We are back in Huddersfield this October at the fabulous Hive Cafe on Monday 23rd October where we will begin with coffee and networking from 9.30am – 10.00am and then will go straight in to our meeting from 10.00 – 11.00am. This October, we are delighted to have our Education slot guest speaker Helen Gilchrist from Kirklees Council Local Integrated Partnerships talking abotu “Workplace Loneliness”. Then Andy Hirst who was former Head of content at The Huddersfield Examiner and now writes for positive online news website Huddersfield Hub. Andy will give a talk on how to write a strong news release plus tips on how to make the most of social media such as facebook.  We will also be givign an update on our work including an exciting project that we have been working on over Summer, with the University of Huddersfield which has been recognising some incredible small businesses in Kirklees. 

There will also be Information Exchange and friendly networking time too.

Tickets for this event are £5.50 of which all contributions will cover the coordination, a regular tea/coffee and also support our fundraising campaign to print a Give…A Few Words Love and Cheer Booklet this Christmas 2024. This uplifting booklet (which features a combination of letters and artwork from our 2023 volunteers), will go out in our Christmas post for residents of local care homes, charities and to all our volunteers. Speciality teas, coffees and refreshments will be available to purchase from Hive.

“I’ve attended the Give a Few Words networking group since it launched and not only has it given me the opportunity to promote my local RSPCA Branch, it also introduced me to a fantastic mix of people for all sectors that have been incredibly beneficial to the work we do. If it wasn’t for Give Networking, I wouldn’t have met my amazing new contacts, raised awareness to a new audience or had the accomplishments we’ve had in Huddersfield over the last 12 months. I would highly recommend this group to anyone!”

“…it was such a great meeting, and a valuable thing for Kirklees”

The Give a Few Words networking sessions have been brilliant and what I really welcome is that Sharron has purposely made sure that these include a varied mix of people from different sectors, so that we can all share our experience and expertise to help each other and work together on projects. Personally I’ve already connected with Rachel from The Creative Map, the first person I’ve found who does very similar work to me and a fellow passionate advocate of creativity, and so it’s been great to share ideas and understand ways in which we can work together in exciting ways in the future.

Just to give a few words.

I thought today was brilliant, lovely venue and an amazing , inspiring group of people. I feel its one of the best networking events I have attended.

Really came away feeling inspired and motivated to make a difference.

Thank you so much for making that happen. You are doing amazing.
