In a city like London the number of networking events you can attend is endless. You have networking events for SME business owners, professions and business sectors. Within these events you have different type of meetings; for breakfast, lunch, dinner or drinks and a few that specifically focus on female entrepreneurs.
One way to find out which network would be most suitable for you is simply to sign up for trial meetings for as many different networks as you like. A mixture of different networks can be a valuable asset for your business. Most networks let you come to one or two of their meetings for free or you pay a small fee if lunch or breakfast is included.
If you are really up for some serious networking you can start with a breakfast meeting with 4 Networking where you can explain your business in 40 second pitches. After that, there are set up one-to-one meetings. Then you can enjoy a lunch with Business Junction where the ‘matchmakers’ make sure that you will speak with as many business owners as possible. Like 4Networking, Business Junction has events all over London so it easy to find one close to you. Urbano’s Network Groups are communities of common interest and bringing together companies, individuals and sectors. Nabonetworking organises lunches once a month in central London and Greater London. If you are a woman and have your own business or want to start one, there are lots of interesting networks to choose from. Give the Athena network and Fabulous women a try.
Another easy way to find out what is happening in your industry and what type of network events are organised is simply to get a profile on Twitter. You can then follow people in your industry and it’s an easy tool to find good events. If you want to make sure that you don’t miss any network opportunity you can sign up to a general website called Find networking which lists all type of network events available in your area.
