business networking in the Circus Space

Thursday, August 5th, 2010

Business Junction organised a lovely networking event at a Circus school which is only a 10 minute walk from us. Ronny and I went to learn (or not to learn) some juggling skills, have some lovely Greek food and do a lot of mingling.

It was lots of fun, although I am a natural at being hopeless, but look at Ronny:

What a natural. so where the others in our group, here’s another picture. It was a wonderful way to break the ice, as going into a room full of strangers is always daunting but everybody was giggling and dropping balls and chucking them at each other instead of at their own hand (at least most of us did, unintentionally so) and you felt an instant connection with everyone. Someone even tried to coach me and I think I moved up from totally hopeless to mediocrely hopeless.

Here, Mister Business Junction announces to the group that he is seriously hung-over.

All in all, it was well worth spending the money and more over the time of 2 hours + to mingle with other businesses in Hoxton and Shoreditch – we met loads of interesting ones, ranging from a photographer who shot HRH the Duke of Kent (not literally) to IT firms, branding consultants and a not-boring logistics business.
