If you were lucky enough to get tickets to our SOLD OUT Wakefield City Centre Roadshow Launch Event, then you will understand this headline.
There was no other term of phrase to describe our event at The Art House as a resounding success; drinks flowed, people chatted, networking galore.
Mike Denby opened the event and thanked all members and non-members for coming, then followed his beautifully worded and heart-warming speech by showcasing our brand-new re-launch video. Applause filled the room. He then welcomed on to stage the our guest of honour, all the way from London, Head of Marketing for Tileyard, Lucy Macieira. She treated us all to an insightful about Tileyard’s plans and how their plans for the north are booming.
After everyone was uplifted and in good spirits thanks to our two amazing speakers, everyone networked and chatted away, exchanging business cards and discussing how they can help each other’s businesses – a sure delight to watch and be a part of.
Behind the scene we have been dealing with the generic issues that come with a worldwide global pandemic; How can we be safe? What happens if someone tests positive? How can we use the pandemic to our advantage? We have had to deal with it all!
Late and sleepless nights, last-minute pull togethers, endless fidgeting thinking that we have forgotten something – our team have had to endure it all. But we can honestly say that when everything finally comes together and we get to see the joyous occasion of a networking event after over a year out, it really does make all of the hard work worth it – so thank you to our past, present and future attendees for making our first two events such a success.
We still have two more events taking place next week:
Monday 20th September 2021 @ 10am at Junction 32 Outlet
Wednesday 22nd September 2021 @ 10am at Ossett Town Hall
And remember, you don’t have to be a We Are Wakefield member to attend!
See you there…
