Welcome to the Twilight Networking Meetings.
Zoom-based Twilight Networking Meetings are held every fortnight on a Thursday, and will last for one hour each.
ONLY 40 E-TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE FOR EACH MEETING – SEE BELOW:
EACH MEETING WILL BE STRICTLY LIMITED TO A MAXIMUM OF 40 ATTENDEES ONLY!
5.45pm – arrive for informal networking (at random you will be put in to smaller ‘breakout rooms’ prior to the meeting starting, for 15 minutes of informal networking)
6pm – meeting begins with short introduction and welcome
6.05pm – 10 minute presentation (educational, not a sales pitch!) by a special guest (if you would like to present to the group, let me know)
6.15pm – the 60 SECOND introduction round! So practice your pitch, keep it to the point, keep it punchy, make it memorable and don’t waffle!
7pm (approx) – meeting finishes
With up to 40 people in the room, it is going to be faced-paced, energetic, and lots of fun. Each pitch must be limited to no more than 60-seconds to ensure we finish within the hour.
It would be good for you to come prepared with a JPG version of your business card and any leaflets, to post within the chat section of Zoom – a bit like passing business cards in a physical meeting, it will allow other attendees to keep a copy of your card.
Here’s what some of our regular attendees say about the Twilight Evening Networking meetings…
I attend the Twilight Networking Meeting because it gives me an opportunity to promote my travel service to a wider audience.
I find this event particularly useful during the current Covid situation, where it is difficult to arrange face-to-face meetings with prospective customers; this network gives me the ability to meet many people in a short space of time, and there are no geographical limits.
If you are looking to promote your business, I would thoroughly recommend Twilight, especially as it is unique to other networking groups in that it is at the end of the day, so will definitely bring in new faces that may not be able to attend the early morning groups.
I really enjoy the Twilight networking. It has so many diverse businesses and its for men and women. I have had some good connections and did a Facebook live with one of the ladies from the group.
The 10 minute talks are always very informative and interesting. Really enjoy the small breakout rooms as you get to know more about the other people on a personal level. Neil runs these networks with integrity and authenticity. I would highly recommend coming to to a meeting.
I started attending Twilight Networking a while ago. I have really enjoyed the experience and connected with some great businesses which I wouldn’t have met otherwise. It’s a structured, efficient way to network from the comfort of your own home. It’s very well organised and there is a chance to get to know the other participants in more depth.
I enjoy learning more about the wide range of businesses that attend. I have found it to be a supportive and friendly group. I often find the timing of networking, makes it difficult for me to attend, but this fits in nicely either after seeing clients during the day, or before the evening ones.
I would say it works well for new businesses as an introduction to the benefits of networking as well as more established businesses with a wider network.
The Twilight Networking meetings have always played a meaningful role in my business development throughout lockdown.
As they are always arranged in the earlier evenings they are very useful to work my daily arrangements around and I find the first 15 minutes allocated to networking in smaller breakout rooms valuable as you can connect with other businesses in a more individual manner.
The host is always incredibly supportive to those who attend and it’s clear that he takes it seriously that all get their opportunity to present themselves and profession. (Just to bear in mind: A timer may be threatened)
Would definitely recommend, particularly for those who cannot network through daytime hours.
Erin Brookes Doolan
I network with several different networking clubs regularly and find them all beneficial both to my business and personally, both of these factors are equally as important.
With Twilight being in the evenings I see some of the people I know from morning networking but it does brings in a set of new people for whom mornings are often difficult to attend.
Twilight feels relaxed and friendly and is very well run by Neil who will help absolutely anyone with anything . I also like that there is no pressure put on anyone to attend and in the true spirit of networking you are never sold to.
As regular attendee of the Twilight zoom meetings I thoroughly recommend these networking meetings to local business owners. I find the timing of these meetings much more convenient than the usual early morning “breakfast” zoom meetings and there is a wide spread of businesses to network with.
I have made some very good contacts by attending this group. It is a must for anyone who is seriously interested in local networking, especially in these difficult times.
Twilight network meetings are fun, superbly organised and strike the right balance of informal but also purposeful.
We have already made a number of useful contacts from a range of industries and attracted some new clients. I would highly recommend giving Twilight a try, you are certain of a warm welcome.
It’s a great experience attending the Twilight Networking sessions. Neil is a natural and enthusiastic host and makes you feel very welcome.
I’ve met so many lovely people. I’ve had quite a few 1:1 follow up chats and these have resulted in some great ideas and collaborative work . It’s structured, but informal, with breakout rooms, a 10 minute presentation and then the quick fire introductions.
If you’re new to networking or struggled in the past meeting a bunch of new people in a room then come along – you’ll be put at ease and made to feel so welcome!
I have been attending the Twilight Networking meeting since it started and have always found it to be uplifting and positive. Neil runs a tight ship, which has really encouraged attendees to think about their 1 minute promotional pitch so that it is clear, concise and engaging.
The attendees are a great group of people, happy to connect and refer business to each other. Neil also runs a positive, high energy facebook group so the networking can continue between meetings.
If you are looking for a virtual evening meeting, filled with encouraging business owners, look no further. Be prepared to book your spot quickly because, quite rightly, people don’t want to miss out.
I would like to thank Neil for the amazing effort in organising all of the Twilight meetings. Since I have join I have been able to meet new people, in other services, that actually benefited me and ways I didn’t expect.
Sometimes its hard to get the time from a busy day but everything I join I always learn something new. It is a very friendly environment with no pressure, and Neil is a great help to make you feel welcome.
