The other evening I was MC at a networking event held at Kempton Park Racecourse. The evening was organised by Malcolm Tullett and Warren Cass of Business Scene. Over 100 people turned up from a variety of businesses including Andy Lopata of Word of Mouse
Earlier this week , Andy had a full page article in the Sun newspaper on business networking. Well done Andy. Both he and I would agree that networking is about unconditional giving and not about trying to get business too quickly. Also, I bumped into a brilliant lady, divorce coach Kirsten Gronning
One of the speakers was David Sumner-Smith of The Telegraph Business Club. David gave a really interesting talk about how technology can assist SME's. He focused, in particular, on two growing areas - the internet (as a way of marketing your business) and Web-based television. In-Situ Productions are one such production company offering these services and filming the event were i-catching movies
There were others from the media world, including Chantal Cooke of Passion Radio and Mel Tyler of TigerTwo who are social media consultants.
