The success of #FSBConnect networking events at Pinnacle House in Peterborough has led to the group confirming more dates for future meetings.
The third Tuesday on alternate months and starting at 5.30pm at Pinnacle House, Newark Road, Peterborough PE1 5YD continues as the favoured time and venue. Booking of places will be via Eventbrite and the modest £8.00 fee is payable by cash at the door.
The dates are 21 November, 16 January, 20 March, and 22 May. The format will continue with both formal and informal B2B Networking after a buffet on arrival.
The formal networking is followed by the usual brief presentation by a visiting speaker on an essential topic to help Members and Affiliates with running their businesses. Topics so far have included Effective Networking, Avoiding Cyber Crime and a talk by John Stenhouse from Signpost2Grow, the Growth Hub of the Greater Cambridge and Greater Peterborough Local Enterprise Partnership.
So far there has been some excellent ‘Golden Moments’ where a group member gets the chance to do a ‘pitch’ to highlight their own products and services and enjoy a moment in the spotlight. The Golden Moment for Tuesday 21 November is by Jack Howell of Rise Labs who specialise in improving business efficiency through technology.
The evenings are led by our Development Manager and the local Membership Adviser is also on hand to provide information and guidance. The event concludes soon after 8.00pm but most tend to linger a little longer to network informally or take the chance to have a chat with the FSB personnel or visiting speaker.
#FSBConnect is not about ‘selling’ to the room but more about creating valuable business contacts and turning group colleagues into a sales force for your business. Plus, it is open to FSB Members and also Non Members with new faces attending each event. Why not get the dates in your diary now and follow us on Twitter @FSBLincs #FSBConnect
