    Hi! i'm finding it tricky getting noticed, even though as suggested by a friend I am on twitter, and have built my own website (www.blurocketdesign.co.uk) I need help to market my business and gain new contacts, I think these network meeting may be a great help with that and it would be great to meet like minded people and maybe meet new friends! looking forward to the meeting on Wed.

      How are you getting on with Twitter Steve. Have you found some new contacts through engaging on there with good conversations?

      August 1

    • steve a.

      not being too familiar with twitter and the way it works I still only have 14 followers!

  • Mary M.

    Great meet up with fizzing conversations. Standing up and mingling is better for me than sitting down.

      Glad you approve
      Mary - agree, you definitely engage with more people if you walk around!

    • Francisca P.

      I agree, that's what I also experienced.

      August 1

  • Francisca P.

    I enjoyed it. Wonderful people: friendly and interesting business owners. I enjoyed talking to you guys and thank you for the tips.... I started with one tip today. Just like Valerie I thought it would be more structured BUT I have to admit that the fact that it wasn't helped me more than I thought it would. So for me, no structure....just spontaneous!! :-) I will do this again...loved it!!

    Attended my first meeting this evening , great buzz but wish it would have been a bit more structured !! Look forward to the next one

    • Rickie

      We like people to just mingle so have never had any structure Valerie. Plenty of other traditional business groups for that I guess!

    Great meeting tonight, was really interesting. Shame I did not get to chat enough people. I think there are some businesses that I would like to introduce to other businesses I work with https://bforbsutton.eventbrite.co.uk.

      Glad you enjoyed Dan - we've grown so much over the years it's impossible to say hello to everyone - but there's always next time!

    I just moved to England two weeks ago (from Belgium) so I would like to meet and be around like minded people. At the moment I am busy creating/prepairing my own Empowerment meetings for Christian women and I am in the publishing 'fase' of my book. Because I am new here in England, I would also love to hear from others how they did it (starting up etc.). Looking forward to be there too.

    Ps. Feel free to like www.facebook.com/empowerwoman is you want :-)
