Two informal business networking groups have been set up in Manchester and the North West by Skout PR.
North West & Manchester Media Collaborators is for freelance PR specialists and small PR companies to collaborate and create a pool of highly skilled, self motivated resource that can work together across Manchester in PR, digital media, tech, marketing, b2b and consumer disciplines.
It’s for individual freelancers and creative companies with up to five employees. The intention is to set up regular (quarterly) meetings between the group to develop the network, share ideas and build contacts. We work on the premise of collaboration, not competition. Anyone who fits the bill and wishes to join, or refer the group to others, is more than welcome.
North West Tea N Tech, for business people in Manchester and the North West working in any kind of technology company, from IT to engineering – anything that has tech or technical consulting somewhere at its core.
Here, we’re looking to bring together business managers and senior marketing folk to network openly and build their contacts, find opportunities to partner and increase the potential for referrals within the group.
Anyone working on the business side of technology is welcome. Again the intention is to establish regular meetings for the group, preferably over large mugs of ‘Lancashire Tea’, so watch this space. Please sign up if you are in the business of tech, or feel free to refer the groups to other contacts.
