Corporate Speed Dating – I’m Smitten

3 September 2009 | by Michelle Scott

We are fiercely proud of the links we’ve forged with the local community over the past 3 years and last night I had the opportunity to add to these existing relationships AND satisfy my twin passions – talking and new business.

We are a member of TheBestofHarpenden (www.thebestof.co.uk/Harpenden) an award winning team dedicated to providing everything you need to know about Harpenden.

TheBestOf has been awarded ‘Innovative Business of the Year’ at the 2008 Fast Growth Business Awards, and to be listed 3rd in the current Sunday Times Tech Track 100.

Their in-depth Recommended Business Guide uncovers the real gems of Harpenden and the surrounding area. It’s much more than just a listing – each Business Feature includes contact information and real testimonials written by real local people. You can see ours here.

Last night I attended a speed networking event hosted by TheBestOf, held in Harpenden Public Hall and attended by 30 odd like minded business owners. Armed with a stack of promotional flyers and a box of business cards I was permitted 60 seconds to pitch Asset Resourcing to the person opposite me before switching roles to become the “buyer” and hearing how their business could help me / us. At the ringing of a bell I moved one place to my left and repeated this exchange with a new partner. At the evening’s conclusion even I was talked out, but I left with several promises of business next time they were hiring and a shared understanding that we would all do our utmost to promote each others’ businesses to others as and when the opportunity arose.
