TESIMONIALS

What others say

Great event, lovely friendly people, superb venue, and well organised. Well worth coming even if I don’t meet customers I can directly work with. People know people who might need me.

I have been to many networkings, recently one I attended had several videos played by the members that is not networking. I just received a lovely message from a member to say thank you for me sharing relevant information regarding grants and a growth group that could help one of the members and that she felt it was true networking.

I really enjoy networking with Edinburgh Connections. I have always come away from each meeting making valuable connections, learning something new and having had a really enjoyable time. Colin, Bart and Anna do a brilliant of job of keeping organized and to time, with plenty of humour thrown in as well. If you want to join a networking group - this is a great one!
