First Friday Professional Busienss Introductions
Stephen Iacovou and Nicola Gallet are the steering couple behind this City centre Networking Club. I was privileged to be invited to the inaugural First Friday Club (FFC) back in October 2015. Since then they have gone from strength to strength forging relationships and connecting people throughout the business community.
Stephen and Nicola have now decided to take FFC on the road, kicking off with the first one at Tapeo & Wine. This is a very salubrious venue in the heart of Deansgate and no wonder when you learn that the owner is Spanish international and Manchester United football star Juan Mata.
Stephen commented that ‘Manchester is such a rich vein of interesting and remarkable venues, we plan to sample some of them for an experience that for many of our club visitors will probably be a first’.
Following a welcome drink and address, each guest introduced themselves before being seated for yes, Tapas and Wine.
Conversations flowed easily in this very relaxed atmosphere and it wasn’t long before people started swopping places and contact details.

Ps On my train journey to the meeting, I stumbled into a carriage full of Scots revellers on Walsh’s stag weekend. They welcomed me with open arms and a can of cider – it was great fun.
