CLIMB HIGH FOR SHEFFIELD
Learning a new skill and having fun are not usual qualities associated with local networking events - but two Sheffield-based companies are changing all that!
FunMeFit Ltd and Eclipse IPD Ltd are organising their second event at The Foundry Climbing Centre, Sheffield. They hope not only to encourage people to come together to foster links, develop business and help improve the community but also encourage attendees to give climbing a go. Many feel that climbing is a great ice breaker, personal development tool and a way to get active before work.
Kate Hill, Owner of FunMeFit Ltd said: “Climbing is such a great activity to make you feel positive for the day, get your heart pumping and is a fantastic skill to learn. I gave it a go at the previous climbing event and I found it challenging but saw that it brought everyone in the room together. After about 10 minutes, everyone was laughing and chatting about whether they could climb or not before getting on to share their businesses and interests. It’s a great ice breaker and an opportunity to get out of your suit and talk on a down-to-earth level.”
The event set for Tuesday 30th April 2013 between 8.15-10am at The Foundry Climbing Centre, Sheffield includes refreshments, entry fee and instructor training giving attendees the opportunity to try climbing.
Karl Bacon, Director of Eclipse IPD Ltd said: “We use climbing frequently as a way to develop interpersonal skills with a wide range of clients and with Kate, felt it would be a great activity to dovetail with a networking event.”
Tickets: £12 each - includes admittance, cost of climbing instruction, refreshments.
