The Creative Networking monthly lunches are a great chance to meet and network with local businesses, you can arrive from 11.30am to network informally before the event officially kicks off at 12noon.
The venue offers an 'All You Can Eat' pizza, pasta and salad buffet (please let me know if you have any allergies / food requirements) included in the £10 networking price.
The layout for the networking event is really simple, it's like a 'slowed down' speed networking. Each person gets 10minutes with another person and when the alarm sounds (the glass is tapped) you move onto the next person and start again.
Ten minutes allows you to really get to know the other person well and build up a relationship with them, the event continues for two hours with gaps to refill your plate with more delicious food.
This venue holds a maximum of 100 so feel free to tell your friends, colleagues, clients and other businesses.

When & Where
I run the Creative Content Company, dealing with small to medium businesses on a regular basis has helped me understand the everyday problems that companies face.
I have been to many different breakfast networking events and they have all had benefits but there have been large membership costs or I have been seeing the same people every week.
I started 'Creative Networking' with dreams of bringing small businesses together to network with other businesses, teach people how to network and not to sell sell sell and to have some really great guest speakers too that we can all learn from and be inspired by.
I hope, in time that we can join together to afford stands at large business exhibitions, we can club together to organise charity fundraisers and create opportunites for our own businesses.
Come along to Creative Networking and meet a great bunch of people.
