‘Speed net­work­ing’ to try give busi­nesses a boost

Bray People - - News -

THREE Wick­low based en­trepreneurs have de­cided to take mat­ters into their own hands with re­gard to ‘this re­ces­sion that we are in,’ by set­ting up a speed-net­work­ing night on a monthly ba­sis.

The first will take place in the Ra­mada Ho­tel on Septem­ber 9 at 7 p.m.

Busi­nesses face each other on a one to one ba­sis and talk about their com­pany for a minute and a half, be­fore mov­ing on to the next busi­ness and so on, thereby mak­ing more con­tacts in one evening than most busi­nesses make in a month.

‘Busi­ness peo­ple spend a lot of time try­ing to make the nec­es­sary con­tacts to keep their busi­nesses grow­ing, and Speed-Net­work­ing is a proven and cost ef­fec­tive way of do­ing this,’ said a spokes­woman.

Par­tic­i­pants will be seated in pairs when the event be­gins, and with each short in­tro­duc­tory ses­sion they get to swap busi­ness cards un­til every­one has met each other.

Af­ter the of­fi­cial speed-net­work­ing event is over, the guests are in­vited to have a cup of cof­fee and con­tinue net­work­ing.
