MYnetwork in Wakefield is relaunching stronger and better and at a new venue, Create Wakefield this Friday!

MYnetwork Wakefield is a networking group with a difference…..there are no fees, no agenda….just businesses supporting each other and Wakefield.

MYnetwork Wakefield have been hosting monthly lunchtime events in Wakefield since August 2012 supported by Ramsdens Solicitors LLP, the Mid Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce, Barclays Bank and the Wakefield Wildcats.

The announcement comes as three new local partners have come on board to support and facilitate the activity, direction and focus of the group and they include First Choice Recruitment, Statement, a design and digital agency and Copiserv, a Wakefield based supplier of office technology.

Sinéad Sopala owner of the group and Marketing Manager at Ramsdens comments:

“MYnetwork is as much about creating a platform to bring local businesses together as it is about bringing business into our communities.

Because the group was born on LinkedIn it allows people to network online……..and now we have 2 monthly meetups in Huddersfield and Wakefield……that’s a whole lot of networking.

Our monthly meetups are free to attend, very relaxed and continue to grow and we’re very excited about welcoming our new partners and changing our location to Create at Wakefield.”

Andrew Choi, Executive Director at the Mid Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce also comments:

“MYnetwork is a great way to support and showcase the wide range of businesses Wakefield has to offer.

We welcome new members to come along and see how the connections made at the event can help grow local businesses and create growth in the local economy.”

Gareth Hunt, Director at Copiserv comments:

“Copiserv are proud to be partnering with the MYNetwork team, we look forward to working closely with the other partners and meeting the fantastic variety of local businesses that attend our monthly events.”

Bryn Sutcliffe, Senior Barclays Business Manager comments: “Barclays is pleased and proud to be supporting MYnetwork which will develop closer links between businesses and organisations within the Wakefield area.”

MYnetwork’s relaunch event is on Friday 8th March at Create from 12:30-1:30pm. Come along and join us for lunch and bring a colleague….networking made easy!
