Businesses in West Wiltshire - networking

Well House Manor - from the conference buffet rangeYesterday evening, we ran our first Speed Networking event of the year at Well House Manor. Over two one-hour sessions, each of 20 companies attended got to meet the other 19 companies who were with us, moving around the tables every five minutes. I find it a very educational excerise to provide an overview of what I do in just under 2 minutes - but it can be done ... and that leaves a couple of minutes for the companies to say "is it worth getting together later" - networking objective achieved!

It can be quite tiring networking with group after group - so the evening is split by a buffet supper - served last night by Chris and Sarah, and thoroughly enjoyed by the businesses attending. We had taken a considered decision not to serve free glasses of alcohol on this occasion - but rather we had a selection of fizzy and still soft drinks, tea and coffee, and they were enjoyed by all - with all being fresh and ready for the second (8 p.m. to 9 p.m.) session.


Business Networking at Well House ManorI was "Master of Ceremonies" for the evening; clearly a very good and productive time was being had by all, as I had to go into "Town Crier mode" - i.e. loud - to get people to move on.

And - look at this picture 20 minutes after the finish according to the clock - where people were moving around and spending longer networking long after the "round robin" had concluded. And this morning, my email box has been busy with questions and follow ups. Truly, a fruitful evening - and many thanks to Christine for organising all those busy business people to coma along!

The next Speed Networking Evening will be on Wednesday, 16th July 2008. Please email us if you're a business in the West Wiltshire area and we'll be delighted to have you along. There's a charge of £15.00 per business - £20.00 if you have two representatives - including the networking and the buffet.
