictator’s ultimately futile bid to transmute to a civilian leader.

Reflecting on the condition of Nigeria’s refineries and Mr. Offor’s link, Mr. Obasanjo told PREMIUM TIMES in August 2015 that nothing came of the purported work done by the businessman, despite being paid.

“I explained that what I met were refineries that were not working, refineries that were given to an amateur for repairs, for maintenance, what they call turn around maintenance to the company of Emeka Offor – Chrome Group,” said Mr. Obasanjo.

“Where has Emeka Offor maintained refineries before? Where has he? That’s what we met. So, the

No Investor Can Invest His Funds in Abia, Dr. Enyinna, Investment Expert

A businessman and Chairman Fundvine securities and investment group ltd, Dr. Michaeal Kasarachi Enyinna has decried the decay in infrastructure and lack of basic and necessary amenities required to make businesses and investments grow in Abia state.

Speaking to newsmen in Umuahia on Sunday during the Eid Mubarak holidays ,Dr.Enyinna expressed surprise at the state of infrastructure in Abia inspite of all the funds that has been credited to the state from the federation account within the past two years in the life of Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu administration.

In his words I was shocked seeing the huge decay in infrastructure which has seriously slowed down businesses and killed investments in the state, he expressed shock that the governor is yet to embark on serious infrastructural repairs in the state and that all he had seen in Abia especially aba is nothing but paying lip service to duty.

He decried the governor’s unseriousness to duty and wondered how he expects any investor to invest his funds in a dying and unstable economy as we have it in Abia today.

Dr Enyinna said he was surprised that while states like Ebonyi, Anambra, cross river etc. are advancing in infrastructure and investors are trooping in, what we see in Abia is hunger, decay in infrastructure especially roads, insecurity, kidnapping, robbery etc. he advised the governor to cut short his overseas jamboree, tagged investment hunt, come home and concentrate on developing the enabling environment needed to attract investors, he said, what woos investors is the business environment and not preaching or smooth talking, he added that no serious investor both local and international will invest in Abia because the investment environment is lacking.

The security and investment expert, who hails from Ukwa, said he supported Okezie Ikpeazu PhD, during the elections believing that he will grow the state from where he met it, but unfortunately all that he had seen in every sector is depreciation and decay, he advised the governor to pay salaries and embark on road reconstruction across the state.

He went ahead to advise Ikpeazu that if he fails to improve on service delivery which at the moment is lacking, he should also forget coming back to 2019 to ask for votes as no Abian will vote for a man who could not pay salaries or improve the much needed infrastructure.

As the President, I led members of Online Media Practitioners AMPON to a tour of Dr. Uche Sampson Ogah’s Multi Billion Dollars Industrial Estate in Abia State on Saturday August 19.
Friends, What I saw was mindblowing; am yet to recover from the shock.
I wept for my state Abia. How can we have such personalities with the ‘magic wand’ and yet allow those who have no business being in government to occupy our government house and run the state down like this?
It’s a shame!
It will not be well for those who stole Ogah’s mandate and gave it to these misfits, who have no vision, no direction, no love for the people but re only driven by greed.
May Chukwu Okike Abiama Deliver his people.
Friends, we need more people like Ogah in Abia and Biafra Land.
The Online Media Giants present during the tour included:

Eminike Iroegbu of Abia Facts News has this to say:
 
Yesterday, Abia State Online Media Practitioners paid Dr. Uchechukwu Sampson Ogah a media visit.
 
During the visit, he took us on a tour round his Masters Energy Group Industrial Complex located in his hometown Onuaku, Uturu in Isuikwuato Local Government Area.
 
I was personally amazed at the facilities inside this complex, this industrial complex has more than 20 factories inside at the moment and Dr. Ogah said it is just the first phase, he said this complex is of five phases.
 
Most of us were amazed because we had already walked for above 3 hour touring what he called the first phase, this means if the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th phases come alive the tour will surely be for two days or more.
 
From Masters Noddles to Masters Plastics, from Masters PVCs to Masters Organic Fertilizer, From Masters Tricycle Line to Masters Engine Oil Plant and a lot others.
 
Indeed, Ogah is an industrial Master.. Guess what, he from Isuikwuato and I am from Isuikwuato, so he is my nwanneukwu.
 
Before I forget, we had a great lunch together with my team. It seems even the cooks in Masters kitchen are also Masters in cooking.
 
Ndewo.

According to the Nigerian Shippers Council, Kaduna State Chapter, it is expected that about 300, 000 people will get direct jobs from the Kaduna Inland Dry Port in a few years to come.

Our correspondent observes that the port is fully equipped to handle more than 29,000 containers per annum, and agents can legitimately take delivery of their imported cargoes and as well as forward their export goods directly to various countries abroad without hindrances
Already, Nigerian Customs and other relevant agencies now operate at the port having been provided with well-equipped office accommodation within the premises to enhance trade facilitation and reduce turnaround time.

It is sad Nigeria still imports apple, cucumber, toothpicks – CBN governor, Emefiele

​The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has blamed the ongoing economic recession in Nigeria on overdependence on importation of goods from other counties.

Emefiele said it was shameful that Nigeria still imported items such as apple, cucumber and eggs from South Africa, beef from Zambia and toothpicks from China.

He, however, assured Nigerians that the country will move out of the current recession before the end of the year.

CBN governor, Mr. Godwin Emefiele, spoke at the weekend while delivering a lecture entitled: “The Dilemma of Monetary Policy and Exchange Rate Management in a Recession: Potential Options for Nigeria,” at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN).

He explained that he was optimistic that with all the interventions of the Federal Government, the CBN and other authorities, “the country will be out of recession before the end of 2017.”

According to Emefiele who graduated from the University: “In January 2017, inflation was 18.8 per cent, it is now down to 16.24 per cent. Last quarter, which was fourth quarter of 2016 growth, was negative 1.72 per cent. First quarter of 2017 growth had improved to negative 1.52 per cent.

“What that means is that we have an improvement in growth by about 1.2 per cent. If we see another 1.2 per cent growth in the second quarter we are out of recession.”

He noted that with the enthusiasm shown by the Federal Government in the area of agriculture, “with support for local farmers and private sector investments in agriculture, I believe that barring any other shock the prices of foodstuff in the markets will come down.”

“In those good days the South East and South South were known for palm oil, the South West for cocoa and the North for groundnut but with the advent of oil we abandoned agriculture.’’

The CBN boss noted that the idea of importing all that the country consumes was responsible for the current recession. “How do we justify the importation of items like apple, cucumber and eggs?’’from South Africa; beef from Zambia and toothpicks from China?

“These are items we can locally produce and used money in importing these items to beef up local industries that will in turn create employments for our youths.

“We must take cognizance of the fact that imports are leakages to every economy.” The CBN governor said the apex bank was aware of the pains Nigerians are going through as a result of the economic recession and said this is the opportunity needed to look inward to diversify the economy and come out of the recession stronger.
