OK, are you thinking"Networking": these events where no one talks with you, it is akward as you don't know anyone, you feel alienated even before the start and all you want is to escape as fast as possible...
I went to many "Networking" events and found all to be either a cruising group or pick up joint under any other names, where music is so loud that you cannot speak or even hear what people say. Those events are not professional and will not bring you anything at all. You may as well go to the nearest pub and save yourself the registration fee.
GPN is different! I know I am biased but please remember that this network is not for profit organisation.
As you are coming through the door, you will be greeted either by me or Ivan or another helper with a smile, a warm welcome, a badge with your name & what you do (as oppose to title or company name) to facilitate contact with each other and a glass of wine.
Our events bring together a group of between of up to 50 people to facilitate and introduce people who need to be introduced, it is not a speed networking where you have to speak with everyone, there is no pressure. You are being introduced by the facilitators to those we think would benefit you or your cause or business.
Please be aware that I do not allow people to be on their own and will introduce you to people of interest to YOU, you may choose to be chaperoned by one of the facilitators.
You will feel welcomed, relaxed and at ease in our company.
You also have the opportunity to speak and be able to talk briefly about your business.
It is very important to me that the meeting takes place in a very relaxed atmosphere, for that I chose different
venues who respond to these criteria.
We allow YOU to broaden your professional & social relationship and allow you to develop your business.
Now come and discover this for yourself!
