“Nobody wants to have a ‘networking conversation’. They are hungry for real conversations…authentic, genuine and sincere. I don’t look at people’s badges to decide if they are worth my time.” - Venture capitalist and entrepreneur Rich Stromback

Dread networking? City Hive networking events are mindfully created to feel like a friend's social; effortlessly fun. No soggy canapes and tepid wine from us.

Instead we produce networking events to facilitate that ‘click’ moment with useful, interesting people working in your particular industry.

Well-facilitated networking feels like play with a purpose. It’s about gaining a real connection with peers, and that is still best achieved face-to-face, while having fun.

“People have been so obsessed with social networks that they really haven’t noticed the human side, the non-algorithm side, is still where it’s at.” - Julia Hobsbawm, the world’s first professor of networking.

The business trip, sports outing, industry conferences or after-work socials can feel exclusive, uninviting, and it's hard to find the time when faced with work/life commitments.

Senior business leaders know this is an essential part of building professional capital. Excelling professionally today is about your ability to connect to others and incorporate different perspectives, ideas and knowledge.

Networking expands business opportunities within organisations and externally, softening encounters with genuine shared moments and personality. It's increasingly accepted as part of the job, not an after-work add-on for the ‘overly ambitious’. 

City Hive networking events are designed around the ethos of team-building and bonding, with a focus on building mutually rewarding long-term relationships and developing a solid, reliable reputation over time.
