Our arrival is from 9.30am so no early starts and it allows plenty of time for ladies who may have to conduct the school run. The first half hour is informal networking over refreshments and the meeting commences officially at 10am so don’t stress if you are running late.
The organiser will announce the latest news to the group and initiate the one minute introductions around the room. These are conducted in a relaxed and informal manner so that everyone feels comfortable. We ask that you pitch only one business so that ladies can retain the information and see you as the go to person for that business. We find this is the most effective way to get your message remembered.
A ten minute presentation is given by a peer from within the group. We do not allow external organisations to present to our members at local networks. These networks are for the benefit of the members within in them and to gain and pass as much business between the group.
There is plenty of time to “carry on networking” until we close at 11.30am. We ask that visitors bring business cards.
