Fun Business Networking
Welcome to The Fun Business Network: The Alternative Networking Experience
The Fun Business Network works on a simple premise: focus on good people and building relationships first and everything else will fall into place. This network is different because we do not talk business during most of our events: we simply start conversations to establish common interests and trust. The business conversation happens after we work out whether we like and trust each other first. For this reason many people who attend will not be invited to join.
Do you find business networking events impersonal, challenging, or unproductive?
Are you wary of passing on your best business connections on to people you have just met?
More importantly, do you enjoy the experience of networking for your business?
Traditional business networking works fabulously for some, and not so well for others. Many of our members are also members of other business networks. We welcome collaboration.
This is a fun alternative in business networking that focuses on the people and getting to know them on a personal level before you discuss your business with them. It could be called a half-way house between business networking and a fun afternoon/evening having fun and meeting new people.
Our philosophy is: first get to know the person, and then decide if you want to know what their business does.
How does it work?
We offer a less formal, more fun environment where people are able to mix business and pleasure. The event runs for 2.5 hours but people usually stay on for longer and get to know each other better. For the event, you will be given a number, put into a group and given a random conversation starter, some more controversial than others. This means: no more standing around at networking events wondering who to talk to or what to say. We also ask that you turn your phone off for this hour and stay completely present with the experience. This may not be easy for some!
The main reason's our members attend:
- It's a fun, relaxing way to meet new friends in business
- Attend if you can, but you don't have to be there (if you get too busy to attend, we appreciate that)
- Have great conversations
- Stay on after and continue the conversation(s)
- Make friends before deciding who to do business with
- We organise fun, social activities for our members
- Have access to our Whatsapp group to ask for help between visits
This event is an experience, and each one is different!
What's in it for you?
Your first event is free. If you would like to meet more fun and interesting friends in business, come along and experience it for yourself. If networking is an important part of your business but you are not getting the results you want or enjoying it, or are simply curious about what this is, join us and discover something different in the business networking experience.
