Thursday 16th 2017 was the JCI Manchester New Members Evening. Our annual showcase of how we do things and what opportunities are open to people should they wish to join. Historically, It is our most well attended event and this year was no different; selling out just one week after being added to our events list.
On the night we were treated to an arrival drink of a rum based cocktail or gin and tonic then the attendees were free to work the room and catch up with members and non-members alike. For the second drink the JCI board team were on hand to hand out tokens – they were each assigned a mini-group that would come to them to collect the token. This was just a way to ensure that people had a chance to chat to a member of our board about what we got up to at JCI Manchester!
Mingling continued and at about 7pm the canapes came out! We were treated to some of Tattu’s finest dim sum; courgette fritters, duck spring roles, ginger beef dumplings and shitake mushroom dumplings. They were incredible!
There isn’t much else to report apart from the feedback we received post event! Feedback we had from the night was unbelievably positive: 77% saying they loved it and asked when the next one is, 15% saying they were pleasantly surprised. 8% said it wasn’t quite right for them. Can’t please everyone! We would ask that you give us another chance though 😉
We invite anyone who is a non-member to reach out and get in touch if JCI Manchester is something you think you like to get more involved with. The New Members Evening is a very small sample of the opportunities on offer. We will be doing a follow up event to the New Members evening some point in the near future, which will be a chance to meet in smaller groups and chat to one of our board members about JCI. Watch this space for information on that!
We want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who came to the event and we hope to see you at some point in the future. Our next event is a Breakfast Briefing and Networking Masterclass with Will Kintish! We recommend you book onto this as soon as possible because we anticipate high numbers for this given Will’s reputation around Manchester! You can book on to that event here >>> https://www.fatsoma.com/jci-manchester-/gmsz3st6/breakfast-briefing-networking-mastery-with-will-kintish
