Why should you attend? – Friday Networking Lunch – Feedback from Attendees

Posted on Updated on

Here are some comments from the event survey’s we do after each lunch.

  • Good range of businesses with differing issues and skills in Service based business.
  • Open conversations and genuine desire to help
  • Relaxed friendly meeting
  • Low key, not a hard-sell like BNI
  • Meeting new people and time allocation was reasonable
  • Its open about networking with card swapping and that takes the guess work out of manoeuvring  around a room like other network events.
  • Ability to meet people outside of IT and learn many things about those area’s
  • Meeting new people
  • It was relaxed and informal, and there was plenty of time to chat
  • The informal discussions and meeting people who I would not ordinarily get the chance to meet in other forums
  • Good to meet people who are from different areas which makes for interesting discussions.
  • Great company, a great excuse to take a break on a Friday and make new contacts
  • Networking and idea sharing
  • friendly people and great food
  • Sat there thinking about whether it was worth it, when the fellow next to me made an initial enquiry about a project. All of a sudden, it was worth it!
  • Talking with diverse but essentially like minded people
  • Chance to meet new people
  • There was more genuine conversation this time
  • Nice big group this month

    I search such a group to be able to grow my business NZ wide, I am a bookkeeper working from home offering bookkeeping and payroll services working with MYOB products and Xero for which I am a certified adviser, I am a partner of crystal payroll, smart payroll, Flexitime payroll, ace payroll…
    While I am working from home it is not easy to find people to connect with, and while I am French and my English is not necessary the best, may look like a barrier, but I am working on side of renowned Kiwi Accountants which is a plus for me.
    Till now I did find some “Year End” customers, but I expect from such a group help to find more regularly customers on every day basic, maybe someone in need of a bookkeeper for few hours a week, or a month, this will be a good start…
    I will definitively come tomorrow on Friday at the Wellington group.
