I remember the first large construction event I went along to, there was around 90-100 men attending and myself and one other lady who was an Interior Designer. We decided that as there was only the two of us we would also introduce one other to appropriate other contacts in the industry.
It worked very well and we soon got to know some great contacts that we still work with today. As a result of that we decided to hold a pre-lunch meet up and bring along another lady from within the construction industry so we could then introduce her to the Networking group. The Ladies’ ‘get together’ soon grew to 24 and it was wonderful to enter the Networking event in numbers and help them to meet other compatible contacts to their companies.
The group became a mixed group after 3 years and it has now grown to a group of 270 trusted and reliable partners and we regularly work on projects as a team. It was as a result of this that we felt at Circles there was a huge opportunity to do this on a much larger scale and help companies build strong relationships and provide a comprehensive service to their clients going forward.
