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.
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.
Look out for the stunning furniture of Paula Barnes at www.elizabarnes.com, 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 www.rebeccaweddell.co.uk.
The next event is on May 17th, again in Lewes. I for one will certainly be putting the date in my diary.
