Starting out in business can be exhilarating and liberating, but it can also become stressful, tiring and lonely.
For many the solution is networking, but for many more the idea of networking is utterly terrifying or cringe-worthy.
Which gave us an idea.
We wondered if we could combine the lovely things about networking – the drinks, meeting interesting people, getting out of the office – and cut out the awkward bits. No ‘experts’ talking at you from the front, no-one trying to push products down your throat and no-one trying to sign you up.
So we’re going to give it a go. Our first Small Business Networking Event is happening on the 26th January, 5.30-7.30pm at Ink & Water Coffee in Sheffield.
No sales pitch, no entry fee, just turn up and leave when you like.
We’ll be serving the usual coffee and yummy cake, as well as beer, wine and cocktails to get the conversation flowing. Just bring yourself (and a friend if you like!)
