I had a great time photographing the LinkedIn Local Hart networking event on Thursday at the Barleymow pub in Hook. LinkedIn Local Hart has been set up by three local friends who own their own businesses: Dan Campling of Brandtastic, Kate Jones of Rocket + Fox Marketing and Rob Molloy of Ally & Mo Media.
I have been to networking events before that felt fairly formal and a little overwhelming but this one was so friendly and relaxed- just the faces behind local businesses meeting in the pub for a drink or two and a chat. There were no formal sixty second introductions, just three useful five minute presentations from local businesses- Geoff Roy from Leapfrog Internet Marketing, Bradley Hatchett from NetworkMyClub and Karen Sanders from the HR Dept.
