November 27, 2018

Wednesday 12th December


Father Christmas is real. It’s all about the proposition.


If you are looking to visit or join a business network in Bristol then this is by far the best! Not only will you get to meet some interesting and influential people in a networking format which is different and really works but you will also get the opportunity to attend free monthly seminars on a wide range of topics which will be useful to you and your business” David Doughty – Excellencia

  • You benefit from the free business seminar
  • You will meet other business owners, directors & decision makers over drinks 11.45am – 12.30pm
  • You have relationship building conversations over a served, 2 course lunch from 12.30pm
  • Your table is hosted & you don’t sit with anyone who does what you do
  • Back to your office for the afternoon as event finishes at 2pm.

Bristol Business Network has been operating successfully since 1993 and because we target senior decision-makers it is all about establishing meaningful business relationships – not a ‘hard sell’.

Many business people prefer face-to-face networking opportunities because they prefer actually knowing and meeting who they intend to do business with. But don’t just take our word for it – come and chat to our members and let then tell you why they find our format so effective.

Father Christmas is real. It’s all about the proposition.

Why do children believe and buy-in to the idea of Father Christmas? In the eyes of a child, Father Christmas is real, because the proposition that’s portrayed by parents, films and the whole event, delivers what they are wishing for, consistently, every year. And just like children at Christmas time, your customers are looking for you to consistently deliver a particular proposition – a solution to their desires, challenges and goals.

Content: A great marketing campaign is based around a fantastic proposition. The proposition is what will be better, different or easier once the customer has used or experienced your product or service. So just like Father Christmas, how do you deliver happiness to your customers?

Why you should come: This session will improve your core message about what you and your business do for your customers.

What you will take from it: A clear outline of how to create a great proposition message and how to consistently deliver that proposition.

Actions for your business: Create your proposition, identify how you can improve the consistency of delivery and filter these into your marketing and way of doing business.

Coffee and networking from 10.00am – seminar starts at 10.30am and runs until 11.45am. (optional, always rewarding, included in the price and a great networking opportunity)

Followed by THE Christmas Networking Lunch

Drinks and informal, free range networking from 11.45am.  Sit down at 12.30pm for 2 course networking lunch with coffee.  Finishing at 2pm ish as we have….

Raffle to support The Jessie May Trust 

 Jessie May is a Bristol-based charity providing nursing care at home for children and young people with life limiting conditions who are not expected to live beyond the age of 19. Jessie May was established in September 1994 by Chris and Philippa Purrington, following the death of their baby daughter Jessica May. She died from a genetic condition known as severe Spinal Muscular Atrophy when she was only 4½ months old.

Jessica’s parents were determined to do what they could to enable other children with conditions like Jessica’s and their families to have support in their own homes and the choice to die at home when that time comes. After a lot of hard work and perseverance initial funding was secured, and Jessie May was officially launched in 1996.

For reasons of safety and security, all Jessie May Care Team personnel are employed through University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust (UHBristol), and these posts are fully funded by Jessie May. All administrative personnel are employed directly by the charity. The Trust is almost entirely reliant upon voluntary funding, and encourages donations from individuals, corporate organisations, community groups and grant-making or charitable trusts. No charge is made to families using the services of the charity.

Since Jessie May was founded in 1996 the charity has supported over 300 children and their families in Bristol, South Gloucestershire, North Somerset, Bath & North East Somerset, and Swindon & Wiltshire.
