FSB’s Connect events continue to be well received in Lancashire and plans are afoot to replicate the structured yet informal style of networking in North and South Cumbria so that more members have business to business opportunities.
FSB member Ian Allison commented on how good the events have been for his business Allison Consultancy: “I’d just like to say that after attending just three meetings at Samlesbury Hall, I have acquired one new piece of business with two looking very strong in the pipeline.
I am very pleased with this result and will certainly continue to attend your events at Samlesbury Hall, holidays permitting!”
All events are listed in the new weekly enewsletter sent to members and also feature on the regional pages of the website.
The events have no guest speaker and focus on quality introductions to potential new contacts and clients. In groups of 5 or 6 each attendee has 2 minutes to introduce themselves and their business before exchanging business cards and rotating around different tables. More detailed discussions over lunch and follow up meetings are then encouraged.
