Thought I'd introduce myself, we're based in York, but offer courier services nationwide.
Homesick ex-Harrogate & Boroughbridge person here...if only I could be on the right side of the Pennines. I will taste Betty's Fat Rascals again...
You lucky lot!
Send me the money and I will do the tasting for you. Even sat down at a table if you wish.
Afternoon all, I'm based just outside Harrogate. Any networking plans in place in our area?
Paganum Produce, Malham, Nr Skipton, North Yorkshire and we specialise in Yorkshire Dales produce, beef, lamb, pork all from the Yorkshire Dales...
Hi Ripon here - well four miles out of Ripon if I'm honest - we are all taking the day off on Thursday and taking the grandchildren to the Yorkshire Show - I expect it will rain again. though we hope it holds off until the end of the day for a change
Ooo not far from me, we are about 5 miles away from Ripon. Which direction are you in, we are just off the A1.
Yeah I wondered this too, anything planned as we'd be interested?
Cross Hills is my business and home village; it is placed just inside North Yorkshire near Skipton, but also edges onto West Yorkshire and Lancashire hence the name of Cross Hills as three counties converge.
Riddlesden here, with an office in Keighley.
What is your business?
Hi everyone. Seen as I'm about to move from sunny South Africa to not so sunny Thirsk, I think I almost qualify to post in the North Yorkshire sub-forum.
I'm looking forward to getting to know you all.
How about we arrange to just meet in a pub that is central; perhaps Skipton or Northallerton. Bring business cards and arrange to meet in one area.
Any suggestions? We want to keep costs down to a minimum for networking as does everyone else.
From Harrogate (and proud!)
I'm from Yeadon, Leeds, close to N. Yorks, not quite though.
How about we make a meet up point in a mutually convenient 'mid way' point such as Skipton/Northallerton and have a pub 'tea' after work. That should cost us nothing other than petrol/transport and a snack and drink. We could bring business cards and do a 60 second presentation about our businesses, swop details and keep in touch by email/phone after that. It would be good for business i.e. referrals and support. We could meet every month afterwards at the same place if it is successful.
anything happen with the planned meet?
I based in York and work for a portable building company called Britcab.
Two businesses based in Thirsk, but live in Middlesbrough :redface:
Sorry I kicked off the thread and just come back saw messages.
1. I am based in Harrogate and run a Interim Admin and Marketing Support business which covers all aspects of admin support to businesses onsite if in Harrogate District and virtually for other businesses. The difference to hiring V95 to a temp is that I am committed to the contract and I learn your business through supporting so can step in easily at times of holidays and sickness. I become the PA's Pal so when stressed with very difficult deadlines to meet she knows she can call on my services as overflow and not feel threatened.
2.I also offer ecommerce / cms site update services.
Thought I would get this in as my TomTom died this morning in the middle of Leeds so I have been riding around the ring road for last 20 mins and missed the BNI that I was invited to. So I am networking with you guys!!!!
3. I think it would be a good idea to have a network event perhaps December for a drink and card swapping session.
Any takers for co-ordinating.... Promise I will know where to go!
I find that being a member of the BNI has brought me a substantial amount of work. Also once you join and are committed to supporting the group you find other 'network' doors opening.
chatting online is okay but very time consuming and trying to organise a get together when we are so far spread is not a task I am prepared to put the time in to organise as my time is very short.
I hope you find someone to sort out a network get together. Otherwise look at the BNI website for the UK. Just google it.
