20 years enhancing companies’ networking opportunities

At Talent Lab, we're not just shaping networking proficiency; we're cultivating a culture of strategic relationship-building that propels businesses toward sustained success.
Our clients

Talent Lab’s Director Mark Herring has spent 20 years helping companies of all sizes and sectors ensuring their employees understand the potential that networking offers.

The challenge

Like every company, our clients meet potential routes to new business at formal and informal networking events, but most of their staff have had little or no training on how to actively use conversations as stepping stones to future new business opportunities.

How we helped

Talent Lab has helped various companies bring different teams together to take part in a networking training session. Each session is interactive and lively, with a focus on the specific needs of the company and this particular group of attendees. Over three hours, a Talent Lab networking training workshop breaks down the steps from contact to opportunity and by the end, each participant will be confident in starting – and finishing – conversations at any future event.

Programme options
  • Networking Masterclasses – for teams, departments and company employees who attend networking events as part of their roles
  • Networking MasterBlasts – for graduates and other new joiners just setting off on their chosen careers
  • Networking strategy – aligning a client’s brand, marketing, events and networking approach for maximum return
  • Team building and other events – using elements of our training for a fun evening that brings employees together to network.

Whilst companies focus marketing spend on their website, brochures and even attending industry conferences and exhibitions, staff receive little to no help on how to make the most from the people they meet when representing the business. Mark’s 20 years + of running Urbano Network has given him a unique perspective on how to ensure you get the best ROI from your investment in networking – Return On Introductions.

Attending the Networking MasterBlast was a game-changer for me as a recent graduate stepping into the professional world. Learning the techniques and advice from Talent Lab not only boosted my confidence but also opened my eyes to the power of meaningful connections that can shape and influence better results for everyone – and importantly, make the whole experience more enjoyable!
