Working for Intech Telecom, a local telecommunications company I am no stranger to networking.
For this reason I chose to attend the JCI Southampton open night networking event at Boulangerie Victor Hugo coffee shop in January located on the High Street in Southampton, with a view to build up my business contacts and to socialise with people on the same wave length.
Must say the event was well organised and I was warmly welcomed into a great atmosphere full of likeminded people. Coffee was good too!
They say first impressions count and the organisers for JCI Southampton achieved this exceptionally.
This spurred me on to sign up, seemed a no brainer and have already built up a few contacts. Since then have attended a speed networking event, again met some interesting people, particularly the Operations Director for Costa Coffee. Have I mentioned I like / love coffee J
Big thank you to Célestine Onomo and Natalie Hutchins for organising the events and for making me feel welcomed. Very proud to now be a JCI Southampton member, I have the badge to prove it! Looking forward to the wine tasting event on 17th March and the many more networking events to come.
Carl Thompson – Operations Director, Intech Telecom
