It’s mid-November and, without a doubt, the Christmas buzz is starting to build once again. Regardless of the wind and rain, the decorations are going up across the regions high streets. Bournemouth Gardens of Light have been switched on and the Alpine Stalls are all set up. The exciting attractions will mean a greater than ever turnout of tourists this year. The town centre will once again be packed with eager shoppers over the Christmas period, a great plus for all of Bournemouth’s businesses. It’s also coming to that time when you need to stay calm, be organised, and think about finding gifts for all the friends and family. However, during this hectic month there are still plenty of opportunities for networking!
Many businesses and organisations will be hosting Christmas parties and – as long as you don’t go heavy on the sherry – these can be an ideal opportunity to meet new people and businesses whilst also building on existing relationships. Sharing spaces with other parties is an excellent opportunity to get to know everyone. You can catch up with colleagues, forge new friendships, let your hair down and have some well-deserved fun. Isn’t this what networking is all about?
The Boardroom Network will be holding our very own X-mas get together on the 17th of December. We are inviting businesses to join us at our White Christmas Lunch at one of our favourite venues, The Italian Villa. It will be the perfect opportunity to escape the office and do some important ‘networking’ whilst tucking into a delicious festive feast from the award-winning Beales Gourmet. All our members are warmly invited and very welcome to bring guests too.
So join us in December to toast the success of the past year whilst enjoying a festive lunch in a very special setting. As Kate Bush once sang “December will be magic again!”
Before then however, we look forward to seeing all our members at our next breakfast event on the 3rd of December at the Hallmark Hotel. See you then!
