This month we’re feeling particularly festive at Rise Up so we’re introducing our December networking event - Thank Goodness It’s Christmas! We’ll be hearing from two businesses about how to maximise sales over the Christmas period as well as taking part in some networking festivities.
For speakers we have Easy Teasy – a Newcastle based loose leaf tea company who are stocked in Fenwicks – coming to talk about the power of Christmas markets and how they market products specifically towards Christmas sales. We also have Clare’s Squares – a Newcastle University graduate’s company who make a variety of delicious traybakes - coming in to talk about their business and what they get up to over Christmas to maximise on potential profits.
After the entrepreneurs have shared their stories there will be time for questions and networking over wine and beer in order to find out more about how to overcome problems or how Rise Up can help you on your enterprising journey!
This month there will also be some interactive festivities to ensure that we spread the Christmas spirit by welcoming and meeting as many people as possible at the event. There’ll also be everyone’s favourite Christmas tunes.
As usual you can expect inspiring stories, new contacts and free pizza! In addition, this month there will be some delicious mulled wine and keep a look out for mince pies.
Suggested dress code: Christmas Jumpers. Free candy canes/chocolates for all those involved!
