Business in Berkshire Blog Networking Lunches

Being in sales can be a very lonely existence… as a Sales Director or CEO it can get even lonelier and so coming together with others in the same boat could be beneficial?

And since, in this modern world of technology, it would be remiss not to invite the marketing guys & gals to join us as we’re all trying to maximise our organisations revenues and profit margins.

How many opportunities do you get to spend time with your peers, coming together to network and learn from each other makes a ton of sense to me, hope it does to you.

We’ve chosen to host the first event at a top Berkshire venue that is central to the county with easy access to major roads and offering plenty of parking… plus clean loos… priced to ensure the right calibre of attendees join us…

Location: De Vere Wokefield Estate, RG7 3AE
Date: Friday 26th January 2018
Cost: £50 + VAT

(Paypal will charge not mentioning VAT but I will send an invoice which will show the VAT)

We want the event to leave you wanting more… so it needs to be interactive, educational, offering practical advice, maybe inspirational, definitely facilitating greater connectivity and satisfying your hunger in more ways than one!

Often events have too many speakers, not allowing enough time to network… we’re very much about allowing those present to connect as this is how new ideas are born.

We’re capping the first event at around 60 attendees so you’d best get booking fast as over 100+ showed an interested when I asked the BinB Group back in October combined with some initial reaching out I have done via LinkedIn.

I’m going to be proactive during December, sharing the event with hundreds of Sales / Marketing Directors and CEOs of companies in and around Berkshire.

The event cost covers teas, coffees, buffet lunch at a great venue. Sponsorship allows us to put on further events and make them even better than the first. I’ve been speaking to a few potential sponsors already but wanted to get the page up… as sponsors confirm I’ll add relevant links and imagery.
