IoD Essex were delighted to bring together our newest IoD 99 members to share ideas and challenges with each other and other IoD member and guests at this interesting and enjoyable networking event, kindly hosted by Barclays.
With a packed room full of business leaders across a broad-range of different industry sectors, our members were able to network with other new business directors to share best practice and make valuable long lasting connections for the future. The networking event encouraged entrepreneurs, founders, and co-founders to engage with the wealth of expertise and experience that is unique to every IoD member.
Our IoD Essex Ambassadors were on hand to discuss how they can use their expertise to help and support businesses, both in the first few years of business formation and going forwards. Following introductions from our Ambassadors, Jade Clarke, the IoD 99 Community Coordinator provided members with the opportunity to deliver a 30 sec micro pitch on their businesses to fellow 99ers and the wider IoD membership.
The relaxed and informal environment allowed guests to take the ‘work’ out of networking and enhance their knowledge on key business topics. The variety of positive comments subsequently received from members and guests highlighted the success of the event and the value that guests were able to take from the evening.
Our sincere thanks go to Barclays for hosting and helping in the organisation of this event.
As our third sell-out event of 2019, please ensure you book onto our next events whilst spaces are still available to book;
