Speed Networking by Joanne Dewberry (www.charliemoos.co.uk)


speed1Are you not entirely comfortable with some more 'traditional' networking groups where you can sometimes struggle to 'break in' to groups of people talking and/or don't feel confident enough to contribute much. Or you leave an event after speaking to the same old people? Well Networking Mummies has just the thing for you …. Speed Networking. The idea is the same as Speed Dating but instead of finding the love of your life you get 6 minutes to chat about business.

Networking Mummies like to work in a relaxed way there are opportunites for group networking and a bite to eat in between the 2 rounds of 1hour speed networking.

speed2“Having never been to a speed networking event before I wasn’t sure it was for me...as I like to chat more that 6 mins. However... The event was an eye opener for me and I meet people who I would have never associated with working with before... good evening” David King - DK Capture Photography and Studio Hire

I found the atmosphere welcoming and friendly, the allocated time was just right in order to introduce our companies and ask questions, it was a fun, refreshing take on networking. I would highly recommend it, especially for those who are shy as you have a one to one with someone, with out the nerves of having to approach people. I look forward to the next one” Victoria Johnson, PC's Made Simple Ltd.

The beauty of Speed Networking is that you have to spend 6 minutes talking to people, you have no choice. It’s a great way to broaden your business circle and mingle with people you might not normally.

“What a Fabulous event your Speed Networking event was! I would never have thought of that great idea. This is the way forward for me!I do fully appreciate that you have to persevere with networking, just like anything but the speed networking taught me I Can be successful at this!!“ Kate Brown - Utility Warehouse
