Networking lunch at Las Iguanas a great success!

Posted 16 May 2018 | 0 Comments

Yesterday (15th May) the WCNW Chamber of Commerce teamed up with Las Iguanas Chester to hold another superb lunch, after last years success.

Over 40 delegates met at Las Iguanas, Chester for a networking lunch with fellow Chamber members. The event started with general networking time during which delegates had the chance to meet with new and old Chamber contacts and connect with businesses from the local area.

After delegates had networked with one-another, they were then seated ready for our speaker of the day, Nicky Owen from North Clwyd Animal Rescue. Nicky spoke to delegates about the fantastic work that they carry out on a daily basis, outlining the story of how NCAR became a Charity through her Mums love of animals! Nicky also spoke to delegates about how they can help out with the Charity, as they rely fundraising to help with their £1,000 daily costs that go into running the animal rescue.

Gary Began from Jackson Fire & Security said: ‘Today’s event was a great way to network informally over a great lunch, it definitely takes the stigma out of how many people think networking events run. Nicky from NCAR was a great speaker and spoke about an extremely interesting topic; after today’s networking I will be registering to walk some of the Charities dogs when I’m out with my own!’

After Nicky had spoken to the group, guests were then served a delicious 2 course meal of smoked chiplote chicken burritos or black bean & beetroot burger followed by a favourite of last year- Dulce De Leche macadamia cheesecake!

After food was served and enjoyed by all, delegates then enjoyed a last spot of networking before heading off to carry on with busy days!

Jenny Davidson, Membership Support & Events manager at the Chamber, said: ‘Today was a great event, attended by great delegates and companies. Thank you to Las Iguanas, Chester, for once again hosting our members, the food was outstanding, as always. Thank you also to Nicky from North Clwyd Animal rescue, for speaking to our delegates about the work that do you, your story was extremely interesting and great to listen to! I look forward to welcoming our delegates back to another networking event very soon.’

Our next networking event is our ‘Round The Table Networking Fun with a Twist at Surf Snowdonia’ on June 6th, we hope to see you there!
