Business networking creates a splash at the end of 'dry' January

Organisers of a keynote business networking event believe the end of dry January offered the perfect excuse to raise a glass in celebration of the group’s fifth anniversary last night.

LINK networking group was launched in 2013 and has become a regular feature in the Midlands’ business calendar.

“We felt that there was a gap in the market at the time,” comments Richard Griffiths, a Partner at law firm Higgs & Sons who along with Paul Varley, Sales Director at The Liquidity Club, came up with the concept of LINK.

“The idea was to offer an environment where professionals could get together to chat in an informal setting with a view to exploring business opportunities with each other.”

LINK quickly went on to become a regular fixture in the business calendar with up to 60 professionals and business owners attending each monthly meeting.

“As a direct result of LINK, hundreds of new relationships have been formed and a vast array of business has completed,” states Paul Varley. “We believe this has directly benefited the West Midlands and indeed the wider economy.”

Richard Griffiths concludes: “LINK moved to a new venue the first event of the year – Primitivo in Birmingham where over 100 people got together to network and share ideas. And for those celebrating the end of dry January, the first drink was on LINK.”

The next LINK Networking event will be held at Primitivo on Tuesday 27 March. For more details or to book a place, contact Sarah Cornick via
