Many partaking of this opportunity are repeat customers; and over the years, there has been one marriage, a few engagements and many long-term relationships springing from the dating sessions. The first game paired men and women seated at the same table, with each writing five facts about themselves, but one had to be a falsehood.

Well organised and informative. I have found the opportunities to network second to none.

Head of Service Development, University Hospital of North Midlands It is often difficult to get in front of decision makers and major influencers during our normal working day.
It was therefore highly rewarding to have the opportunity to have a 2 day forum where we were amongst so many key decision makers. The event organisers were extremely professional and helpful and the run up to the event was smooth and problem free. The event itself ran like clockwork with the event staff assisting us to ensure that our needs were met along with the delegates needs, making sure that planned business meetings were attended by the delegates during the forum.
The whole atmosphere over the two days was excellent being very friendly but still maintaining a business like attitude. Director, Nottinghamshire Health Informatics Service Well done guys, general feeling is that the company has stepped up with this event.

I really enjoyed both days and I am very impressed with the whole event. Speakers, audiences, discussions and your teams were simply brilliant. Your organisational ability, time keeping and team work was very impressive and NHS leaders can learn a lot from you all. I want to thank everyone for two wonderful days of my life. I was encouraged by the enthusiasm to improve the NHS. It wasn’t a model I had seen before but I think it worked well. The contacts I made were useful and appropriate.
It was much better. The venue was ideal, the food was fabulous and the delegates and staff were friendly and polite. Very informative, inspiring and enjoyable.

It was a fine time to be out and about with a fly rod. However, although the drought had been broken definitively enough with rain and high water in late September, it was surprising how quickly some of the streams now reverted to being low and clear. This was particularly true about the Lugg, a stream on which I tend to be happier when that famous greyish stain is apparent in the water.

Round robin[ edit ] In the round robin model of speed networking attendees meet each other sequentially. The pairings are therefore random. Chairs are often organized in two circles or facing rows of desks. The host calls for the beginning of the meeting — often by use of a bell or buzzer — and the persons introduce themselves, taking turns to give a brief summary of business history and goals. Often business cards are exchanged and possibly additional information for a follow up meeting.
Then either the inner or outer circle sitters — or the front or back line of desks — would move to the next space.
