The Sheffield Firm Networking

Full Description

The Sheffield Firm – Alan Fenn

I help run The Firm and host the Sheffield Firm network meetings at The Milestone, 84 Green Lane, Sheffield S3 8SE. We set up the businesses in November, 2010, and we didn’t know what would happen, who would attend, or if it would work.

We have grown our group and developed into more areas, attracting more and more people and going from strength to strength. We are now planning to expand further and start a 2nd group in Rotherham, a 2nd group in Chesterfield, a ladies group here in Sheffield and  a Nottingham group and a Derby group as well. We keep it fresh, simple, with no-ties, and it works.

The Sheffield Firm meeting runs every other Friday 7am for a 7.30am start and finishes at 9am —including a fantastic breakfast and two hours of networking for just £10. Even though we hold four meetings at different locations throughout Yorkshire, people are welcome to attend any or all of the meetings. There’s no membership, no fees, you can come alone or in a group and you don’t even need to have your own business.The meeting welcomes all.

We always hold an “ice-breaker” to put people at ease. For example 12 people sit around each table, with a designated host per table and each person hands over their business card. We then pair up business cards and they need to get to know each other for five minutes—who, where, when, how and what they do—then they pitch for their company, on their behalf, to the rest of the table.

Whilst other membership groups may struggle with numbers, we ALWAYS promote other non membership networking groups. Our ethos is a networking group run by the people for the people. Pop along to see what all the fuss is about !!!
