What is networking?


Networking means many different things to different people.


However, essentially the aim is generally to build long-term relationships, meet new people and provide ideas for business growth.


Why should I do it?


Networking is an essential part of doing business. No-one can work in a vacuum - networking helps you to build your reputation, work effectively in a team and can facilitate future business planning.


Whilst you are a professional, your role extends beyond just the technical side of being a Chartered Surveyor.


What happens if I don’t enjoy networking?


Networking doesn’t just have to be limited to the traditional ‘meet and greet’ or ‘business breakfast’ events.


Joining CREation provides a modern, innovative way of networking, with benefits such as:

  • Exciting events held every quarter on current property 'hot topics'

  • Events won't be your usual CPD - expect fun interactive sessions and discussions

  • Additional networking and socialising events

  • Meet new people in similar situations

  • Build your own network by interacting with graduates from a range of companies across the industry from competitor to client

  • Events will be held at various locations

  • Each event will include an informal networking session


It doesn’t matter if you don’t know anybody, although it can make it easier if you take a colleague or friend along. You never know who you might meet!


How can it help me with my APC?


All of the soft skills you can develop by joining CREation are essential components of the RICS APC and AssocRICS mandatory competencies.


They will also help you to become a better Chartered Surveyor with an inspiring career ahead of you.
