Hello all of you Gloucestershire business people out there.
This is going to have to be a short and sweet blog post, not because I do not have any thing to say but my laptop is having a complete moment and will only stay on for 15 minutes before randomly restarting again. At first I thought this would be really annoying but I am quite liking the idea of just getting punchy information out to you about #TuesdayCatchUp.
#TuesdayCatchUp is now just over a year old and what can I say, it has become far bigger than I ever expected. From its humble beginning where 10 or so of us met up for a bit of business banter we are now a year on with over 40 plus attendees.
What is #TuesdayCatchUp?
#TuesdayCatchUp is a totally free networking group that invites all businesses from all around Cheltenham, Gloucester and the surrounding areas.
We are strong believers in going back to basics when it comes to making your business work and the more contacts you have the more likely you are to succeed. #TuesdayCatchUp is not all about passing leads and making referrals.
The majority of the positive feedback that we receive from people joining us at #TuesdayCatchUp is the fact that by simply getting to know and being apart of such a diverse crowd of like-minded business people they are opening more doors to business opportunities.
One of the things that makes #TuesdayCatchUp so different to any other networking group is that we understand the importance of introducing fresh faces. This is why we actively encourage all of the people who attend #TuesdayCatchUp to bring work colleagues, people they know they feel could benefit from networking, friends and even family members. By introducing new people all the time we increase the chances or new leads being created.
The structure of the #TuesdayCatchUp events is simple, you get out what you put in. You simply turn up and work the room, talk to as many or as few people as you like. See it like the mix and mingle environment of a singles dating event with a business, networking twist. You can divide your night up in to making sure you spend a couple of minutes speaking to everyone or you can just concentrate on a couple of people you feel you could really benefit from knowing.
Why should you come along to #TuesdayCatchUp?
The reason why you should at least try #TuesdayCatchUp is simple, everybody that attends is there for one reason and that is to improve their business. Not only by receiving leads but by making contacts, learning how other businesses work and by soaking up local business knowledge. #TuesdayCatchUp is like a little community so the networking does carry on out side of the events through people meeting up in the own time, having one to one meetings and by keeping in touch through the likes of twitter and facebook.
When and where is #TuesdayCatchUp
#TuesdayCatchUp is held at the Exmouth Arms Pub on the Bath Road in Cheltenham, you will find us in the main bar area. The events are held on the first Tuesday or every month so be careful as the date may vary. The event technically starts at 6:30pm but we totally understand people need to organise other things so it’s not the end of the world if you turn up slightly later. The same goes for when it finishes, most people disperse at around 8:30pm but if you can only make it for a flying visit then that is totally fine too.
If you are interested in coming along and would like to find out more then please do not hesitate to contact me by the following;
