The Power of Your Network – How to Accelerate & Sustain Growth
Presenter: Sally Curtis
Did you know that 87% of business sits in your network of connections untapped?
We are all busy, many of us feel isolated, if we are a business owners or a leaders in an organisation is easy to feel all alone. Think you are the only one with ‘this or that’ challenges or problems which at times look insurmountable.
Humans naturally want to contribute, connect & collaborate, we have just forgotten how to start these conversations because we can’t see the steps to the right people or key connections.
The Value of YOUR Network
A strategic network both supports & challenges you to be more. It helps you gain influence, broaden expertise, learn new skills, find purpose and balance.
The new way to Network is to know how to Network, the Networks!
By knowing who you have access too and what help is truly available to you build confidence and resourcefulness.
Seeing WHO you have at your fingertips is the easiest way to overcome common challenges, problem-solving efficiently, generate leads, gaining more referrals and grow your business, the organisation or be a fast start up!
What you will Learn
It takes very little time to move from an Accidental Network to Strategic Network, however the results are enormous!
It starts with,
- Defining – Who you have in your network
- Clarifying – Which of the 3 groups of connection do they fit into
- Magnify – Asking the right Key question
This is how you accelerate your growth!
Sally will share some tips and insights on how to SEE all the opportunities and resources sitting, hidden in plain sight from you.
Plus 3 stories/case studies that demonstrate how easy it can be for you with just little insight and a new perspective.

How your business can benefit by growing Cultural Intelligence.
Pamela Murphy’s qualifications include Intercultural Studies, Management and HR Management. She is a certified executive coach and an Advanced CQ (Cultural Intelligence) Professional with the highest level of CQ certification available from the Cultural Intelligence Center, Michigan, USA. The growth and development of CQ (Cultural Intelligence) is foundational to Pamela’s practice.

She has been a panellist for UniSA Business School, the Asia Pacific Business Council for Women and speaker at the Australian Defence Alliance inaugural SME summit in 2019.
Negotiating a pathway through complex cultural issues can be daunting and lead to misunderstandings and loss of business relationships, opportunities and productivity.
Research shows that a staggering 70% of the international ventures that fail are due to such cultural misunderstandings. In Australia, professionals in agribusiness, wine, water, tourism and education, as well as local and regional government bodies are facing an overwhelming new challenge.
Organisations assessing and developing cultural intelligence (CQ) are experiencing many important outcomes including.
- More effective cross-cultural adjustment
- Enhanced job performance
- Improved personal well-being
- Increased profitability
Come along and hear how you and your business can benefit from growing cultural intelligence(CQ) capability, examples of how cultural values and interpreting culture really do impact the way we communicate and do business, how we build trust and what’s important in the process.
