Growing Together - October Networking Meet-Up in Preston | The Larder | Wednesday, 02. October 2019
Whether you love it or hate it, networking is a vital part of growing your business. At The Growing Club we aren't just a network, but also a community - we aren't just connected, but also recognise the importance of exchange - no matter where we are on our biz journeys, everyone has something to offer.
5 Reasons to Join Us...
1. Facilitated Introductions
Walking into a room of strangers for the first time can be scary, especially when everyone already seems to know one another. We meet and work as a group to ensure everyone gets the best opportunity to make connections. No awkward icebreakers, elevatory pitches or having to 'mingle'.
2. "In conversation with..."
Each month we will invite local women business owners to share their stories with you. We love real conversations with real people, and we love hearing your questions too.
As female business owners we all **** the same challenges, no matter what it is that we do or sell! Each month we explore one of the ways that we sabotage ourselves, and find solutions to 'get out of our own way'.
4. Flyer/Business Card Exchange
We can't buy what you're selling if you don't tell us about it, so don't be backward in coming forward! In an effort to reduce waste and promote efficiency, you are invited to bring flyers or business cards that we will add to a pack for each attendee, so that everyone will go away with contact details for those they've met.
5. The Venue
We are hosted by the wonderful team at The Larder - a social enterprise concerned with promoting locally sourced, high quality food and food education. You will be spoilt for choice with the amazing selection of cakes on offer!
Tickets are FREE but please click through to reserve on Eventbrite so we have numbers.

“My advice to women is to reframe what “networking” is. The fact alone that the word has “work” in it creates pressure for women to feel like it’s something they have to do, and then I see women stress about how to do it. Simply putting yourself in environments that give you the opportunity to meet with peers and get to know each other and share experiences can be a game changer. And chances are, if you make meaningful connections, they are ones that will last a lifetime.”
