On Wednesday evening, we had an amazing time with lots of different businesses at our monthly Networking Event. We met at The Stagey Fox for this months Leamington Hour’s Networking Event.
The Stagey Fox is along Regent Street who love all things theatre! You can find so many presents in there! They also have evening performance’s at their stage area which is where we held this event. Check out their WEBSITE for more info!
We had 45 minutes of open networking and then the presentations started for the evening. The speakers were fantastic! This was followed by 30 minutes of open networking and then people stayed till 9:30 pm chatting away!
Stacey Calder spoke to us about Award Ceremonies and why you should enter and attend them.
Her top five tips were:
- Do not be afraid of entering them as you do not know where they will lead you.
- Do the application yourself as nobody knows your business as well as you do.
- Use social media before, during and after to tell people that you are a finalist or a sponsor.
- Network with people inside the room even if you are not a finalist.
- Get involved with the event as a sponsor or a supporter if you are not a finalist.
Next up was our second speaker, Pat Cannon!
Pat spoke about The Buddy Bag Foundation and what it is and how it helps people.
Their purpose is to provide Buddy Bags to children who arrive in emergency accommodation without the essential items they need for their comfort and well-being.
Their mission is to make a difference to children who are living through a traumatic experience. By providing each child with a Buddy Bag they helping to restore a sense of safety and security.:
That was one of the most passionate talks I have heard and I want to thank Pat for coming over from Tamworth to speak to us all!
