On the morning of Tuesday 3rd October we hosted our most recent Elevator Pitch networking event, held in the modern and stylish London showroom (based near Old Street) of member company Actiu. The event was chaired by Igor Urra, the Spanish Chamber’s Secretary General, who once all participants had taken their seats proceeded to explain the how the event would work. The general format of the event is as follows:
- One representative from each company is allowed to participate, with a maximum of 16 companies being able to take part. In addition, a no more than two companies from the same sector can register for the event.
- With something of a round table format, each participant begins by presenting their company and what they do to fellow guests, being given a maximum of two minutes to speak. Following this, each participant answers any questions other participants may have about their companies, before participants have a further chance to network more informally and without the previous time constraints over a late breakfast.
This occasion saw 12 participants from a variety of sectors taking part: The Caesar Hotel by Derby Hotels (hotel and accommodation), Actiu Berbegal y Formas (office furniture), Roman y Asociados (public relations), Trison Retail Services (audio visual integration), F- Initiatives (financial consultants), Technorizon UK (IT consultants), Ana’s Croquetas (food), Haymarket Risk (consultancy), H10 Waterloo Hotel (Hotel and Accommodation), Develapps (mobile solutions), Banco Popular (Banking and Financial Services) and Qincho (food sustainability consultants). Given that there were only 12 participants, the event was able to be highly interactive with guests being able to learn a great deal about the other companies and explore potential routes for collaboration.
We would very much like to thank all attendees who took part in this edition of the Elevator Pitch for having joined us, in particular a special thank you to Actiu for hosting the session so tastefully!
