As many of you will know and maybe some of you have attended, as well as running Creative Content Company I also run Creative Networking in Peterborough. This is a membership free networking group with a selection of different networking events, each run in a different way to appeal to everyone’s tastes and personalities.
Our Creative Networking Coffee Morning event takes place at Marriott Hotel in Peterborough, it’s an informal networking event in Peterborough where people can drop in and out and times that suit them (after school drop offs, before work, in between meetings, etc), grab a drink and start chatting, networking and getting to know the other attendees better.
Creative Networking Coffee Morning is £1 per person and this money goes towards the fees of advertising on MeetUp and also admin time to organise the events, set up and promote. We have collections of hotel toiletries for Peterborough Rape Crisis Centre and food for Peterborough Food Bank – as our way of showing we care about our community.
We have between 12 and 40 attendees at events and we have not yet had a month where there have been no new people that people in the room have not met before. The group has grown by word of mouth and recommendations, as well as adverts, blogs and Google searches. The idea is that it’s a friendly, welcoming networking event in Peterborough that people in business can enjoy.
There is also a ‘bumf’ table where attendees can put free samples, business cards, leaflets, pens and other marketing materials on that can then be viewed by other people. These items can be collected at the end or I will take them to my next Creative Networking event and lay them out there again for you, helping you to market to a wider circle.
So what are you waiting for, why not give Creative Networking Coffee Morning a try?
