Around 50 local business representatives get ready to Network
Great first meeting at the new home of the Rossendale Business League network event – Rossendale Rugby Club , Marl Pitts.
Personally, it was great to see so many friends and be introduced to new members.
Berni was clearly overflowing with excitement and enthusiasm as she opened and MC’d the session.
Moving forward with her successful formula, Berni opened with two or three announcements and updates before introducing the sponsors.
Chrissy Pilkington was her usual enthusiastic self extolling the virtues of the East Lancs Chamber and her personal guarantee of self commitment to help existing and prospective members – ‘Onwards and Upwards’. Many happy belated returns Chrissy.
Next up was the Higher Ed manager, Charlotte Scheffmann . The Dean invited local businesses to look long and hard at the work the college is doing to deliver high quality interns to local businesses.
Time to network around the tables. The format allowed two table changes before breaking for lunch. It was great to hear people at my table making suggestions of immediate introductions as others pitched their business.
Following the lunch break Liz Nightingale introduced her service to the room – Woodwind Music teacher. Her message was simple, with your commitment and her help you could go from beginner to playing a simple tune like ‘When the Saints go marching in’ in less than 10 lessons on a Saxophone (How cool would you be…..?).
