The Supper Club

If you would like to enjoy a touch of networking, a nice dinner and the chance to make some new friends and island based contacts then get yourself along to The Supper Club at Mood Beach.

The idea is this: the event is relatively speaking cheap to attend, it’s only 19.95€ and that is for your two course meal, two glasses of wine, water and bread and butter (in other words, it’s the Thursday night Menu del Noche offer at Mood). There are one or two speakers (normally a charity will talk about their work, and a business will talk about theirs, and it changes at each event), the chance to get to know new people and also the chance to promote your business if that is what you want to do. The evening starts at 7pm and is normally finished by 9/9.30pm so not too late for the winter nights. The next event will be on Thursday 10th December and they are already taking bookings for that night, so email info@moodbeach.com to secure your spot. If the last one (seventy people attended the November event) was anything to go by then this is the season for some networking!

Friendly, informal networkingNetworking needn’t be frightening, approach it with an open mind, remember to stay authentically true to yourself, perhaps arm yourself with five opening questions that you can try out to get the conversation going, or perhaps a joke, and step in. If you need one then ask for an introduction, go to the organiser and say “Can you introduce me to….” and get them to help you. The good thing is that at a networking event other people are there with the same aim as you so you don’t need to feel strange about talking to a complete stranger, and remember, you get out what you put in. Don’t forget your business cards. The networking doesn’t finish there either, the next day you need to send a message to the people you connected to: either as an email, a Facebook request, a text message, a phone call, whatever seems appropriate to the situation. Get to it!
