Join the Dots (part 2)

This event has now ended.
20 May 2024 14:00 - 16:30

Welcome to 'Join the Dots', a series of events hosted by Andy HallChris Marsh and Andrew Thorp (pictured top-to-bottom). We are three business professionals who formed a long-standing friendship through the Manchester networking scene.

Why 'Join the Dots'?

The name is based on a concept of networking that works like this:

When you meet someone new that's the equivalent of 'collecting a dot'. But the real magic starts when you find ways to create meaningful connections between them - yes, join the dots!

So, the aim of ‘JTD’ is to facilitate that process; making introductions but helping you find ways to create value through these connections.

But that's just the half of it…

These events are perhaps best described as a ‘conversational workshop’!

There’s a strong learning component (and hopefully a healthy dose of inspiration), but it’s not as costly or time-consuming as a normal workshop. We put a lot of thought into helping you take something valuable away from the interactive learning section, but there’s plenty of time too for relaxed conversation – and dot-joining!

Areas we cover in the learning section:

  • effective networking
  • brand-building (storytelling)
  • personal growth and well-being
