The spell of good weather made a glorious start to this years series of Netwalks. Shipley Country Park provided the location for a group of regular netwalkers and some new faces. There was certainly plenty of spring in our step as the walk was soon over before we knew it . Everybody enjoyed nature putting on a spring show and were in relaxed mood as the Derby Lodge cafe came into sight . The Netwalking group is gaining momentum and business relationships are getting built.
Feel shy about introducing yourself ? Can't find anything to make small talk about ? Uncomfortable making an elevator pitch ? Not rehearsed your USP ? Why pay to meet people ? Ever avoided a “same old “ local network event ?
Come along on a Netwalk. No formalities. No fixed agendas. Freedom to socialise and speak human. Walk and chat about anything. Rotation system gets you mixing. Build friendships and exercise at the same time. Enjoy the outdoors through the seasons and develop business relationships. Free to attend, just treat yourself to a reward at the end of the walk.
So if you're not a big fan of networking events come and try a Netwalk.
Netwalking with Skylarks will take place at Cromford on 20 April 2011. Starting at 8.00 am and finishing for refreshments at Cromford Mill Cafe.
Spaces are limited to achieve good balance between walkers, leaders and the environment. Booking is therefore essential using our online form here.
I'm really pleased to be leading a walk on15 April to help Hopkins Solicitors from Nottingham, in their support for an incredible local charity, Rutland House School for Parents. Rutland House helps parents of children with mobility and communication difficulties.
David Winnett of Hopkins Solicitors has adopted Skylark Activities idea of netwalking for a group of invited guests to a fun netwalk near Burton Joyce. The two hour walk will raise funds for the charity and will not only involve networking but also competitive wildlife spotting !
Its great to be able to contribute to the Charity's Taking Steps Together Appeal which was launched by their patron Des Moor. Learn more about Rutland House here School for Parents
