I'm sure you are wondering why we are starting yet another networking event! "Aren't there already way too many?" I can hear you say ...
Well….We asked a number of our networking friends to tell us what they liked and didn’t like about the networking meetings they attended.
Most enjoyed meetings where there was time for one to ones, but didn’t want to sit through all those elevator pitches that were almost never heard, let alone remembered.
Some objected to paying large amounts to join networking groups where the focus of the group was first: Get more paying members, and second: Network.
Many liked it when there was time to freely chat to those people they wanted to connect with, but also wanted some structure and focus.
All agreed that networking is about business, although some saw it as a great a social event as well!
Some (ok, just us then..?) didn’t want to get up at the crack of dawn but we did like networking over a meal.
We wanted a networking session where there was real business, real referrals, with people we really liked and trusted, at a decent time of day, potentially with a meal and no subscriptions.
So, we figured that a networking group that provided all of the above AND was specifically for those businesses who did business with other businesses (for those who don't understand what B2B stands for) would be a worthwhile thing to start!
Does any of this resonate with you?
If so, how would you like to join Arjan and Gayle every first Friday of the month in Ripley, and perhaps later on join the mastermind group too?
Cost: There is no charge for the venue. Order and pay for your own lunch, plus £5 for unlimited coffee / tea.
