“Networking With a Twist” Helps You Get Maximum Mileage Out Of Your

Business Networking Investment


BONUS INSIGHT FOR AUGUST: How to Maximise the LinkedIn Changes to Grow Your Business


"Why is it called “Networking with a Twist”?"

We call it with a twist because it’s different to what you’re used to. Our events aren’t just about shaking hands and exchanging business cards. We find out about you and your networking goals so that from the moment you arrive you’ll be welcomed and introduced to relevant and related people. Our unique conversation cards help to explore and explain your business and listen to other business owners do the same. You’ll find that asking and answering questions helps to generate thought-provoking conversations that feel natural from the start and will continue after the event.

In a warm, friendly and supportive environment you’ll benefit from a combination of open networking, strategic introductions and an expert speaker with ideas and practical tips on a relevant business issue.

As business owners ourselves, we know that time is a scarce and non-renewable resource. That’s why we’ve designed a different type of networking event that delivers maximum value in minimum time with personal as well as professional rewards.


The networking was brilliant- not only the idea but the tips and how to approach it with no ‘sales pitch’ or ‘elevator pitch’ was very refreshing”. -M.Dulberg, WebbyWeb Designs, 2016


In addition to ample opportunity for conversation during open networking and table conversations, this month our valuable insight is:
