Having been planned as a monthly event, Friday’s Second Mary’s Network Get-Together had had quite a few sign-ups initially, but as temperatures kept dropping and the carnival parties around town rising, these numbers went down again. As always I decided ‘It’ll be fine whichever way it works out’ and so it was - we ended up having an absolutely brilliant time.
In the end there were ten of us, and as always, there was some lovely ‘reconnecting’ of people who had met elsewhere before. I was actually quite happy that some of the guests were not your typical ‘business networkers’, but fascinating retirees instead with a great sense of humor and of course lots of ‘connections’ and useful info to share. Beautiful proof of what I like to repeat ‘Networking will ALWAYS occur in one form or another when open-minded people meet’.
