Banyan Bar & Kitchen Community Network - Networking, Fizz and Cocktails
A big thank you to Banyan Bar & Kitchen, York, for hosting an evening of bubbly, networking and cocktail making. It was a great opportunity for local networking and a chance to introduce the range of corporate services on offer through Banyan Bar & Kitchen.
Great fun was had by all during the cocktail making master classes with guests being encouraged to have a go.
Chloe Normington, Business Manager at FTA Law said “It was a fantastic evening with opportunities to network amongst local businesses and professionals. I have since met up with a few local businesses and have made some great connections. We are delighted to be working with York College to discuss how our legal services team can support the development and knowledge of students studying Law within the local area. Thank you for hosting this and bringing us all together!”
Networking Business Breakfast at York Marina
Breakfast and a river cruise at the York Marina was the perfect location for the launch of the brand new York Business Community Network, set up by York College's Business Development Unit.
Peter Dunn, Training Manager at Bettys and Taylors was delighted to join the new Network, saying: “The location and the great welcome from both York College and York Marina was a useful platform for enjoyable discussions with other companies from the region. Bettys and Taylors have worked closely with York College for a number of years and it is good to have an opportunity to also share this with other organisations through this type of event on a regular basis. These kind of events are a fantastic opportunity to share ideas and learn from other organisations.”
York College is looking for more local businesses to host further York Business Community Networking events from September 2019 through to June 2020, for either a breakfast, afternoon or early evening event.
