Come and join Thurrock Jelly – Thursday 19th May 2011 at Park Inn Thurrock from 10am to 5pm (if you can only make an hour, come for an hour!!!) – if you want to start even earlier, come and join them for networking in Thurrock at the Thurrock Network Group from 8am to 9.30am at The Thurrock Learning Shop (opposite Morrisons in Grays town centre)
A jelly is an opportunity for those who work alone or are self employed to work with others. It’s all about social working. The business world can be a lonely place at times, you may be self employed, work at home, or run your own business. The fact is, you are not on your own!
There are many people that are in exactly the same position as you, and almost certainly in your area, so doesn’t it make sense to get together and share ideas, meet others in the same area, network, and work together for up to a whole day (we know it’s not practical for everyone to be there for the whole day, so come along for as long as you can make it!) once a month?
Bring your laptop and mobile phones if you have them, any ideas that you want to bounce off of others, any challenges that you want to overcome, and share best practice with those around you. It’s the perfect opportunity to make new contacts, learn about other businesses in your area, bounce your ideas off of those around you, and you may even find someone to callaborate with.
It doesn’t matter what your business is, you’re very welcome to come and join in. Come prepared to have a laugh, meet interesting people, learn new things and share knowledge!
Don’t be afraid to talk about challenges that you have, someone else has probably had the same issue, and share how they overcame it. Share your successes with those around you, let them know what has worked well for you in your area, it’s always rewarding to hear about other local businesses succeeding!
Refreshments such as lunch and drinks are available for purchase from the venue
