Business ConneX and Business Women ConneX are about to launch a series of new networking events in September and the first is aimed at parents juggling both business and childcare. Yes, that’s right! This networking event welcomes little ones to come and enjoy play time, whilst parents share business ideas and develop new opportunities. A win, win, win because Business ConneX understands that networking is about connecting and creating new business whilst still allowing time to enjoy parenthood and developing creative ideas.
Business ConneX understands the need for more flexibility for working parents and the need to change the working environment by pushing new boundaries to make it more accessible and easier for parents to work or to start up a business. Most new businesses start up as a result of one parent looking after the children but suddenly, networking events are off limits; the chance to meet like-minded people becomes more difficult and children are not always made to feel welcome. Often, these reasons prevent businesses connecting with each other and realising they have an opportunity to find out more about how they can work together. Business ConneX is all about breaking down the barriers and creating business opportunities, new customers and those new ideas that will enhance a business .
The stress of juggling responsibilities takes its toll on many with family responsibilities having a major impact on their professional lives. There just doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day to meet people, to create new connections and to enhance one’s own professional life.
Business ConneX and Business Women ConneX believes in opening up networking so parents don’t have to choose between being a parent and being an entrepreneur. Networking is about allowing parents to excel in both roles simultaneously and building those long lasting business relationships that continue to enhance business development and opportunities both now and in the future.
