Network Learn Connect #NLCNN : BIG BBQ in Kettering @ The Yards

The Yards Kettering

4th Sept 2018

As we launch into Event Seven for #NLCNN (Northamptonshire), this event is something very special! A celebration of the speed at which Network Learn Connect #NLC has grown, the feedback we have received and the fact the event has in just four short months, been recognised as a Finalist for the #SMENorthants Best Networking Event Award

Remembering that it is YOU, the attendees that make the event what it is and that we just facilitate the events, we want to connect even more of you & invite you to bring along your friends to this BIG OUTDOOR #NLC BBQ event.

[ DON’T PANIC : We have cover AND a contingency plan in case the English weather doesn’t hold out! ] 

The format is a little different for this one, but still has all the elements of the original format, with some extras!

We wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has attended Network Learn Connect previously at any of our locations, to invite and celebrate the success of so many awesome local businesses who have also been recognised in the #SMENorthants AwardsAfter all it is the taking part and recognition that is important. Winning is just a nice bonus! And we are excited to announce we are launching in The Yards Kettering as a monthly event for the HQ of the Network Learn Connect #NLC Brand

#NLC is an event series, designed to help people NETWORK LEARN & CONNECT with a specific intention. Which will help them to generate more business locally, by meeting up with their online connections in a physical location. We find this is best done in the evenings with food & drink. So why not join us at a local event soon ? If there isn’t one locally – why not talk to us about hosting one?

We are bringing together 100s if not 1000s of professionals to network in a relaxed environment with a handful of speakers sharing actionable insights and taking the LinkedIn & Social world OFFLINE in Northamptonshire & now even further afield!! 

If you want to Network with some of the brightest minds in the business world, and to get more business & referrals, be sure to BOOK ON HERE, so we can let you know as we announce each new event in Northamptonshire & the surrounding areas.
