We’ve all heard the saying “It’s not what you know, but who you know.” Well, we think what we know really does matter, but there’s a lot to be said for building a thriving professional network as well. This is why we’re so excited to highlight our most recent HQ Direct travel opportunity, a trip to the Gold Coast for a conference.
Jarrod, President of HQ Direct, took a few members of the firm to network and meet new people at this national event. We place a large emphasis on providing a number of contacting opportunities for our crew, as this allows them the chance to learn from those we don’t have consistent interactions with while also reminding us just how valuable our in-office mentors are.
It’s easy to stop listening to the good advice of people we see on a regular basis, but when we frequently travel and connect with other business leaders in our industry, we are more inclined to keep an open mind. This means that we learn from those we meet, implementing their knowhow into our work back home, while also being reminded to appreciate the experts we work next to as well.
We had a great time out on the Gold Coast, and we’re already looking forward to our next networking adventure. Check out our HQ Direct Newswire feed to see where we’re heading next.
