Yesterday Sam, Becky and Hugh attended the Meet and Mingle BBQ networking event hosted by M40 Offices and Oxford Office Furniture.
Despite the weather being terrible, the BBQ was in full swing when we arrived and there were lots of interesting people to talk to. This is the second networking BBQ the team has attended and sadly each time the weather has been awful (in true British fashion!). However, it’s never stopped us meeting a great selection of people running exciting businesses in the Oxfordshire area. The event was also a great chance for us to catch up face-to-face with a couple of our lovely local clients.
As well as being a terrific networking event it was really nice to see the business community giving back; the organisers of the event were giving £5 to the John Watson School for every new business card they received and over the last few events they had raised over £1000, which was presented to members of the school during the event as a giant cheque.
We can’t wait for the next event (not just for the burgers of course) and we’re keeping our fingers crossed that the third time will be the charm for some better weather!
