We started with snow, then everyone arrived and I, Kate finally did the 10 minute presentation with a display of all 4 animations, first time shown all together. I received a round of applause and then talked about connecting H2H and Know, Like and Trust, following on about things you did not know about me, things you should and the qualities of my clients, how we match up and fit together.
This is a fairly relaxed group where we are able to talk around the room about our businesses and something unusual for the month.
We had a varied selection of people and businesses including a marketing company, Business directory, business support/Zero, financial advisor, Video company and Video Director, Audi cars, websites company, design, branding and stress/loss specialist who can help men and women cope and understand Menopause – Health and Wellbeing in the workplace.
Next month Will Kintish is treating us to a talk about ‘The Power of the Question”- March 18th @10.30am.
Fox Networking started in May 2019. The main reasoning behind it was that we had a super new studio with lots of creative space, I was not able to network with more than a handful of people due to migraines and noise level, many people in the building did not really know what each other did, and it was a good way to meet our neighbours. I found the original message below!
Now we talk about Columbian Coffee and Cream Cakes, comments like…. relaxed, no pressure, structured yet informal, warm welcome and well looked after are a few of the comments received.
This event has now taken on a life of its own, we are not in competition with other events, as it is by invitation only, hence we don’t use Eventbrite, we now have a good mix from all different sectors and not always the usual ones found at events. We select by people and this gives a different feel. The first 6 months were free, but now we are charging a small cost to cover some of our costs, these do not even cover my time.
So why do I do it, well, many reasons, but it does give me total flexibility and am able to select different venues with other like-minded people, I just want to be a little bonkers and I do have 13 years of International Food & Beverage, senior management experience in 4/5* hotels, soooo it must be the veins….and we like decent coffee…it just smells so welcoming.
