“Best one yet,” was a comment heard as people left the 7th annual Business Networking Event last Wednesday 24 April. It truly had a great ‘buzz’ about the evening and the noise of talking just kept going on throughout the evening.
A total of 117 local business people chatted and made connections during the evening. 1,900 recorded connections were created using our technology partner for the event, Blendology, who provided electronic business cards that attendees tapped to record who they had met.
Sarah K, an Award-Winning Social Media expert at Etica, joined the evening for a short presentation on how to build a Powerful Community and Personal Social Media Brand, providing hints and tips for smaller businesses engaging with their customer base through social media platforms.
Initial feedback has been very positive with attendee feedback ranging from “very useful for start-ups’ to ‘the best Networking Group I’ve been too”.
The event is organised by Leighton-Linslade Town Council with FSB as one of the key partners along with Hascat Safety, LB Connect, Bee Local and Central Bedfordshire Council.
