Bluntly, it means acquiring knowledge and fee-paying work.
In practical terms, it means Building Your Professional Network. It means connections. It means Relationship Building.
Many think that Networking is about standing in a crowded room with a glass of wine in hand hoping to pick up some work. Maybe it is. In fact, part of it is. But we think that true effective Networking is something much bigger and a major and vital part of our everyday life. At Devonshire House, we have our own way of understanding, interpreting and actioning Networking.

Senior Professionals join Devonshire House for a range of reasons – mostly commercial. A nicety that reflects our style is this quaint mantra –
“We are all open for business but being spotted selling is seen as bad manners”!
It’s about relationship-building.
