What’s the benefit of attending:4 networking encourages building connections and relationships with other members of the group in hopes that it will lead to business.
What’s the structure of the event:
- First half-hour: A gentle start- chat and mingle over a drink...
- Then introduce yourself to the group: While the meal is served and eaten, it's time for each person's 40-second pitch (no need to be nervous, the group is friendly & supportive!)
- Followed by The 4Sight slot:A 15-ish minute insight, not a sales pitch - a great way for members to raise their profile.
- Final half hour - the most important bit! Three 10 minute 1-2-1 appointments with people you've chosen earlier by swapping numbered business cards.
Things you need to know about the event:
There is a table for cards and leaflets. When organising the one to one session’s people give out their business cards with the numbers on it to other people, so if you do not have, or bring business cards this section could be difficult. People are also allowed to bring pull up banners to the event.
Please arrive at the start and book onto the event beforehand. Once you are a member you are free to attend as many or as few events as you like. That includes attending different meetings anywhere else in the country. The membership is £365 a year + VAT. However there are deals for new members.
