Tendring Community Speed Networking Event
Posted on: July 6, 2022
My Name is Les Nicoll I am a Community Builder for Essex County Fire and Rescue Service.
I have for several years, arranged Network speed dating events across the county and have seen very many successful partnerships formed between organisations.
How does it work?
Speed Networking involves up to 25 or so people from Community support team’s charities or structured organisations.
Sitting in a line opposite to somebody else from the community, you get a total of Just 6 minutes to discuss your roles and work in the community at the same time. The person opposite is telling you of theirs.
After 6 minutes the bell goes (or a still strikingly handsome older Firefighter shouts, “Move on”)
At which point you move on to the next person until you have engaged with all people in the room
This creates the opportunity to make up to 24 new contacts or renew friendships with old contacts
There will be an hour at the end to develop any contacts or potential partnerships.
To ensure the informal atmosphere, there will of course be Tea/Coffee, breakfast and cakes
For the best results, one person from each organisation is ideal.
They can then pyramid the information down to others in their team.
Please let me know if you or a member of your team are interested.
This is a fun and Successful Networking event
The main point being that we meet many people from lots of different organisations,
If you would like book a place at this Free event, can you email me.

* e mail and contact telephone numbers plus permission to copy add to attendees listTo save Business cards I will try to develop a contact list so then all you need is a Highlighter to mark the people you need to follow up.
Feel free to bring along pull-ups or advertising boards to make the event seem more professional
Please also could you help me by forwarding this e-mail to as many of your contacts that you feel might be interested.
We do need new blood so any charity, organisation or community support team would be very welcome.
