Your Partnerships has launched a brand new series of events, kicking off at Boringdon Park Golf Course in Plymouth on Thursday 11th January.

The Connector events are a new-style activity for YP, at a new time. Beginning at 3pm, the event aims to capture details of every attendee, and explicitly link them with the type of businesses that they wish to connect with. These connections were being made on the day, by the YP team, as they discuss with attendees who they wish to meet. In addition, every attendee is sent a list, following the event, of the contact details of the other attendees, allowing them to make connections with others after the event has happened.

Featuring a ‘speed dating’ networking session, as well as unstructured networking, the event is free for anyone to attend, which is a big draw! This first event was widely advertised in the Plymouth area, resulting in 110 attendees, of whom 40% were new to Your Partnerships. This is really exciting, as it allows YP members to connect with new people in their local area, as well as continuing to build relationships with existing YP members.

The next free Connector event is taking place at Somerset County Cricket Club, in Taunton, on 14th Feb. And the third one will be at the Retallack Resort and Spa, in St Columb, Cornwall, on March 5th. It is planned to hold these events monthly, across the areas in which Your Partnerships operates, so watch the Your Partnerships website’s events page for the next one.
