Posted 19 April 2017 | 0 Comments

Wednesday the 19th April saw the West Cheshire and North Wales Chamber of Commerce host yet another successful networking event, this month at Petty Pool Trust – an activity centre in Northwich, set in 17 acres of Cheshire woodland.

 Guests gathered early at the scenic venue, armed with business cards and conversation. An array of delicious breakfast favourites and hot beverages were available to all in attendance, as provided by the generous venue. After helping themselves to tea, coffee and pastries, delegates were asked to pick a partner and start the Easter hunt!

Linda Walker, Project Manager at Petty Pool Trust had to say this on hosting her first Chamber event “It has been a pleasure to host today’s networking, it’s been great to have so many businesses come along and get involved. I hope to see many of today’s guests again and take from this some business partnerships!”

 Armed with maps and clues, guests had the opportunity to explore the impressive grounds and come face to face with the animals, all whilst forming strong business connections and participating in an adult Easter challenge! The aim of the game was to find all 10 letters hidden around the venue, spelling out an Easter related word, using the clues provided.

With competition in the air and the stakes high, all in attendance got involved and had fun. Each pair took very different strategies, but the winning method was by Dawn Wilce of Absolute Boss and Deana Bates of Simpson Millar LLP who raced to the top, securing themselves a giant Easter egg each!

Speaking after the event Deana said “The event today was insightful and extremely inspiring, to hear about the wonderful work carried out by the charity and see first-hand some of the facilities used to aid their students on their journey”

As all the pairs returned, guests were given the chance to engage in the Chamber’s very own ‘Round the Table’ networking which sees everyone get divided into tables, groups are assigned a captain and then the fun begins!  Every individual is given the opportunity to introduce themselves and give a quick overview of their company before regrouping and starting over again on a new table with different guests. Round the Table networking provides guests with a fantastic networking opportunity and the ability to promote themselves to a large number of people within a short time frame.  

Debbie Bryce, Operations Director, spoke after on behalf of the Chamber “Today was a truly unique and enjoyable event which enabled our members to enjoy networking in a fun and memorable way! I would like to take the time to thank Petty Pool for all their hard work into making today the huge success it was, but also to everyone who came and took part! All the Chamber’s events for 2017 are now on the website so please feel free to come along and expand your business connections!”
