1st Easingwold and Thirsk Business Network Meeting

Tuesday 26th February saw the first ever FREE business network meeting between members of the YO61NERs (Easingwold area) and members of The Thirsk & District Business Association plus other businesses from both areas.The Carpenters Arms Felixkirk provided not only the venue but very generous hospitality with excellent light refreshments. Many people I spoke to were very impressed with the Carpenters Arms and some from the Network meeting even managed a tour of their marvellous facilities.Over eighty business people attended from the Easingwold and Thirsk Areas meeting new and old acquaintances, one of the good things about these network meetings is that you will find someone you know and will not end up on your own in a corner. Laid back and relaxed, that was the message everyone conveyed to me, a network meeting without any stress more like a gentle unwind with a coffee, tea or a pint of ale. The time passed unusually quickly and many were unable to speak to everyone there but there is always next time to catch up with the others. There was also prize draw for a couple of bottles of champagne. A tremendous success for all who went and I know many will return for the next event, keep an eye out in the Tiser for details.If only all business network meetings could be like this…I think this shows the potential for future free business networking meetings for the Easingwold and Thirsk area, a number of venues in the locale have offered their premises for future networking events. It is hoped there will be another Easingwold meets Thirsk event in either late spring or early summer one calendar month after the next YO61NERs network event.I do hope that those businesses which have so far been unable to attend these networking events will try to make time in their busy schedules and allow a couple of hours to meet other businesses face to face and all for just the price of a bit of fuel and some business cards. A very simple decision!Finally I would like to thank Deborah Whitwell and her team at The Carpenters Arms Felixkirk for being the perfect hosts, Jo Burgess of the YO61NERs and Guy Baragwanath of The Thirsk & District Business Association and all those who turned out to make a cold night in February quite a memorable event.
