We’re still on a high after our fantastic lunch at the House of Lords last month, hosted by The Lord Kamall and attended by more than 120 businesses, connecting and reconnecting in the most auspicious – and on the day sunniest – of surroundings.
Seasonal temperatures might not be that impressive now, but at least Business Junction’s August business networking weekly events programme is looking hot!
With 50+ business guests at every event, we kick off at Bank on the 2nd, where we’ll be enjoying a Prosecco reception and mouthwatering bowl food lunch, courtesy of Forge.
On the 10 th we’re off to The Brasserie at the New Moon in Leadenhall Market, and another stunning lunch array of food and drink. Drake and Morgan’s in King’s Cross proved such a hit with our Champagne breakfast guests recently that we’re back there on the 17th , this time for lunch in their modern library area.
August’s evening networking reception will be held at The Botanist at Broadgate Circle, just next to Liverpool Street station on the 23 rd . And if the rumours of a good late summer are anything to go by, we’ll be able to enjoy the full benefit of their huge sun terrace! We’ll be rounding off the month with a lunch event in the Map Room of the much-loved Daly’s Wine Bar in The Strand.
See the full August programme here, complete with details of venues, menus and booking information, as well as some of our autumn highlights, including September’s champagne breakfast at One Lombard Street for those who like to get their networking done before the City is fully awake.
Networking Tip of the Month
Increasingly, the City tends to slow down in the summer but if your business is a bit quieter over this period, use the time not only to make some potentially significant new connections for later in the year, but also to follow up and explore opportunities in a slightly more relaxed mode with contacts you made in the more hectic months earlier in the year.
With lockdown still a recent memory, the opportunity to get out and meet up face-to-face feels more like a pleasure than a chore. Zoom and Teams are all very well, but nothing beats connecting in person!
