Be the centre of your local network
When you host a YENA event, you’re in the middle of it all – you’ll get an advantage to know what’s happening before everyone else, naturally, by knowing everyone and what’s going on. This can only ever mean more opportunities for you and your business.
Improve your personal brand & abilities
Hosting gives you great practice at trying out your public speaking & interviewing skills, adding more to your entrepreneurial CV. It also helps you improve your personal brand & awareness which often means hosts get booked for more talks and opportunities, as a result.
Being a YENA host means you’ll automatically have top-level membership in return for running events. This is currently worth over £6,000 per year – so it’s a really great benefit, for sure.
A competitive advantage
YENA gives you leverage you may not have had before – a socially conscious reason for reaching out to people [for speaking], complimenting them on their success and helping to build rapport. This means you can often strike up conversations with people who would otherwise be difficult to reach in a sales capacity. This can help you find larger clients, experienced mentors, high-level referrers and more opportunities.
