Now that's you've decided to attend some business coaching events, the next step is to find the events that are right for you and your business. Before you attend an event, you should think about what you're hoping to get out of it, is it an opportunity for learning, networking or generating leads? Afterwards, you should objectively assess whether or not the time you spent was worthwhile and you'll soon learn which events are valuable and which are not.

Here are some tips to help you choose the business coaching events that will be the most valuable for you to attend:

  • Industry specific events are a great way to get industry specific knowledge and learn from other business owners who may have different ideas and perspective to your own.
  • Events for your target market are events that you should attend. You'll have the opportunity to introduce yourself and your services, promote your business to potential customers and learn more about your target market and the things they want.
  • Events for industry leaders are an important part of learning. You should seek out events whereby you and your business are not the best in the room. Step out of your comfort zone because you can only learn from those who have more knowledge and experience than you.
  • Business coaching events are another fantastic way to learn ways to grow and improve your business. Consider attending Business Benchmark Group's M500 events to learn from industry leaders and network with other business owners.
