Look who’s coming – will Velcro get you hooked and networking?

March 6, 2014
 On 2nd April 1978, Velcro*, the hook-and-loop fastener, was released!
What has this got to do with networking?
Networking is about developing strong bonds (relationships) with other people through conversations that lead to connections (bonds) that lead to collaborations.
Velcro – when the 2 sides are apart is almost useless, has no strength yet when it comes together it becomes something very different – strong, versatile, adaptable………
Very much like the Exeter Business Network event on 2nd April…… come along meet others and the opportunities become endless……

 More event details

The seminar
The myths around employment. Getting it right at the start – essential information for all employers, those who are looking to employ people and those that work with employers

Followed by THE Networking Lunch 
Pre lunch drinks and informal networking from 11.45am. Sit down for 2 course lunch with coffee at 12.30pm
You sit with other decision makers – none of whom do what you do. There is a table host at each table and you have a 3 minute presentation to do for the others around your table – enthuse and inspire and build relationships. PLUS you will have a copy of the seating plan which lists everyone attending , their name, business name and what their business does and importantly what table they are sat on enabling you to network the room – more business building opportunities!
Lunch speaker – Chris Elliott from Lloyds Bank- “Turning Dragons into Teddy Bears”
Lunch finishes at 2pm
“The richest people in the world look for and build networks, everyone else looks for work.”–  Robert Kiyosaki

* It was developed by Swiss engineer Georges de Mestral, who noticed how thistle burrs clung to his clothing during a hike in the mountains. Using a microscope, he discovered their natural hook-like shape. From 1948, he worked with a local weaver from a textile plant to design a “locking tape”. The important discovery was accidental – that nylon, when sewn under ultraviolet light, formed industructable hooks. Velcro uses two tapes, one with stiff “hooks” like the burrs which clings to the second tape with soft “loops” like the fabric of his pants. The trademarked name Velcro comes from “vel” or velvet and “cro” from the French word crochet which means hook.
