Networking – worth while or a waste of time?

Networking is a great way to meet other like minded business people.  It is a fabulous way to talk to , learn from, or help out other businesses.  It opens up lines of communication that may prove to be valuable in the future.

That’s hopefully what we aim to do by our get togethers at the Centre.  Last Thursday 18 of us took the time out of our busy working days to meet up over an informal ‘munch’.  As Centre Mananger, it was nice to be able to introduce new tenants and to get people talking about their businesses.  We have such a variety of different skills on offer here and it was great to chat about any difficulties that small businesses might face as well as brainstorming ideas.
