You may have heard the popular saying, “more business gets done on the golf course than back at the office.” The popularity of business and golf coming together is a way of networking that more people are moving towards. It feels more personal, getting to know someone over a game of golf, rather than in a meeting room.
For business owners, networking is vital in building and maintaining strong relationships. Forming a business relationship takes time and loyalty goes a long way, so starting and maintaining trust and communication with potential clients or partners is an essential ingredient in the recipe for business success. The golf course can be a great environment to allow this to happen. You don’t need to be a professional golfer to enjoy a game; golf is a game that involves a lot of downtime, so it affords plenty of opportunity for quality conversation.
Here at Trapeze Recruitment, we love a game of golf and so much so, we’ve even sponsored a tee at St Augustines Golf Club in Cliffsend, Ramsgate! They pride themselves on being ‘Kent’s most welcoming Golf Club!’ We are extremely proud to sponsor this tee and we often network with like minded business people at St Augustine’s Golf Club.
“Golf is deceptively simple and endlessly complicated; it satisfies the soul and frustrates the intellect. It is at the same time rewarding and maddening – and it is without doubt the greatest game mankind has ever invented.” (Arnold Palmer)
If you would like to network with a difference and have a game of golf with Jo at Trapeze Recruitment, call 01843 210011 to arrange a time. Arnold Palmer was right; it is such a great game!
