There’s no doubt that networking – in all its forms – plays an important role in the long term success of most businesses, particularly during tough economic times. But some networking events can seem rather formal, or too focused on selling. For some business owners and managers, they can even be a bit daunting.
FastTrack Grantham aims to be different.
Grantham has loads of successful businesses, run by some really inspirational people. FastTrack Grantham is an opportunity for them to get together, sharing ideas and experiences in a relaxed, informal environment.
The first FastTrack Grantham networking event takes place this Wednesday, February 8, at the stylish Priory Business and Conference Centre, in the heart of Grantham.
So what’s different about this networking event?
• It will be relaxed and engaging
