Networking can play a valuable part in running your business. Currently, in Edinburgh, you could probably have a fulltime job just going to networking events. They vary in format, structure and size, but they all have one thing in common – it can fill you with dread.
It’s not easy to open up to anyone, let alone, colleagues and managers about your own mental health, and unfortunately, it can still be seen as inappropriate to talk about depression or anxiety within work when the focus should be on sales and targets.
Great event, positive atmosphere and good mix of professionals. Highly recommended.
Great event, lovely friendly people, superb venue, and well organised. Well worth coming even if I don’t meet customers I can directly work with. People know people who might need me.
Really enjoyable, round table discussions work well and very interesting to hear different ideas from other groups on the same topic. It was a very good host for this and kept things on schedule and in control easily.
A very thought provoking agenda at a wonderful venue
