We know that not everyone can attend our successful lunchtime events, so that’s why we bring to you our evening event of ‘After Hours’. The meetings are held on the 2nd Thursday of the month at the Hampton by Hilton in Stockton.
The events start at 6pm with a buffet on arrival along with coffee/tea/soft drinks. You are more than welcome to purchase alcoholic beverages from the bar.
For anyone that has attended our other meetings you will know that they are very relaxed & friendly with the opportunity to build relationships in a non-pressured environment. After Hours is very relaxed too, but with some structure to the event, which will include open networking, a presentation, around the table networking, brainstorming, success stories & one to one networking.
