October Biz Lunch
The October Business lunch, held on Wednesday, 26th October was a great success. New and returning members came together for an afternoon of networking at the Brasserie Flo restaurant inBarcelona.
Guests were greeted with a welcome cava and canapés, where they spent an hour getting to know one another. The ‘meet and greet’ was followed by a sit-down lunch in a more intimate setting where members could engage in more in-depth conversations with their peers.
The highlight of the afternoon came when Jonathan Goodman, Development Director forSpainfor the Spectrum IFA Group (Independent Financial Advisers), sponsors of the Biz Lunch, addressed the group about the ever-changing face of the event. “We must consider options to make the Business Lunch more successful,” he said. “We are currently researching ways to reduce the cost of the lunch, including working with the venue to find lower-priced alternatives for the meal, without compromising the standard.” He also encouraged existing participants to take a more active role in recruiting new members. “Bringing in new members benefits us all. Every new person is a potential new client for each and every one of us and a valuable business contact.”
