Vipal Karavadra, Founder and Director of Fluid, a Commercial Finance Brokers, regularly attends Network Watermead. He said, “I’ve been attending these networking events for over 5 years and there is always a decent turnout. There is a good mix of people from new and established businesses and most industry sectors are represented.”

“These events are nice and casual, everyone is friendly and I’ve built a lot of useful contacts. Attendees are given a badge to hold their business card so you know who everyone is and everyone’s details are on a board so you can scope out who is in the room which is really useful if you’re looking to talk to a particular person. There is Starbucks coffee available to buy, free networking and free parking, what’s not to like!”

Ian Morris, Commercial Director at EHL Group and co-organiser of the event said, “This free event really is for anyone and everyone in business! There is always a positive, relaxing atmosphere at our networking events and everyone that attends, really enjoy getting to know other key people in the local area.”

“Networking has an important part to play in any business big or small so feel free to come along next week, bring a contact or colleague and don’t forget to bring plenty of business cards!”
