So much better than simply networking. Manchester's most generous business leaders gathering for two hours of inspiration, education and motivation in a fun and relaxed environment, with like-minded philanthropic professionals, all while we support a local cause - this month it's The River Manchester (http://www.therivermanchester.org.uk/).
The event will incorporate:
Presentations from NW experts on Business Coaching and Business Social Media:
Jo Casey (Coaching) has over 20 years experience working as a trainer and consultant in the corporate, public and third sectors with clients including Pricewaterhouse Coopers (PWC), The NHS, BT, Toyota Motors, Peugeot Business School, The Welsh Assembly Government, several Local Government Authorities and The Department Of Work And Pensions (DwP). But I’ve also worked with many no less wonderful smaller ventures, micro businesses and SME’s . A self confessed geek, she has taught at college and university levels and am a visiting lecturer at the University of Chester. With over 1000 hours of coaching experience, she describes herself as carefully treading "that line between being passionate and a tiny bit obsessive about what I do (obsession often wins)".
Sam Flynn (Social Media) runs Sam Flynn Social Media, training businesses in the effective use of social media for gaining new and return clients and customers. Sam’s background is in business psychology, and Sam’s training focus is on the relationship building side of social media and how brands can engage their audience with the right content and response. Sam also speaks at business events on social media for business.
Speed-dealing - not gambling, but quick fire connecting with like-minded individuals to spark high-trust relationships and strategic alliances, the most effective way to massively accelerate your business growth.
And, of course, the opportunity to meet new contacts and network with existing friends and acquaintances.
The event is free to attend but we would ask that you bring a contribution for our good cause, The River Manchester, who provide relief and support for persons who have suffered or are in danger of suffering from social and emotional difficulties including sex related violence or abuse, their children and dependants by the provision of food, clothing, furniture, training and other assistance. Their primary aim is to bring hope and support to those facing or fleeing domestic violence and to empower them to create a better life for themselves. They provide a safe place for people to share their lives and stories within a work structured environment.
They have suggested attendees might like to donate:
1. Pre-loved coats
2. Toiletries like soap, toothpaste, towel
4. £5 - £10 Asda/Morrisons/Tesco vouchers
Attendees at the last event got a ton of value from it and we'd love to provide the same for you.
