Relaxed, sociable networking events

Relaxed, sociable networking events

No 60 second intro's here

Networking is essential when it comes to getting your business to where you want it.

However we network a little differently. There’s no dress code or awkward 60 second intro. Instead MPWR members and non-members alike get to know like-minded businesswomen by having a relaxed chat.

Grab a glass of something, or a cuppa, and join us in what we do best.

In person networking events

Network with other businesswomen in mid morning and evening events in York.

What happens at in person networking

In person it goes something like this:

  • Arrive at the venue from 15 mins prior to our start time. Do feel free to also arrive later on.  We get that not everyone can make a whole session.
  • Your host will welcome you. 
  • Visit the bar and give your name telling them you are here for MPWR Networking.
  • Choose your welcome drink. 
  • There will be goody bags set out for you to add your business cards, leaflets, samples, goodies to (if you wish to)
  • Once in our space, chat to the other women there, work the room, move around, talk to as many as you like/as possible! If you ever feel ‘stuck’ or unable to join new conversations, just find your host and she will help (we have many others that will help too, we really aren’t a bad bunch!)
  • Before you leave don’t forget to grab a goody bag.

Online networking events

No breakfast meet-ups for us! We host a mid-morning networking once a month.

What happens in an online networking session

Online it goes something like this:

  • Our waiting room opens 15 mins before the official start time for you to get logged in and all set up.
  • Your host welcomes
  • You are assigned to an online ‘breakout room’ in small groups for 10/15 minutes or so.
  • In the breakout rooms, just chat, share what you’re up to and ask questions. You have plenty of time to talk about other things, just as you would during face-to-face networking.
  • Towards the end of each session an on-screen notification tells you that you’re about to be whizzed into another break out room to chat with some different guests. Or that everyone is coming back to the ‘waiting room area’ for a break.
  • Halfway through we have a short break.
  • We then open things up so you can choose your next breakout room and who you’d like to chat with. This gives you the chance to have 1-2-1s, meet people you haven’t spoken with yet, or form larger groups if you wish.

And that’s it. No stilted 60 second intros, no pushy sales and no dress code.
Just lots of chatting to like-minded businesswomen and business owners.

Feeling part of a community is so empowering. In this video, MPWR members share what they get out of networking.

What our members say

"Last night's networking was so much fun. Lots of laughs, and so good to catch up with familiar faces and meet some newbies."
"I always think of these sessions as a bit like going to the staff room at work. Good conversation and the social interaction that I need working on my own."
"Before I started my own business, I was a professional networker, visiting events across the UK. Hands down, MPWR is the BEST networking I have ever attended."
