Cardiff has some amazing venues for event hosts to choose from: the Millennium Centre’s Sony Room with its balcony view of lunchtime concerts, Techniquest with it’s after-hour events for up to 100 sit-down or 500 buffet guests, and the Castle tower rooms which you can hire for a memorable, but I imagine chilly, medieval banquet – though accessibility is limited. Can you tell I’ve been organising quite a few events recently?
It’s no secret that personal connection helps secure good business relationships. It’s largely the reason so many business owners give me when they say they need to go to more networking events. I usually agree, but am quick to empathise that allocating time to networking is a challenge.
Summer is traditionally thought of as a time when everyone takes a break from ‘business as usual’, but it’s also a time when business owners can benefit from making more connections.
The good news is that, generally, people have more time and energy to invest in making new connections in August and September – especially if they’ve just returned from holiday. So contrary to what you might expect, now can be a really productive time to build your network of business connections.
Here are some events taking place over the next couple of months that are open for bookings now – enjoy #connectingtogether
If you’re looking to build your business connections, there’s a diverse mix of networking events taking place over May and June which offer you a great opportunity to do so. From an evening of wine and cheese with the CIPD to pizza and beer with Zokit, IoD and Cardiff Business Awards dinners to business breakfasts, there’s literally something to suit everyone – even if you’re averse to networking!
I first googled ‘business networking events, Cardiff’ over a year ago, while I was setting up Glew. Nowhere could I find a comprehensive list of everything taking place. The more I looked and asked around, the more events I discovered.
Cardiff may have officially stepped into Christmas last Thursday, but 2017 isn’t over yet. There are still some great networking opportunities over the next few weeks to help you build new business connections and start 2018 off on the right foot.
