I was greeted with a warm welcome from Ian and I quickly felt settled into the room by all of the friendly faces. I made some really valuable connections and even picked up a lead! A super relaxed but still professional event in a great venue. An event I will most definitely be attending every month!
Work From Home Space
I’ve attended a few of the TGN’s events now and every time it’s been an enjoyable event! If you’re looking for a networking event which is relaxed with no pressure then I definitely recommend the TGN event on the first Thursday of the month. One of my favourite ones to attend too!!!
Pencil & Coffee
I am an avid networker and whilst it's always nice to help others I found everyone was at TGN to support each other, especially Ian Morris. He went out of his way to make introductions for me and help me feel part of the event.
A fantastic venue and great service from the onsite staff.
The event was definitely busy, with ample opportunity to make new connections and discuss what other people do and how people could help each other in making new connections. I found the choice of venue worked extremely well, enough space to feel comfortably spread out whilst still being intimate enough to allow for people to converse with everyone in the room.
