"Networking in Surrey is a real asset in planning my networking . Can't imagine what I'd do without it! " Dan Smale, The Client Factory (see 40+ more Members' feedback below in this column)
Following Government advice, the venues that host networking meetings will remain closed, effectively shutting down in-person meetings. Many groups are hurriedly introducing ONLINE meetings and we will list those we know of here on the site. There will inevitably be technical issues for groups moving to online, at least to begin with - please be patient, think positive, and let's
support each other!

Your Virtual Online Networking Hub...
For over 10 years Networking in Surrey (NiS) has provided a free resource helping local business people to optimise their networking activities.
We now have more than 2,300 local Members, and listed over 100 face-to-face meetings around the county each month - until now!
Now meetings are moving online, NiS is by default becoming a hub listing virtual events (mostly using the Zoom platform) run by groups that used to meet in person across Surrey.
There are logistical limitations on the numbers who can take part in such online networking meetings (as opposed to mass audience webinars). Typically we're seeing 25-30 participants given as the viable maximum for the format, and organisers are giving their existing subscribed members priority booking rights.
[6 APRIL ZOOMUPDATE: In response to unwanted Visitors (Zoom-Bombers) you may now need a password and be admitted by the Zoom Meeting Host]
How this will all pan out in practice remains to be seen, but I shall be monitoring the situation closely, and providing up-to-date information via the site and social media to support all our NiS Members and site users.
Good luck! #rainbowsmile
