We want to get out to meet local businesses, as we live and work in an area rich in SMEs, so yesterday we broke our networking duck and went to a 4Networking business breakfast in Hereford. Well, *I* went to it – we couldn’t both be spared from the grindstone.
I wasn’t sure what to expect – would it be horribly formal, badly-attended and/or a waste of time, or something we would soon find we couldn’t live without? The reality was, as so often, somewhere in the middle. Unfortunately it wasn’t well-attended as the Easter holidays had wrought havoc, but the people who were there were friendly, go-ahead and gentle on the newcomers, and I can see how OpenSure can both benefit itself and help other 4Ners. As well as events, 4N has a busy forum, which I can see becoming a frequent stop on the web.
