The fifth Preston Social is due to take place at the Continental pub this Tuesday, with the title “Does Networking Really Work?”.


We’re in age of social network proliferation. With Linkedin, Twitter, Facebook and Google+ we’re able to discover, meet, collaborate and acquire business and success through online platforms.

What then, does this mean for good old, traditional face-to-face networking? Has social media devalued meet-ups? Is there a relevance for paid networks in this age of free?

The fifth Preston Social will explore the current state of networking and where best to spend our time and, perhaps, our money.

Heather Carey, the director of font57 (a creative copywriting agency) and a long standing member of the Let’s Do Business committee, will be there to give insight to a B2B networking group that is run a cooperative basis by members for members.

We will also have a guest to represent the plight of social networks.

Most importantly, we’ll have you to help push the discussion and shape what is fast becoming a fascinating and enjoyable series of events.

The evening kicks off at 6:30, and as usual there’ll be an emphasis on discussion and participation.
