You either love it or you hate it, but you can’t do without it! What are we talking about? Networking. Whether you already run a well-established business, or you are an emerging entrepreneur, making time to attend networking events is absolutely vital.
One such event that should be on your annual calendar is the Business Network and Growth London (BNGL) event, which recently held their popular event.
More than 150 reps from businesses, entrepreneurs, technologists, angel investors and business consultants, gathered at We Work, Aldgate Tower, in London on 6 June 2018, for BNGL, one of the largest networking events of its type anywhere in the Capital.
The event, which was organised by Ebonyonline.net, a leading entertainment and business portal and Dynamyk Events, a London-based events agency & consultancy, brought together Black and minority ethnic community businesses from across a range of sectors including finance, tech, accounting, wealth planning, recruitment, health, e-commerce, legal and coaching for a packed evening of referrals, connections and trading of goods and services.
Tayo Idowu, editor of Ebonyonline.net, said: “The format of the event is compact, punchy and fast paced, and the quality and range of the exhibitors we chose reflect the diverse range of the attendees of the event.”
Noted business growth expert and mentor Asari St Hill of ActionCoach hosted and facilitated the event. She said: “It was great to come along and see the hard work of the BNGL team in putting together this wonderful event.” She continued: “Through these kinds of events, businesses in particular Black owned businesses have a much-needed opportunity to network, increase their contact base, generate leads and referrals as well as learn about growing their business from the themed workshops.”
Michelle Fanus, from Dynamyk Events, said: “At the event, we actively encouraged business to business connections, speaking opportunities and development of new contacts and leads. During the event, attendees were also able to attend free workshops on public sector procurement and raising business finance that would easily have cost them hundreds of pounds.”
