bristol lunch 16th oct

As someone who loves quotations, in some cases relies on them and in all cases cannot remember them I was delighted to see that the next Bristol Business Network event on 16th October 2013 is on the same day as Oscar Wilde was born (b 1854).  Delighted because there is a plethora of great Oscar Wilde quotations that can be used by anyone and numerous quotes that relate to networking!

More on the quotes later!

What is the NETWORKING lunch all about?

Among those booked so far

Bristol 16th October

11.45am. Arrival for drinks before lunch; an informal free range networking session, you have a choice of wine, fruit juice or water.

12.30pm. Sit down for 2 course served lunch (bread rolls, main course and dessert with coffee) and formal networking at your table – you will sit on a table with 7 or 8 other decision makers – none of whom do what you do – a table host will ensure that each person get at least (and no more than) 3 minutes to introduce themselves and their business and the benefits that it brings to others.
During the lunch each decision maker at your table will have 3 minutes to explain to the others the benefits that you and your organisation can offer; the type of business that you are looking for and also how other businesses can help you. Quoting Oscar – your chance to  “Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.” 
 This is where the conversations lead to connections and collaborations that will make your business more successful.  To quote Oscar Wilde and as a useful tip whenever you go networking “I never travel without my diary. One should always have something sensational to read in the train.” – your diary will have great examples of the clients you work with, the clients you are looking to work with  and the success/benefits that you bring to them.
1.30pm – table to table networking – every person has a list of who’s at the lunch and at which table they are sat.  Your“The nicest feeling in the world is to do a good deed anonymously-and have somebody find out.” – Oscar Wilde
1.40pm – Lunch speaker – an informative, enlightening 10 minutes – Sam Talby – FRP Advisory
Event finishes at 2pm – you still have the opportunity of carrying on your conversations, arranging a one to one, using the Hotel’s facilities.
All this is £34.00 (Inc VAT) covering  2 course served lunch with drinks incl. wine, delegate list, free car parking, follow up details after event – Generating an ROI on your networking
More networking quotes from Oscar Wilde!

To expect the unexpected shows a thoroughly modern intellect.

Success is a science; if you have the conditions, you get the result.

There is only one thing in life worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about.

Experience is one thing you can’t get for nothing.

“Live! Live the wonderful life that is in you! Let nothing be lost upon you. Be always searching for new sensations. Be afraid of nothing.” –

  1. Just a quick note to let you know that the seminar on Wednesday 16th October due to be hosted by Follett Stock has been postponed.

    You may have heard that Follett Stock is the subject of a winding up order issued by HMRC so under these circumstances the seminar will not be going ahead.
