Sharing networking tips ... coffee and cakes in the garden!

Colleagues on Tap 'SpoT chat' on networking
Well The Morritt did not disappoint.  Another successful Colleagues on Tap co-working day was had yesterday in sunny Greta Bridge, thanks to the wonderful surroundings, the impeccable service and an interesting (if eclectic!) group of co-workers.
Here's a run-down ...  Joining the SpoT team for the day were:

  • an electrical and energy consultant keen to help businesses to save and make money from energy; 
  • a leadership and behavioural coach who works internationally; 
  • a practitioner who uses the arts to promote health & wellbeing and develop professional skills such as creativity, innovation and enterprise; 
  • an IT Consultant who creates IT strategies for forward thinking companies; an economic development consultant who's currently working on a project for the United Arab Emirates; 
  • a recruitment specialist who works with a global distance learning organisation; 
  • an established consultant who 'researches and realises' a whole range of projects in culture, economic development and higher education across the North East; 
  • an IT solutions provider who specialises in working with small and home based businesses; and 
  • a recruitment consultant who focuses on whatever really matters to her customers across the recruitment process, from support with planning recruitment through to helping people think about how they present themselves through their CVs.

Pop up office in The Morritt's Garden Room
The diversity of the group did nothing but add to the interesting discussions throughout the day.  Although plenty of work was churned out on laptops, the group had plenty of opportunity to share experiences and provide support to each other on topics such as networking and favourite networks around the region, the topic of our SpoT chat, held in The Morritt's beautiful sunny garden.

Hi Jayne and co-working colleagues,

You certainly have a talent for spotting beautiful venues and getting business owners out of their home offices!

Lovely to receive Joy Packard's positive update during the day and to spot familiar faces from the recent co-working event in Stokesley.

I look forward to joining you again in the near future.

This was my first Colleagues on Tap event. Despite arriving late due to client callout, I still managed to make new contacts, participate in some great discussions and get some work done. Lunch was great and the setting was relaxed, welcoming and beautiful. I've already booked my next Co-working day!
