Northern Soho New Year Meetup

(To the tune of "Teddy Bears picnic")

If you go down to NorthernSoho this day, you're in for a big surprise

If you go down to Thomas Restaurant & Bar this day, you're in for a bit of prize

For every creative in Manchester that ever there was

Will gather there for certain because

This day's the day the NorthernSoho creatives have their New Year Meet-up!

 

Come, meet likeminded people, have a drink, and lets discuss how we can work together to make this region even more fabulous! No set format - just make your own name badge when you get here, drop your business card into the box, grab a drink, and there will be a special surprise prize draw at some point in the evening.

This evening is supported by "Uncle" - the Mentoring service from Really Useful Research & Development Consultancy.

.... so expect some special New Year surprises... watch this space for more details or come along on the night ....

 

A Thomas Restaurant & Bar Special Surprise Food and Drink Menu has been specially prepared for us by Laura and the whole team at Thomas Restaurant & Bar.Some special surprise prices on food and drinks, including any bar treat and a mini-pizza for £7 and bottles of Peroni and Corona for £2.50. Fuller details soon.

AND this will be available from 4pm onwards until 8pm - and then an even bigger surprise afterwards!

So come along to the NorthernSoho New Year Meetup any time from 4pm onwards, and enjoy some special surprise food and drink - as well as the other surprises, and networking, collaborating and meeting other members and guests!

Smokers are also welcomed at Thomas - special enclosed area for smokers and their friends, without having to go outside into the cold onto the street. You can stay indoors!

 

LATEST

So many people are wanting to come - 86 at the last count with a week still to go - that we have negotiated to use the whole of Thomas Restaurant & Bar - not just the Club Room - from 4pm in the afternoon onwards. Come as early as you can to enjoy the atmosphere and the company.

 

 

 

.

 

Come and "Meet a Mentor"

This meeting will be preceded by our now regular Monthly Drop-in Mentoring Clinic between 3pm and 5pm on the afternoon of each Meet-up session. This gives the opportunity for any individual in creative or marketing services (from fashion to web-design) to just "drop-in" and meet a Mentor to discuss - in confidence - any issue or question relating to their personal and/or business development with an experienced Mentor.

If you're looking for a Mentor to help you with either your personal and/or your business development, we'll find you the right one for you.

Further information on our NorthernSoho MentorMatch(TM) service can be found at www.northernsohomentormatch.com, where you can find all the details of how to find a suitable Mentor to help you with either your own personal or career development - and/or your own or your organisation's business development.

    • Uncle John A.

      Paul, they don't NEED to register, but it woul make it easier if they did, so that the "check-in" and "badging" procedures at Thomas go more smoothly!

    • Uncle John A.
