Walk | Recharge | Grow
Business NetWalkers helps you improve your wealth and well-being whilst growing your network. It does this in 5 ways… enhancing mental performance and wellbeing, improving physical fitness, talking and collaboration with like-minded people, sharing knowledge and creating new connections.
1. Mental Performance and Well Being
Businesses are built by people who have enhanced cognitive ability and a strong level of creative thinking and resilience. Exercise is proven to enhance our mental well-being. The mental clarity that is created as you are rhythmically striding and talking affords you the much craved for headspace. Without mental effort you gain a fresh perspective on problems that have been occupying your mind.
NetWalking offers many aspects of creating your own enhanced well-being and plays its part in mastering the art of being human in business. The physical exercise releases feel good endorphins, there are the benefits of a period of time of enforced digital detox, shared experiences, social interactions and the time to reconnect and get closer to nature. All in all NetWalking creates a perfect recipe that works wonders for a healthier mind and wealthier business.
2. Physical Fitness
The human body is designed to move. Nowadays most office workers spend far too long sitting at their desks. Physical inactivity is dangerous for our health. Public Health England recognise physical inactivity is bad for us and recommend at least 2 hours activity of standing or walking each day. Even a short brisk walk of 10 minutes each day has been medically proven to reduce the risk of early death and lowers type 2 diabetes, heart disease, some cancers and dementia.
Working doesn’t mean you have to work long hours sitting. Discover a healthier way of working. Healthier and fitter people take less sick days and productivity is higher.
3. Talking and Collaboration
Business NetWalkers attract a diverse range of people, eager to walk and talk. From people who have just started in business to CEOs. We attract all ages, fitness levels and sectors. What we see is that walking creates a level place where people can talk and share experiences for mutual benefit. Away from the usual business environment and out in the great outdoors, people are naturally themselves and connect through deeper conversation creating wonderful and often unexpected opportunities.
4. Knowledge Sharing
We love to hear “I didn’t know that”. Human being thrive through curiosity, knowledge and learning. Often the lessons in business come from an unrelated activity or a chance conversation. Both are in abundance with Business NetWalks. Whether you are exploring in the remote hills, deep in a forest or immersed in a city, we make sure education happens easily and naturally – just like child’s play.
5. Networking and Creating Connections
Human beings crave face to face and social interaction. It wasn’t until the late 1970’s and early 1980’s that business networking groups started to show their face. Their sole purpose was to gain business. Business NetWalking brings a fresh, new approach to tired, unhealthy, old ways of networking. When you’re walking with fellow NetWalkers and offering a helping hand to cross a stream or simply walk side by side up or down steps, a deep, human connection is made which is far stronger and more powerful than any paper business card.
Being outside creates a different connection and dynamic and one that simply isn’t found in a hotel based network. Perceived barriers and feelings of intimidation melt away and irrespective of seniority nature is the greatest human leveller. If you’re new to networking, or a seasoned professional, why not try Business NetWalking for yourself?
In 2019 the Business NetWalkers walked over 595,000 steps improving mental performance, well being, physical fitness, knowledge sharing and growth in the business community.
