Moxie is delighted to be heading to Notcutts Garden Centre for their next networking event
Moxie Mingle is networking differently – different venues, – different people – different times.
There’s no hard sell, no referrals required, no membership, no commitment, just pay as you go. Open to all sectors of business, from sole traders to large organisations, male and female. Moxie is about making connections.
Moxieis run by Wendy Green, founder of ILoveBramhall.com & ILoveCheadleHulme.com
It’s a relaxed gathering point for people to informally meet, find potential contacts to work with, share work or simply stories over a drink – whether that’s an evening chardonnay or a morning cappuccino!
Guests are treated to a drink on arrival and nibbles and events generally lasts around 2 hours.
Bring along plenty of business cards and leaflets, as all guests will be given the opportunity to place their literature in a goody style bag for everyone to take away on departure.

A. “Networking” can be scary and sometimes a daunting word, it shouldn’t be..think of it as a collaboration of like-minded people, who at any time may want your services and you might need theirs.

A. Maybe, we don’t operate any kind of lock-out, it is possible that multiple participants from the same industry could be in attendance, but don’t see them as the enemy, Moxie is the ideal place to find someone you can work with or bounce ideas off.
