It's not cancelled, it's going virtual - heck we may even go viral!!
Your House. Your Sofa. Your Office, Your Choice.
Harrogate Live 26th March 2020 (7 pm - 9 pm)
Wetherbyhour Live 7th April 2020 (9.30 am - 1130 am)
You would need to be living under a stone not to realise that we have a virus on the loose. We want to keep you all safe, but also continue to support you through these uncharted waters – We want you to network without nerves. So, we will still be holding our free networking events, but they will run from your venue of choice.
Yes, we are taking our free networking online and we hope you will join us.
Both Harrogate Live on 26th March (7.00 pm -9.00 pm) and Wetherbyhour Live on 7th April (9.30 am-11.30 am) will take place via Twitter instead of Hotel Du Vin and Wood Hall Hotel and we really hope you will all choose to come along and chat and network as you would have done.
We will be inviting our entire email list to this event. All 13,000 of them! Way more than we could fit in a physical venue. And we will be letting the wider business communities know, via Social Media, that our networking event is open to every business that wants to grow and thrive in our area. You could be networking with so many more people than would be possible at a physical event. Just think what a simple hello could bring.
Are you up for this? We hope that you are.
Here's how it will work.
It will run like a Twitter hour but for the original two hours (as per our live events). The time and date will be exactly the same;
26th March for Harrogate 7.00-9.00 pm and
7th April for Wetherby 9.30 am-11.30 am.
It would be great to see you at both virtual events if you can make it.
Here is how a Twitter hour works if you haven't attended one before.
The Hashtags for the events will be:
For Harrogate Live
For Wetherby Live
The events will be hosted by Jo and Jenni, just as normal and you can always direct message us if you are unsure of anything.
Please also feel free to use the additional hashtag #NetworkingWithoutNerves so that we can show that Yorkshire business won't be beaten by this virus but will keep on working, and networking, to keep our economy going through this difficult time.
Just to let you know that the more people who attend the event, the further your posts will travel, it's a bit like ripples in a pool spreading out across the Twittersphere.
Finally, a reminder that you don't need to wait for these two events if you want to help your business visibility both now and in the future.
Our regular weekly twitter networking events are;
#Harrogatehour networking on Twitter every Monday, 8pm - 9pm
#Wetherbyhour networking on Twitter every Tuesday, 8pm - 9pm...
So if your usual networking outlet is cancelled, wherever it is, you can always network with us every single week.
We will be letting everyone else know about this change shortly and we are excited to present our alternative networking. We really hope you join in.
We are nothing without your support.
