How does it work?

Drawing on some key information you provide on registration, we strategically place you on a table of 6-8 people to find synergies for future opportunities for your business.

Over two delicious courses you will engage in informal and more structured business conversations and share why your clients choose you.

A feature of the April Progressive Dinner will be our annual YTM Award.  This fun competition sees 7 competitors delivering a five-minute pre-prepared pitch to the room around ‘why choose me’. Come and be inspired and entertained by other business owners and register your vote .

It is a different type of networking event focussed on making connections and building authentic relationships that will help you and your business grow and flourish.
