Akashic Ventures explore the importance of building strong professional relationships in a short period
The sales and marketing experts Akashic Ventures recently held a workshop, where they discussed the importance of creating meaningful business relationships. The workshop delved into the psychology behind first meetings and explained why making good first impressions is essential in business. By hitting the ground running with a good first impression one can set the president for the rest of that relationship. Research suggests that the term “you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover” does not seem to apply to business where relationships and new opportunities can often be decided on first impressions. A harsh reality that Akashic Ventures believe must be made clear to their contractors.
This week they have focused their business development workshops on this topic, giving their contractors a crash course on “the art of building relationships in a short space of time”. They split the session into two halves the first focusing on body language and the second on verbal interactions.
Four essential tips were given with regards to body language:
Smile with your eyes
Use touch wisely
Mirror their body language
The second half focused on verbal interactions with Aaron Passley giving his three top tips for good things to say during a first interaction:
Listen first speak later
Ask open ended questions
Speak in a positive manner
Akashic Ventures hope that their contractors will take on these tips, as they believe they are essential for professional growth but more importantly performance in the field. The ability to build a relationship with someone in a short space of time generates a trust between contractor and client that makes a sale more likely.
Moving forward Akashic Ventures believe that these tips will help their business thrive, as their contractors look to improve themselves and in turn help push the business forward.
