A fantastic way to grow your network and bring your business new opportunities.
How it works: a meeting format designed to accelerate business contacts. Delegates greet each other in a series of brief exchanges during a set period of time. During an interaction, delegates share their professional backgrounds and business goals. Networkers are generally seeking exposure to new markets and/or expanding their pool of vendors.
Top tips to get the most of Speed Networking:
- Prepare yourself by setting goals and outcomes that allow you to deliver the business message that you want to communicate
– know what you want to convey and prioritize that heavily.
- Keep it simple and respect the other person. Introduce yourself and exchange business cards before you begin
and give the other person the chance to start unless he/she prefers not to.
- Business cards are essential; either traditional physical cards or have set up business card on your mobile to forward via text/email.
14.00pm – 16.00pm Coffee Innovation Discussions & Networking – Open to all businesses
Possibly you do not like spending time in a crowd or you may meet someone at the event whom you can’t stop talking too. Not a problem, feel free to visit The Hub Café which will be open until 4pm and treat yourselves to a cuppa and delicious cake – happy networking and innovating!

This Weeks Topic
Innovation has been widely recognized as the key driver of economic growth. However, in the knowledge-driven economy, the nature of innovation is changing. Both technologies and innovations are becoming more complex as the knowledge content has increased. Intelligent Digital Workplace means to uncover smarter ways of working using new technology.
We define the Digital Workplace as a collection of evolving technologies designed around a business requirement that will give their staff members the space and freedom to work securely anywhere and on any device. It optimises their experience and engagement with the tools and resources they need to help them be more effective and productive.
