Hi everyone, I’m Jason, MD of 4Networking and I wanted to give you an update on what’s going on and what you can expect to see in May 2018.
4N attend and sponsor a range of events throughout the year, but The Business Show at ExCeL in London (May 16 & 17) is undoubtedly one of the biggest! We have a huge stand with loads of our amazing members delivering their 4Sights throughout the event, so it’s a great one to be part of, especially when tickets are free! Our illustrious Chairman, Terry Cooper, will be in the KeyNote theatre on the first day and I’ll be speaking on day 2. You can also see our high energy motivational founder Brad Burton in action and have a chat with Network Leader Michael Nagles, so there is a lot going on with 4N as well as across the whole event.
We are also exhibiting at a whole host of other regional business shows over the next couple of months, so make sure you check out what’s coming up to see what’s in your area. Visit the 4N forum post for full details.
We love launches of new 4N groups as they help to spread the 4N love into new areas! There are so many coming up in May and June it’s hard to keep track. We have also started posting our launches on the 4NHQ Facebook Page so please let us know if you are planning to attend, after you have booked in through the 4N website of course! You can find a full list of May and June launches on our forum + details of some special 4N meetings - three BIG Breakfasts and a MASSIVE Manchester Lunch.
You might have seen that I was 4Sighting in Dorchester in April for their launch and what a launch it was! There were loads of members in the room and 11 visitors. I gave my Video Games 4Sight, which went down really well and I had three great 1-2-1s with Martina Hawkins of Wessex Eco Energy, Jennie Veale of Alter Ego and Carl Mintern of Mintern Group. See when the next 4N Dorchester Breakfasts are coming up. If you want to catch me in the network, I will be 4Sighting at Tewkesbury Breakfast in May so get booked in and grab a 1-2-1 with me. Would be great to see you there!
I got an interesting call from Fiona Scott, our PR maestro, with an opportunity. Next thing I know I had a seat on the ‘All About Politics’ panel on Sky News with Adam Boulton discussing Brexit and what that means to our members and SMEs. You may remember we did a survey of our members on the anniversary of the Brexit vote, which we shared on our Facebook Community, so I was able to give some insight into your feelings and it was great to have 4N seen on such a high-profile channel.
We have many opportunities like Sky News come up all the time and these are shared within our Network and our Facebook Community, so make sure you join if you are not already part of it.
Don’t forget that we also have our LinkedIn Community for our Passport Members, which is growing quickly and becoming very valuable. I’ve posted a sneaky peak into what is happening with our new updated website, so if you are a Passport member get yourself in there and have a look.
Got some good news or someone you’d like me to give a shout out to? Drop me an email firstname.lastname@example.org and I will see you in the network soon!
