#BoostYourNetwork2, 16 October 2018

Members of Australian Business in Europe – France (ABIE) joined with members of NetworkIrlande and the Franco-British Chamber of Commerce for an energetic speed business networking session hosted by Grant Thorton on Tuesday.

#BoostYourNetwork2 followed on from the highly successful inaugural event in 2017, and saw 40 members from a wide range of industries and business profiles enjoy 110 one-on-one appointments overlooking Grant Thorton’s lush gardens. 

With each face-to-face appointment lasting 15 minutes, participants were able to maximise their schedule by requesting meetings with specific members in advance via a dedicated website to identify business prospects, promote their company and discover new opportunities.

Participants were delighted with the innovative and animated event.

Frederic Calinaud, Partner at Calinaud David Avocats and ABIE Secretary said: “#Boost Your Network2 was great, it was both useful and fun. Being a joint event between the three organisations, it was an excellent opportunity to expand on existing networks. The people here today are a mix of potential clients, potential collaborators, and potential partners in future projects.”

Monica McLaverty, Head of Tourism Ireland, Southern Europe, and NI Board member said: “Thank you for organising such a professional event with great opportunities for me to expand my network and seek out potentially non-traditional opportunities for raising the profile of Ireland and Tourism Ireland in France.  The quality of the organisation, the venue and the meetings were excellent and time very well spent.”

Galina Michkovitch of JTB Europe added: “it was an excellent idea to have networking opportunities with other chambers and groupings, allowing people to expand their networks.”
