As someone who travels occasionally from outside Aberdeen but with visibility across Scotland, it’s been a delight to see how TBC has grown over the last 18 months.

Picture the Scene: A potential client calls your company. You’re out of the office. After staying on the telephone while listening to a recording, they hang up and dial your competitor. You have just witnessed a classic marketing disaster. This lost client needed your services so much that he attempted to personally contact you! In the meantime, your precious dollars in advertising, education, training and state-of-the-art equipment continue to be under-utilized.

Now if you want to take this to another level you can create the reason to bring people together. I’m a big believer in making you the “connective hub” by hosting dinners, experiences and events. Think of it as creating a ‘sandbox’ for exceptional individuals to connect together. In fact, that’s one of the reason I started my own network of entrepreneurs called Maverick1000. We’ve done everything from fly MiG jets in Russia to build self-sustaining villages in Haiti. These shared unique or intense experiences actually accelerate business deals coming together and so many members eager to help each other. When I meet someone, I am always consciously thinking about who in my existing network can help them. However, you don’t need to go this far. Just hosting a regular dinner is a way to get people together. Encourage guests to bring one remarkable friend or colleague and you’ve now increased your own network. Don’t over think it. When you put smart people in the room together you don’t need to do much. Finally, all of these insights only work if you genuinely want to connect to someone without keeping score or worrying about what can you get from them this very moment. I like to invest in relationships that could last for decades. That means not trying to amass all the benefits instantly. And that counts for business transactions too. I like to ensure the other person has a bigger win than I do so they never feel like I got a better deal. That might happen once but it won’t happen for years and years. To me, the best connections come from deepening ties that build over time. – This is a guest blog and may not represent the views of Virgin.com. Please see virgin.com/terms for more details.

Some of my favourite connections have come way outside of business. It might be out of charities I support, sports teams I play on or any other kind of hobby. There’s truly a different kind of connection formed with a common interest first, and business second. Please use this as permission to free yourself from activities you think you need to do in order to meet the right potential clients or connections. If you hate golf – stop hanging out at the country club!
