The best networking event in Sussex

January 19, 2011 by Mark Vaesen

Last night I attended a fantastic networking event at The White Hart Hotel, Lewes, East Sussex organised by Robin Houghton of Egg Box Marketing and First Friday fame.  By my reckoning there were just under 70 local business people in attendance for the evening.

What I particularly liked about the event was the atmosphere.  No speeches or presentations, no fluffy stuff, just three hours of networking with others that share a similar outlook.  I met some great new people and managed to catch up with some other more familiar faces.

Robin Houghton of Egg Box Marketing and First Friday organised the whole event and did a wonderful job getting everyone together.  Thanks again Robin!

Laura Diez runs Lollipop & Pepper, a furniture and gif emporium based at the Needlemakers in Lewes.  She also provides a brilliant furniture restoration service.

Alan Jackson of Jackson Wealth Management is a financial adviser and old friend that has helped me and others in my family with their financial planning is a great guy.

Katherine Hogbin runs Kids2Work, a careers advice service for 16-24 year olds, and is also the inventor of NipperGrip, a must-have for anyone taking the kids skiing this winter.

Look out for the stunning furniture of Paula Barnes at, to be launched in March.

Louise Fenwick of Coalition Communications helps people with their marketing – whether it’s just the planning or implementation too – and tells it like it is!

Rebecca Weddell produces stunning lampwork glass – check out her website at

The next event is on May 17th, again in Lewes.  I for one will certainly be putting the date in my diary.
