New Oxford Business Networking Group
We’re getting set for another big week next week with our first ever partnered Networking in… We’re delighted to be working with South & Vale Business Support to bring a new Oxford Business Networking group with Networking in… on the 2nd Wednesday each month at 10.30am.
What’s prompted the new Oxford Business Networking Group group?
We’ve known for a while that an alternative time slot was needed for our network, as the pre 9am sessions don’t work for everyone. With SVBS sponsorship we are now able to fulfil that need. As well as invite Nick and his team to update members on local initiatives and advice to support local business.
The first event is set to be a sell out with a number of tickets sold already and some great interest. We’ll be welcoming Mike Lawton to the gang, to talk about “Working the media”. Mike is a serial entrepreneur and has previously worked at the BBC. He’ll share some tips using real life examples on how you can work the media without having any budget.
What can networkers expect?
The new Oxford based networking group will follow the same format as other Networking in… events. Enabling new members to introduce themselves, a series of larger and smaller breakout rooms, and a guest speaker each session (affectionately known as a local hero). The events are high energy, faced paced, and fun. We pride ourselves as being the ‘Friendliest Networking Group’ in our corner of the internet.
We believe we have a winning format that enables competitor businesses to attend freely without competing for business in each breakout room. As well mixing up the rooms so that each visitor doesn’t meet with the same people multiple times. As a result there are no requirements to be the only person attending from your industry, no complicated rules and each person gets the most from their experience.
We’ve found a loyal tribe of business owners from South Oxfordshire to Dorset, Wiltshire to Surrey, Berkshire to North Oxfordshire. With regular attendees and members from France, Uganda and Spain. The Online Business Networking concept although tricky to adapt to when Covid first struck, is proving more and more popular. With geographical boundaries no longer an barrier, our members started coming from further afield, and from all walks of life.
Here’s what some of the regulars have to say about Networking in…
Didcot resident Darren Elsley of Bollox Boxershorts said. “There’s always such a fun and friendly vibe that you get at Networking in… it’s really high paced, with great energy in the room. I’d highly recommend it”
Wantage resident Jon Walter said. “Networking in… has been an incredible experience in getting to know a really great group of people. On top of that it’s been a great source of leads and business as well. I highly recommend Networking in…”
Eva Rickett of South Oxfordshire based Henley Scan said. “Networkingin… is fabulous fun, together with other businesses who are happy to share their knowledge and entrepreneurial journeys. I wouldn’t be without it!”
