Manilva feels the love for networking 15/02
Businesses of the Western Costa del Sol are invited to attend the Shaw Marketing Services networking event in Manilva from 18.30-20.30 on Wednesday 15th of February and make new business contacts and promote their company. This friendly, bilingual event is the first of 2017 and as it’s just a day after Valentine’s it will be a way for us to show some love to our businesses and support each other to grow and succeed in this new year.
The structure for the event will be as follows –
6.30 – Arrival and relaxed networking
7.00 – Speed networking session
7.45 – Speed networking ends and you can continue conversations and contacts made to develop relationships
8.30 – Ends
We love speed networking, as it’s a really efficient and fun way to make first contact with new businesses and then you can take the time to speak to the most relevant people again once the session is finished. Guests will sit facing each other and each person will have one minute to explain who they are and what they do, before a whistle is blown and the other person takes their turn. At the end of the two minutes you then move on to the next person and go again.
To make sure you do well at speed networking, you need to prepare and practice a 1 minute elevator pitch which includes all the key information about your business and make sure you have plenty of business cards. Once you’ve done one, all the others will be easy, and it’s lots of fun.
Another way we’re going to share the love is to support the Specsavers Opticas campaign to collect food for the Costa del Sol’s food bank Bancosol. Attendees are asked to bring along a small donation of non-perishable food such as oil, tinned fish, preserved meat and meals in a can such as soups and stews. These will be passed over to Specsavers in Marbella and donated to Bancosol at the end of the month.
We hope you can join us in February at this excellent event. There is a small cost of 5€ per person, which includes the networking activities and drinks and snacks. Payments are made on the day, but attendees are asked to RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve their place.
