ISSBA Event Review - November MTM Networking Event

Review of November Meet the Members Networking Event written by Chris Chenery, Chenery Creative.

November ...

Chris Chenery RGBWell known as that time of year when people start roasting chestnuts on an open fire in readiness for singing all the Christmas songs… 

Well, that wasn’t quite the case on November 27th on board The Allen Gardiner in Ipswich Haven Marina. We were certainly afforded a very warm welcome, as we enjoyed our monthly Meet The Members Networking event, with the log burner working to full effect! It was nicely toasty. Despite major traffic chaos in Ipswich that morning, we had a good 20 of us gathered, to be treated to homemade pie, pigs in blankets and other goodies for a time of networking and hearing about the river cruises that can be enjoyed year round (with the exception of Christmas Day!). On this particular morning, we were moored, so we could have more people attending, but it would make a delightful trip for the 12 people that could normally be accommodated for a dining cruise. It was good to see both familiar and new faces come along, and have a chance to further business contacts with each other and get to know other members better to understand what they do - as that’s how networking helps grow business.

We also heard a bit more about ISSBA's charity of the year - Over The Rainbow Children's Charity.

We don’t have our regular MTM event in December, but instead we have an informal pre-Christmas drinks evening at The Dove Street Inn on December 18th - where we’d love to see anyone that would like to join us from 7pm onwards.

Keep an eye on our website and newsletters to see the events we have coming up in 2020, and we look forward to meeting you at any of them.
