I arrived at the Fist Thursday Networking at 19:08 following a day in Nottingham.
This evenings event was a jointly sponsored by Preston Grass Hoppers Rugby Football Club (PGRFC) and Anderton Gable Chartered building surveyors at the usual venue, Stratos. By all accounts many people had left and the group was thinning out.
Jonathan Shaw, Partner & Director at Anderton Gables and I are great friends form ‘back in the day’. Johnny, as call him, loves sharing the stories about sparring with me during my career as a professional fighter.
Johnny introduced me to Richard Ellis, General manager at PGRFC. Richard was very interested to hear of my boxing experience. He then asked for my opinion on ‘White Collar Boxing’. Over the next few minutes we outlined a plan to promote such an event at the Grasshoppers ground. I agreed with Richard that I would MC the event. Staff members at Anderton Gables were eager to ‘Get It On’ and RRHummmblllllle in the bar!
Johnny next introduced me to Helen Clutterbuck of Napthenen Solicitors. Helen specialises in Property litigation for both private and commercial clients. Helen and I managed a few minute chatting before declaring it was time for her to leave. Johnny, of course tried persuade Helen to stay for ‘just one more’.
The rest of my evening was spent with members of Johnny’s company and getting to know them. They certainly live up to their billing a dedicated and enthusiastic team of chartered building surveying and project management service consultants.
As a team they are taking part in this weekend’s Men’s Health Survival of the fittest, held in Manchester http://www.mhsurvival.co.uk/manchester-2/
Thanks for a great evening, the introductions to your trusted connections and good luck on Saturday Johnny.
