Phil graduates from ABN Networking Academy


Our Financial Services Director, Phil Anderson, has become one of the first to graduate from The Aberdeen Business Network Networking Academy. Commenting on the award Phil said: “The Networking Academy is a great way of further developing your business development and communication skills.”

Award-winning entrepreneur Andrew Smith is ABN director – who also look after the 4,000 plus member website: The ABN Networking Academy launched earlier this year aiming to help members become more effective at business networking on online platforms as well as offline.

Andrew said: “It follows a 10-stage programme designed to help members develop their skills. This includes networking events, training workshops, a networking audit, practical experience and one-on-one assessment. “The initial feedback has been excellent.”

Judith MacDonald, of Contempo Property, graduated alongside Phil. She said: “I’ve found the structure of the programme to be very beneficial in helping me become a more effective networker. I’d definitely recommend it to others.”
