I’ve been involved with business networking organisation 4Networking for about 18 months now and it’s had a huge impact not only on my business but on my whole life. Unlike many business networking groups, 4Networking prides itself on being 50% business, 50% social – and it works.
4Networking has almost 200 groups around the country, meeting for breakfast between 8am and 10am every fortnight. There are at least half a dozen within half an hour’s drive of my office, and as I’m a passport member I can travel to any of the groups around the country, as little or as often as I like – so I can go to my nearest group in Faringdon and also visit groups in Witney, Swindon, Abingdon, Oxford or further afield (Edinburgh, perhaps!) whenever I want.
4Networking has given me so much, a lot more than I ever thought a business networking group would offer. I’ve picked up new advertisers and contributors for In The Vale magazine, a whole new business (The Proof Fairy) offering editorial and publishing services, new friends, support and a few laughs along the way.
Recently I took over the Faringdon and Witney 4Networking groups as Area Leader and I also started running the Faringdon group, which meets at Carswell Golf Club on the A420 on alternate Thursdays. Our next meeting is on 3rd September and we have a special guest speaker – Tim Johnson is one of the directors of 4Networking but more than that, he is a truly inspirational man who had to rewrite his life story after a car accident tore his world apart.
It would be great to see you at the meeting. If you would like more information or to book, simply visit the 4Networking.biz website, or give me a call. See you there!
