Networking in Berkshire was created by Chris Lunn in 2009 as a result of him starting his Marketing Consultancy Digity and looking for ways to meet potential new clients and suppliers.  One of the first events he attended was a networking lunch and whilst there he met a couple of people who subsequently invited him along to a host of other events.  Within that following week, Chris had eaten 5 cooked breakfasts, drank 24 cups of coffee, given 6 micro-pitches to strangers and had a suit full of other peoples business cards.

As a result, he launched a brand new website which would help keep him up-to-date with where his new local contacts were going to be and Networking in Berkshire was born.  The website initially attracted contacts who Chris met on his travels and as a result of opening this up for everyone to take advantage of, it's grown from strength-to-strength.

The objectives of the website remain the same from day 1:

  • Enable people to find details of networking events taking place
  • Enable networking group owners to advertise their events for free
  • Enable members to join and connect to each other for free
  • Enable members to further establish themselves and their services through the use of our online blog, photos and videos sections

Around the time Chris set-up Networking in Berkshire he met Keith Grover who had the same vision for Surrey.  As a result, not long after the Berkshire site launched, Networking in Surrey soon followed.  The guys meet-up every other month and look at their usage stats and see where improvements can be made.  In 2011 Networking in Bucks went live and is being developed at the moment.

If you would like to see a service to cover your County, get in touch.  They can provide the infrastructure and heck of a lot of insight from years gone by and you could become the face of networking for your county by helping other people to find and market events taking place.  As you can see on this website, there are also commercial opportunities via our advertising model to cover the costs of running the service.

If you have any ideas, let Chris know via his profile page or:  chris@networkinginberkshire.co.uk
