We run a lunchtime networking group in Peterborough one Friday a month. This is the newest networking group we run and it is proving to be very popular.
For some people morning networking just doesn’t work for them. It may be they are not early morning people, or perhaps they have school runs, their business or job dictates that they need to be in early amongst other things that take up their time in mornings.
This was why we set up Connect Business Networking “Let’s Do Lunch” events in Peterborough; for people like that.
Our lunchtime networking event in Peterborough starts at 12.30pm, at The Marriott Hotel in Peterborough. Group members and guests arrive from 12.15pm onwards to network informally with other networkers before the event begins.
Each networking guest and member then gets a chance to introduce themselves and their business in 45 seconds. This is the opportunity for each person to tell the room what they do, how they do it and the types of clients or customers that they are looking for.
Then attendees are each given a card with a number and matched at random with other people in the room. This is the 10 minute 1-2-1’s giving those in the room to get to know each other better, but also gain a better understanding of their business so they can refer them to their contacts, clients and colleagues.
This is followed by a 2-course lunch, which is a delicious main meal followed by a really yummy dessert. (If you are attending as a guest and have any dietary requirements then please let us know in advance).
We then have a 10 minute spotlight talk by one of our members. This is an opportunity we give to our members so they can tell everyone in the room more about them and their business.
This spotlight talk is often filled with juicy tips and tricks of the trade to really help others in the room with their own business.
It is then time for our second random 1-2-1 of the networking event. This is another chance for members in the room to get to know each other better. Here at Connect Business Networking we strongly believe in know, like and trust. We encourage members to get to know each other better, so they like them more and trust them. Then they can recommend each other to their own circles of contacts.
At the end of the meeting we pass referrals, tracking any business done and recording how well the group is doing. In 2018 a huge £250,000 was passed between members of Connect Business Networking, and 2019 already looks set to beat this amount.
If you are looking for a lunchtime networking event in Peterborough where you can meet new business contacts, leads, clients and customers, a place where you can promote your business and you can gain expert knowledge and advice from others in the room then we highly recommend that you give Connect Business Networking “Let’s Do Lunch” events a try.
We look forward to welcoming you with a refreshing beverage and a smile soon...
