Shaking Hands Speed Networking @ Urban Xchange Hub
• Lunch • B2B Networking • Extraordinary Prizes
Our SOLD OUT Meet the Members event is back, offering existing Shaking Hands members and the wider Croydon Professional network the opportunity to get to know one another, talk collaboration, and develop long-term business relationships to benefit the future small-medium community in Croydon.
How does the Speed Networking format work?
On a seat-by-seat rotation, all attendees will have the opportunity to sit opposite fellow Shaking Hands members, and guests, learn about one another's businesses and talk about challenges, opportunities, and potential collaborative projects.
With 40+ attendees, a sponsored prize draw and a delicious lunch in one of Croydon's newest central hubs, it's the perfect midday breather to restart a productive afternoon.
