Last night, Thursday 8 August 2013, I attended Network Five at the Gilded Lily which was organised by Cumbria Chamber of Commerce. Mike Morris of the Chamber welcomed everyone and ensured we were well looked after.
It was an informal evening of networking with lots of local businessmen and women attending to discuss their own businesses and meet new people. I met lots of new contacts from all kinds of businesses, such as solicitors, will writers, a sign language tutor and a quarry owner.
Everyone was keen to speak to each other and were interested to find out what their business entailed. It was also a great opportunity to talk about the services David Allen Recovery Solutions offer and proved to be successful producing two potential clients.
I enjoyed some delicious food of spring rolls, samosas, potato wedges and olives along with drinks.
Overall it was a brilliant evening and I would definitely recommend attending future events run by the Chamber of Commerce details of which can be found at www.cumbriachamber.co.uk.
