Powered Up Business Networking was started by Milo Dunne, a businessman from Ipswich, Suffolk. Our business networking events started for a multitude of reasons. It was born from a few local Suffolk based business people meeting up for a few drinks once a month but after a while, they started to die out.
As a business owner, it’s not always easy to get out and meeting up with other business people was a way of working but still socializing. It is not always easy to get to a lot of business networking events, some start ridiculously early or are just not convenient for parents of young children. So, Milo wanted to get out once a month for a few drinks, knowing that he wasn’t the only business owner with school run duties and thus, decided to create something more formal.
The format of most networking events is very rigid and often, only about business. The speaker is looking to sell and you have to go through a 30 minute pitch, it can get quite tedious. The idea behind Powered Up Business Networking is to get the attendees to know each other, the actual people, not the businesses.
We want everyone to have fun as we believe that in having fun and getting to know each other, proper human to human relationships are formed. This then leads to a stronger bond of businesses as well.
Each month, we have a speaker who provides real value. We want everyone to walk away with something that every business can use to grow.
We want everyone to:
Meet other awesome businesses.
Build meaningful relationships.
Learn things of genuine value.
Enjoy the evening with no pitches.
Most importantly, have fun!
