September Maidenhead Business Girls Meet Up - Open Networking
Wed 7 September 2016, 09:30 – 11:30 BST
MAIDENHEAD BUSINESS GIRLS SEPTEMBER MEET UP
OPEN NETWORKING - What colour are you?!
The first meet up after the long summer holidays. Time to dust off the cobwebs and get back to business!
Guests will be encouraged to choose one of five coloured spots to wear when they arrive by choosing a sticker badge:
Blue - I have an idea
Green - I'm here to be inspired
Orange - I want to tell you about me
Grey - I'm here to be part of the community
Yellow - I'm looking for collaboration
The goal is to strip away the formalities and to connect the colours between attendees. I don't like the word 'networking'. It reminds me of turning up to fussy events with a pocket full of business cards, feeling under pressure to sell. Our events are about building relationships. When you take the time out to get to know someone, magic just happens. The open networking events will be held once a quarter. Tell the room what you need and if you can't find someone to help you, somebody will know somebody who can.
Our meet ups are friendly and fun with an infectious vibe, fizzing around the room. When women connect, a transformation happens. We encourage women with different backgrounds, different businesses and at different stages of their career to join in. You never know who you are talking to and how they might be able to help you or ineed might know someone who can. We believe you can all help each from waitress to high flying CMO. We need to work together to change the perception of how we really do business. We can learn and support each other in the process.
