When you attend networking events, do you ever find yourself looking over the crowd, finding someone you know, and making a beeline for that person? Have you ever met someone new, who you know instantly you will never do business with, but find yourself unable to escape their grasps? In both of these situations the business connection you needed was probably on the other side of the room encountering the same set of circumstances. That’s why we invented WAVE.
WAVE is Wirral Chamber's popular speed networking event. It is a fast, easy and invigorating approach to networking.
How it Works
During our speed networking session, attendees have two minutes to conduct mini meetings with every person at the event. You are encouraged not only to let the other person know what service or product your business provides but to discuss your business needs and articulate the types of referrals you are seeking. It allows you to converse beyond the traditional 60 second elevator pitch and to set up a future meeting if you find a common interest. The aim of the event is for participants to meet a wide range of businesses and leave the session with a list of new, meaningful business contacts.
WAVE is FREE to Wirral Chamber members. Due to the popularity, places are restricted to one person per company and for this reason if you are unable to attend and fail to notify us by email firstname.lastname@example.org at least 48 hours before the event, there will be a cancellation charge of £15.00 + VAT.
Non-members are welcome to attend at a cost of £25 + VAT. Payment in advance of the event is required. If you are unable to attend and fail to notify membership on the above email at least 48 hours before the event, refunds will not be given.
We are delighted that the Fabulous Frost Fair is our sponsor for this WAVE event. The Fabulous Frost Fair is a truly spectacular three-day Christmas extravaganza taking place on 18th - 20th November 2016 at Pacific Road Business Hub. The Fair is a heart-warming family-friendly celebration of the festive season, where a magical marketplace captures the hearts of visitors who pause to enjoy a festive tipple, hearty local cuisine or produce and peruse the multitude of thoughtful, hand-crafted and top quality gifts for all the family. With workshops, demonstrations and a full programme of festive entertainment, it’s all you need for a perfect Christmas.
Now in its third year, the award-winning Fabulous Frost Fair has been recognised for its dedication to providing a spring-board for local small businesses to reach a captive audience at the key time of year for retail. The Frost Fair is vitally important for so many Wirral-based small businesses and 2016 will see us work closely in partnership with Wirral Chamber of Commerce as we almost double in size and house the fair in the Pacific Road Business Hub for the first time. With excellent transport links including buses, trains and the ferry services alongside park and ride and free Friday night transport (FFF can advise further on this free transport), the hub is the perfect location, accessible for all.
