As part of my BOLD business, I am running a networking event with a difference next week and I'd love to see some VOOM-ers there, as hopefully it's a useful topic.
For many people, even the word 'networking' fills them with dread, so I have enlisted the help of Kelly Hoey to show us how it can actually be a fun and interesting thing to do, and is more about real human connections and relationships than schmoozing, business cards and boring chat. Networking is particularly challenging for introverts, but we mustn't let that stop us taking those important steps in our business, career or even personal lives.
Kelly is a US networking guru who has been named as one of the “25 Smartest Women On Twitter” by Fast Company and “1 of 5 Women Changing the World of VC/Entrepreneurship” by Forbes. She's speaking at #InspireFest this week and we're lucky enough to be hosting her only UK event when she's in London next week. The session will be in the form of a fireside chat and detailed audience Q&A, so you'll have plenty of time to ask Kelly everything you've always wanted to know about networking. Full details are on our Eventbrite page - https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/build-your-dream-network-fir… and I've set up a special discounted ticket for VOOM Pioneers that gives you entry for just £10. Just enter the code 'voomvoom' in Eventbrite and you should see it.
Please get in touch if you have any questions and I hope to see some of you there next week!

@sarahjordan Sounds like a great event too far for me to travel. However does anyone know of similar events in the North?

It went really well in the end, thanks for checking in. It was quite a small group, but that actually made it more intimate and interactive, which I think people really benefitted from.
Sadly Kelly is now back in the US, but I will let you know when we organise another similar event. Full details are on the Bold website too - www.becomebolder.com
