Do you hate networking in a room full of people eager to thrust their business card at you and sell you their product?
Frankly I find I have better conversations with people when I’m outdoors. I take time to genuinely find out about them, their family, their latest holiday, why they work in their industry. Crucially not to sell to one another but actively listen.
Netwalks was born out of a desire to meet other business professionals without having to do a hard sell to a room full of people, one by one.
Netwalks also provides an opportunity to get away from the office and get exercise, fresh air and relax. Time away from the computer screen can only ever be a good thing. As well as being good for your physical and mental health it’s also where you find time to think creatively and have those moments of inspiration.
No-one remembers the 60 second pitch over a pint but you do remember laughing in the fresh air with someone.
Tinkadventures runs Netwalks around West Yorkshire. Join us to escape the stress of work, chat with colleagues and make new connections.
Walks will be around 3 miles and be at a leisurely pace, as it’s more important we get to chat than it is to smash out the miles. We will always finish at a local cafe so we can finish chatting over a brew.
In 2020 we are launching a year of Netwalks. All walks start at 9.30am and cost £8 to attend. For that you get 2 hours of friendly chat in the fresh air and a complimentary brew. And a promise we’re not going to talk sales.
If you want to find out where and when we’re running Netwalks check out our Eventbrite page for booking details:
7th February – Holmfirth
16th March – Marsden
Pre registration at walks is essential so that if the weather is too bad we can arrange alternatives.
Bring sensible footwear and a waterproof just in case!
What others have said:
If you like getting away from your desk and doing something different; for you, your team, clients or your events this could be one for you…
What a great idea, meeting new people away from screens and conference / meeting rooms, a different approach to networking. Right up my street; walking, out in the Yorkshire countryside, meeting new people, sharing insights and experiences, what’s not to like.
