This business networking event is great for people in the Harpenden area with a business or looking to start one. Our meetings are friendly and relaxed and you will find lots of help and support, plenty of new contacts and some great guest speakers.
Our event has open networking time from 9.30am -10am ( so don’t worry if you can’t get there before 10am) and then we start at 10am with introductions and the chance to share what help you need and what your business is all about. After a short break for more refreshment we will hear from our guest speaker or we will deliver a mini workshop.
This month our guest speaker is Paula Mitchell from Hummingbird on Squad Mentality – Building a team to make your business stronger.
If we were working for large company we’d have a marketing department, a finance department, human resources, IT etc. However, most of us are self-employed individuals, but this doesn’t stop us building a strong team around us and finding like-minded skilled collaborators to work with and fulfil these roles. Paula will give you some tips on how to grow your team and in turn grow your business.
Hummingbird provide business support to growing companies and for them it’s all about the collaboration and working alongside companies to help them achieve their goals. They have qualified HR consultants ensuring companies are compliant, employees are happy and provide business advice; bookkeepers working mainly with Xero and Sage; project managers and experienced administrators. The benefit of using Hummingbird is that they have lots of experience of working with other businesses, so can bring this extra knowledge to your company.
