‘MYnetwork’ stands for Mid Yorkshire Net; you can find us on Twitter (http://bit.ly/ns9e7i) and Linked In (http://linkd.in/MYnetwork). MYnetwork is a friendly and informal network of business people across Calderdale, Kirklees and beyond. My network is sponsored by ‘The Media Centre’, ‘The Mid Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce’, ‘Ramsdens Solicitors LLP’ and lastly us (ME Consultancy Ltd/Smiles). The daytime meetings are often held at Café Ollo in The Media Centre and we provide a SMS reminder service to inform members of all the relevant information people attending the event may need such as start time and date. Evening meetings will usually be held at a local business within the Kirklees or Calderdale area. For example, the next evening event will be held at the launch of the ‘Huddersfield Food Festival’ on the 11/08/11 at 5.30pm.
The overall aim of MyNetwork’ is to strenthen the business community and to get business people together. The whole ethos of the event is to have fun, chat about topics of interest and swap business cards in a friendly and informal environment. We love being a partner of MYnetwork as it helps us meet with potential new customers and it helps generate more business within the area.
The first event, sponsored by local legal firm Ramsdens Solicitors LLP, was held at the Kirklees Business Conference at the Galpharm Stadium back in September 2010 and was an immediate success with many attendees requesting subsequent events. This prompted Sinead Sopola Marketing Manager at Ramsdens to organise an event co-opting both SMileS and The Media Centre to help and later become partner of this network. Since then the group has taken off and been a great success. Feel free to learn more about Mynetwork and current events we have coming up via Twitter or Linked In, we always look forward to meeting new faces at the events so why not come on down and see what where all about at our next meeting on the 20/7 at 10am at the Media Centre, Huddersfield.
