It’s that time of the month again when I realised I have taken far too long to do another #TuesdayCatchUp blog post. With an amazingly busy month at the CBF Towers and the wonderful Cheltenham Horse Racing Festival, time has just been taken away from me in the past couple of weeks.
I know a lot of people like reading the previous #TuesdayCatchUp review but I am making this post more about looking towards the future. There is lots going on in the #TuesdayCatchUp camp and there is some really exciting news to come out too (keep reading to find out what it is).
Before I go into all the exciting news I just want to share a very interesting fact with you all. You may not believe it but #TuesdaycatchUp is in fact only 9 events old, but already over the last three events we have consistently hit 50+ attendees. That includes our February event where we believe we had our record attendance we over 60 people turning up.
For those of you that may have not attended a #TuesdayCatchUp event, just think that this is an extra 50+ businesses monthly event that you could be introducing yourself to. Not many other networking groups can offer those kinds of figures and the best thing about it is the event is FREE.
Now, some of you may have noticed that we have been a tad quiet on the Winston’s Wish fundraising front. This is because we have a big sweep stake taking place at the May event so we wanted you to be able to really dig deep in to those pockets and donate to get your chance to win some fantastic prizes.
For those of you that don’t know, my partner & I are expecting our first child on the 6th June. So the May sweep stake is going to be based on guessing the sex of the baby, date of birth & weight. I shall be going in to more detail with regards to the baby sweep stake in a blog post to follow but to take part you must be at the May 1st #TuesdaycatchUp event.
Now to the most important news, some people are saying it’s the news of the century, well I have been anyway.
Due to the great success of the Cheltenham #TuesdayCatchUp business networking event, me and the oh so lovely Rachel Davis of the British Heart Foundation (@GlosOx) are pleased to inform you all we are now introducing the Gloucester #ThursdayCatchUp.
So for those of you lovely business people that were always interested in the idea of #TuesdaycatchUp but couldn’t make it over to Cheltenham, here is your chance to get involved at our Gloucester event. This is not to say if you are from Cheltenham or already go to #TuesdayCatchUp you cannot join us at #ThursdayCatchUp as well. In fact we are encouraging followers of #TuesdayCatchUp to come to the Gloucester event as you are only going to introduce yourself to even more businesses if you do. We would love to see businesses from all over come and support the event.
The Gloucester #ThursdayCatchUp is going to take place on the third Thursday of each month, with the first event taking place on the 19th April at 18:30.
Keep your eyes peeled for a far more detailed blog post with regards to #ThursdayCatchUp with lots more news and information.
