Hi, I would like to invite you to our open day (well morning!)
Leeds business Networking is unique in many ways that you could only assess from visiting us, which is why we are having an open day (well morning!) which would only cost you £10 including a full breakfast.
Our membership prices are only £195 per year for full membership with no joining costs, our competitive prices are because I already run a successful business and I wanted to create a quality cost effective networking group within myCatalyst™ that helps business’s and prospective businesses to become involved in networking in a comfortable environment.
Within our meetings we have networking introduction & training, role plays and business advice.
Our meetings start 7.00am onward with freeform networking, with a full breakfast being served around 7.30 which is our “official” start time. Then it's around a table for the formal part which includes handing out cards and a few minutes opportunity for you to explain who you are, what you do, your Unique Attribute or USP, and your target audience, in which ever way you feel happy with.
We have a full agenda until 9.00 when we officially stop, however networking continues as needed after that time. We are also planning separate one off daytime events with a variety of themes as well as panel advice events.
The venue is at Hillside myCatalyst™ (the site of the old primary school) Beeston Road Leeds LS11 8ND. Look up our established sister group at www.LeedsBusinessForum.co.uk
We meet every other week and our next meetings are on the 31st of July and then the 14th & 28th of August.
Please let me know if you'd able to come or not by emailing me on firstname.lastname@example.org or ringing me on 07818021272, so we can tailor our catering requirements.
It would be great to see you, and hope you will soon be in a position to join us soon. email@example.com Tel: 0113 2946222 Fax: 0113 2946222 Mobile: 0781 8021272
