We are gearing up for a fantastic Lochaber Ideas Week from Monday November 12 to Friday November 16 so if you haven’t yet booked up for events, now is the time to do it.

Many of the events are free and it is a great way to find out what’s going on in our vibrant business community. Plus it’s an ideal way to develop your own business ideas through inspirational workshops, lectures and networking.

We all know the benefits of networking in business are enormous but it is all too easy to focus on the essential day-to-day tasks in our business and put off networking as a nice idea for another day.

All it really means is investing a bit of time to make connections that will help you in your work. People do business with people. Talking face-to-face is the best way to connect with other people in business, raise awareness of what you do and find out about opportunities you could easily otherwise have missed.

That’s exactly why we created our informal Around Lochaber in 80 Tables event during Lochaber Ideas Week.

This fast-paced and fun speed-networking event is designed to help local businesses get together to promote what they do, find out more about other businesses and spot potential opportunities.

Last year’s attendees had great fun hopping from table to table for short ‘business dates’, getting to know new people and making valuable business connections.

Invest some time in networking – you never know what doors it could open. Give us a call on 01397 705765 to book your table or check out www.lochaberchamber.co.uk for more details. We’d love to see you there.
